Bert Jansch - Damien Jurado

Jansch, Bert - Bert Jansch (RSD15) Artist Bert Jansch
Title Bert Jansch (RSD15)
Label Sanctuary
Bert Jansch’s debut not only inspired an entire generation to pick up the guitar, it also captured this taciturn Scot’s character perfectly. 
The album was released in 1965 and has been a cornerstone of British music ever since. 
It melds the styles of blues pioneer Elizabeth Cotten and the Charles Mingus-influenced jazz inflections of the British acoustic master Davy Graham, adds all kinds of baroque complexities, and hides everything under melodic sophistication.

Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit - Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit Artist Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit - Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Title Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit - Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit
Label Lightning Rod Records

The second album by former Drive By Truckers guitarist Jason Isbell’s roots-rocking outfit the 400 Unit is as good as modern southern rock gets. A cunning mixture of contemporary indie rock and alt country in the style of acts like Fleet Foxes and Band of Horses with the boogie energy of vintage Allman Brothers, these 11 songs feature twangy pop, extended blues-rocking jams, sweet country soul, and everything else that’s good about Isbell’s native Alabama.

“It’s the start of a brand new adventure.” sings Gary Louris on “Quiet Corners & Empty Spaces”, the opening track on The Jayhawks’ new album Paging Mr. Proust.

Jenny & Johnny - Im Having Fun Now Artist Jenny (Lewis) & Johnny (Jonathan Rice)
Title I'm Having Fun Now
Label
Jenny and Johnny - the eagerly anticipated new project from Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis and the acclaimed singer-songwriter Johnathan Rice - have confirmed details of their first full UK tour that will commence at the end of November. The tour will follow the release of their debut album ‘I’m Having Fun Now’ that has already earned rave reviews in the States.
During hours of downtime on her ‘Acid Tongue’ world tour, Jenny and Johnathan Rice began writing a batch of songs different from anything they had previously created. During a nine day demo session in LA in October 2009, helmed by Rilo Kiley’s Pierre De Reeder, Jenny and Johnny played as many instruments as possible, right down to the drums, bringing in Jason Boesel for additional embellishments. The four friends were so happy with the results that Lewis and Rice decided to start a brand new band and finish the record. In late December the two songwriters drove from Los Angeles to Omaha, Nebraska to work with their friend, Mike Mogis.  

LP comes with the whole album on CD too!

The album begins with a 15-minute live broadcast from KWEM in Memphis, hosted by Johnny Cash in May 1955, the same month he recorded his first songs on Sun.

Johns, Ethan - Silver Liner Artist Ethan Johns
Title Silver Liner
Label Three Crows
Silver Liner, the new album from Ethan Johns (With The Black Eyed Dogs), will be released on Three Crows Records via Caroline International.
The album sees Ethan Johns joined by a stellar cast of musicians - including fellow Black Eyed Dogs, BJ Cole and Jeremy Stacey.

Silver Liner is Ethan Johns’ third album as an artist. Although long renowned for the vividness and purity of his production work with the likes of Ryan Adams, Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling and Paul McCartney, he has always worn more than one hat; an accomplished musician on a variety of instruments, he has frequently contributed on both sides of the control room glass, and the rarefied level of this polymath’s talents as a songwriter and performer have lately been revealed.

Joseph, Kathryn - Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I Have Spilled Artist Kathryn Joseph
Title Bones You Have Thrown Me And Blood I Have Spilled
Label Hits The Fans

SCOTTISH ALBUM OF THE YEAR winner 2015


Kathryn Joseph released her debut album "bones you have thrown me and blood I’ve spilled" in January 2015; what started as an album "kickstarted" by dedicated fans has quietly and organically become a much loved, critically acclaimed album of 2015 and in June became the winner of Scottish Album of the Year (the longlist included Young Fathers, Belle & Sebastian, Mogwai and Paulo Nutini) 

Prior to her debut release Kathryn Joseph was regarded one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets; prodigiously talented and criminally underrated her voice possesses the other-worldly quality comparable to Ms Newsom and Björk; but she is by no means of an ilk. Better compared with Anthony Heggarty; she is an artist in every way; unique and soulful, and at the core a beautiful unnerving truth.

It was captured predominantly live in just a week by Scottish music industry veteran Marcus Mackay at the diving bell lounge (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Trembling Bells, Alasdair Roberts, Sparrow and the Workshop).

Joseph, Martyn - Sanctuary Artist Martyn Joseph
Title Sanctuary
Label Pipe
Martyn Joseph has gone back to the future - and a man he describes as "an amazing doctor of sound" - for his new album. Sanctuary, the Welsh singer-songwriter’s twenty first studio release in a prolific career spanning four decades, finds him reunited with Ben Wisch, the three time Grammy Award-winning producer who helmed 1992’s Being There. When the two originally got together, Joseph had signed to Sony Records and Wisch had masterminded Marc Cohn’s smash hit single, ’Walking In Memphis’. Joseph and Wisch convened at the latter’s house in Ridgewood, New Jersey, where they recorded the guts of Sanctuary with a stellar cast of musicians, including guitarist Kevin Barry (Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ray LaMontagne), bassist Zev Katz (Jeff Beck, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen) and drummer Ben Whittman (Paul Simon, Laurie Anderson, Rosanne Cash), providing "added vibe and nuance". His joy in recording Sanctuary is equalled by the joy of listening to the completed work, which musically pools myriad influences and is lyrically contemplative, honest and big-hearted. Sanctuary affirms Joseph’s reputation as the Welsh Springsteen, an amazing live performer, renowned craftsman and guitarist whose songs profoundly articulate the human condition.
