Donovan
Barabajagal

Barabajagal was Donovan’s 7th album. It finds the Welsh 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 m...view item »

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 reprod...view item »

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 Welsh Dylan, begin to move away from his folk roots. This is evidenced by the psych-tinged title track and the wonderful...view item »

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...view item »

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 ...view item »

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 h...view item »

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 a...view item »

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....view item »

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 ma...view item »

Human Hair
My Life as a Beast and Lowly Form

Here’s the debut album by UK indie rock’s new big hopes, Human Hair, who boast a Lovver amongst their ranks and specialise in a sparky Les Savy Fav-meets-The Fall post-punk full of fuzzy guitars, fizzy drums, cheeky repetitive lead guitar l...view item »

Psapp
What Makes Us Glow

Frequently straddling just the right side of the line between clever and annoying, Psapp have occasionally produced moments of real inspiration over their decade or so existence. Their brand of quirky toy instrument influenced pop music has proved popular enough for them to provide the theme tune to ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ amongst oth...view item »

Psapp
Wet Salt

Here’s the latest single from indietronic-pop duo Psapp, who also have an album out this week. On the A side we’ve got ‘Wet Salt’, which mixes tinkly calypso rhythms with a bright synth melody and silky almost Saint Etienne-ish vocals. You probably know the s...view item »

Family Fodder
Variety

I just reviewed Black Rain’s first new 12” in about 17 years, and now I’ve another artist to write about who I was too young for first time round - Family Fodder, who have apparently been going since way back in 1975! The press release repeatedly brands th...view item »

Guillemots
Hello Land

Hello Land is the first of four planned self-released albums by Guillemots, and it is more of their trademark sound; ornate strings, elfin vocals (by Fyfe Dangerfield), quivery effects, and unexpected time signatures. The songs are largely free-form, making this something to be listened to as a whole, rather than a singles collection. There is n...view item »
