William Elliott Whitmore

Chicago’s Bloodshot Records (The Mekons, Murder By Death) release an LP of covers by seasoned troubador WIlliam Elliott Whitmore. Whitmore COVERS (geddit?) a lot of ground on Kilonova. Some of the tunes here were written relatively recently - he opens with a version of The Magnetic Fields’ ‘Fear Of Trains’, for instance - while others date back to the Great Depression. However old the source material, Whitmore and his guitar always imbue these ten songs with a dose of whisky-soaked wisdom.

William Elliot Whitmore & Esme Patterson
Play Each Other's Songs

As advertised, this 7” features William Elliott Whitmore playing one of Esme Patterson’s songs, as well as Esme Patterson playing one of William Elliott Whitmore’s songs. They seem to have an affinity for one another, wrapping their voices around each other’s different styles while each remaining themselves.

Andrew Bird / Nora O'Connor / Robbie Fulks

Extremely limited 7” vinyl from Bloodshot Records. Celebrating 20 years in existence, the label has Andrew Bird and Nora O’Connor covering a Robbie Fulks song and then Robbie returning the favour. It’s a pretty perfect summation of the ferocious alt-country the label trades in. The violin arrangements and male/female vocals are lovely, plus there’s only 1000 copies worldwide.


Taking a similar tact as Jack White, Mekons wanting to create perform and record all at the same time. Working more as a document or even a piece of performance art Existentialism was created live in front of a small audience and recorded with a single microphone in the middle of the room. Originally only available through the band, this is the first time it has been officially released.

The Mekons & Robbie Fulks

The Mekons decamped to the distant Scottish isle of Jura with international musical traveller Robbie Fulks to record this album. While they may be best known for their original punk action, they’ve moved into country areas since, and Jura proves the perfect opportunity to go fully island-folk. Ancient sounding tunes, on the Bloodshot label.


Freakwater do make country music, but they only do it on their own terms. So that means subtle harmonies from the two singers, delicate bass playing from Dave Grey and a blend of bluegrass, folk and blues. Scheherazade is their first album in a decade and has been put out by Bloodshot on vinyl LP and CD.

Murder By Death
Big, Dark Love

Country pub rock from Indiana’s Murder By Death. With fifteen years in the business the lighters in the air anthemic nature of these ten songs boast an earned authenticity not always present with this nostalgic, folksy band. Still, Big, Dark Love is sure to soundtrack a few emotional bromance film sequences. Out on CD & vinyl LP from Bloodshot.

Maggie Bjorklund

After years of touring in Jack White's band, as well as contributing to his latest solo venture, 'Lazaretto', Maggie Bjorklund is set to step out on her own and release 'Shaken'. The record shows off Bjorklund's own brand of alt-country, with her prowess as a singer and pedal steel guitarist pushed to the forefront of these close-up recordings.
