Donovan
Barabajagal

Barabajagal was Donovan’s 7th album. It finds the Scottish folk/pop singer/songwriter in a rockier than usual frame of mind. The title track featured Jeff Beck on guitar and laid down a bluesy/psych-rock groove, with Superlungs (My Supergirl) and the exploratory psychedelia of Atlantis providing some of Donovan’s best moments. The album was produced by Mickie Most and was originally released in 1969. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy.

Donovan
Mellow Yellow

“I’m-a just-a mad-a ‘bout-a Saffron / She’s just mad about me / They call me Mellow Yellow (quite rightly!)” mutters genre-blending, kindly and highly relaxed Scot Donovan Phillips Leitch on trademark song ‘Mellow Yellow’. And here it is again, as a beautifully faithful Abbey Road reproduction of the original 1967 release.

Donovan
Sunshine Superman

Sunshine Superman by Donovan was originally released in 1967 - it should have been the year before but some red tape nonsense meant it was delayed. It was his third album and saw the man sometimes known as The Scottish Dylan, begin to move away from his folk roots. This is evidenced by the psych-tinged title track and the wonderful Season Of The Witch. Reissue LP on The State51 Conspiracy. Limited to 300 copies, cut at Abbey Road.

CJ Mirra
STATIC (Original Surf Soundtracks, Vol. 1)

CJ Mirra makes surf music for those crazy enough to take to the water in cold climates such as Iceland, Scotland, The Faroe Islands and Ireland. By mixing ethereal sounds, lo-fi guitar work and dynamic neo-classical compositions on STATIC (Original Surf Soundtrack Vol. 1) he captures the rough and tumble of life in the cold, cold water. LP on The State51 Conspiracy.

Denis Jones
3333

Denis Jones makes music that has been described as ‘scuzzy Mancunian blues’ and ‘ear-massaging and heart-stirring’. His new album, 3333, is the final part of a trilogy that began 15 years ago. He has been likened to One World-era John Martyn, although since this comparison has added more electronic elements to his sound. He shares his studio space with Graham Massey of 808 State and Andrew Carthy, aka Mr. Scruff whose advice and equipment have proved invaluable. CD on The State51 Conspiracy.

Dan Michaelson
First Light

Dan Michaelson is without his band The Coastguards but with the use of a full orchestra on his new album First Light. However, the lush instrumentation, arranged by Arnulf Lindner, doesn’t hide the stripped back nature of his earlier work and also takes influences that set him on his musical journey such as Townes Van Zandt, Lee Hazlewood, Leonard Cohen and Nick Drake. Gatefold LP and CD.

Saulius Petreikis & Domas Strupinskas
Lietava

Saulius Petreiki and Domas Strupinskas’s album Lietava presents an array of sixteen traditional folk instruments from their native Lithuania, all of which have fallen out of regular public use and some of which have scarcely even been recorded before. This album succeeds as a set of compositions and as a work of cultural archaeology. Released by Thestate51 Conspiracy.

Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards
Memory

Dan Michaelson completes his album trilogy with Memory. With his band The Coastguards, he creates thoughtful indie-folk music with a storyteller’s sense of drama. Both CD and vinyl editions are packaged with a bonus disc containing 6 exclusive tracks, plus a poster, in hand-assembled packaging.

Dan Michaelson and The Coastguards
Distance

'Distance' is the fourth record from British songwriter Dan Michaelson, who plays with twinkly guitar riffs, a crackling baritone and a whole lot of melancholy. Backed by the aptly themed Coastguards, these eight songs are short and succinct vignettes comprised of simple, indelible melodies that make Michaelson sound somewhat like London's version of Real Estate; though at other times, his sombre piano balladry makes him sound more of a traditionalist. The record was produced in the same New York area Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind was filmed, and you can so totally tell.  Tracks: Evergreen Bones Burning Hearts Every Step Getting It All Wrong Evening Light Your Beauty Still Rules Somewhere
