Cubs
Darkr Earlyr

Right, well I hope you're up for some fireside folk on these dark and wintry evenings. It's Cubs, with their second LP 'Darkr Earlyr' following their 2011 debut 'The Whispering Woods' on Rusted Rail records. Taking advantage of the resurgence of interest in leftfield folk, the Irish band features members of A Lilac Decline, Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon, United Bible Studies and Loner Deluxe. Dreamy melodies, stellar improvisation and rustic songcraft make Darkr Earlyr an essential late-season listen.

Yawning Chasm
Songs from Blue House

Yawning Chasm claim that they recorded the bulk of new cassette Songs From Blue House in a shed during a storm. When you listen to this thing you start to believe them. The songs here are folk, more or less, but with the quiet charm that characterises the best bedroom indie. The group frequently back up their acoustic-and-vocal dynamic with synths and electric guitar, something that means cuts like ‘Speed of Night’ have a quality akin to Sung Tongs-era Animal Collective. Is nice.

Good Shepherd
Her Darke Aspects

Good Shepherd is the solo project of Cambridgeshire-based musician Duncan Poyser, who keeps things folky and acoustic, apart from when he allows electronics to disrupt him. Her Darke Aspects, his second release for the Rusted Rail label, fills a 3” CD with 6 songs, and is packaged in a hand-stamped cardboard sleeve.

Half Forward Line
The Back of Mass

I’m already interested in an album when it was recorded over two days in a Derelict Irish Rural Pub. Was it derelict at the start of the sessions, or just at the end? I also like short sharp albums, so Half Forward Line’s half hour stomper - a jangler, a power-popper, a sharp dose, a pounder - has lots going for it. We’ve got members of So Cow and Oh Boland if they mean anything to you, and we’ve got songs about social anxiety which will probably mean something to all of us. “The Back Of Mass” comes on cassette - perhaps all they had to record on in the pub.

Loner Deluxe
Songs I Taped Off The Radio

Heavily bearded man about town and Rusted Rail head honcho Keith Wallace returns with the first album in ages from his folk/electronic/sci fi project Loner Deluxe.  This promises to be a varied opus which is said to play like a mixtape from the artist himself. Wild and wondrous creativity plus you get a bit of his shirt with each copy. Buy the lot and clothe yourself.

A Lilac Decline is the solo project of Cecilia Danell, of both Cubs and Loner Deluxe. The Mountain Rages is an atmospheric suite of intuitive folk music recorded with a brace of traditional instruments, field recordings, wine glasses, shortwave radios etc. for a intimate and individual DIY sound. Cassette release on Rusted Rail.

Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon
The Statue of The Hunter is Lost at Sea

The third album by Phantom Dog Beneath The Moon arrives after seven years away, but it seems that time has only allowed the Irish group to sound more like themselves. Third album The Statue of The Hunter is Lost at Sea has a special feel to it: something in the way that folk songs become swathed in wisps of shoegaze and abstract drones is mysterious and ineffable. It’s special stuff! CD on the Rusted Rail label.
