Hayes Carll – Jesus and Elvis (2018)

“Hayes Carll will have new music in 2019. His sixth record will be called What It Is, and will be released on February 15th via Dualtone Records. It will feature the return of Hayes working with producer Brad Jones, who also produced Carll’s 2008 breakout Trouble In Mind, and his 2011 followup KMAG YOYO. The new album was recorded at Alex the Great Studio in Nashville, Tennessee.” SCM

Uffe Lorenzen – Dansker (2017)

“Uffe Lorenzen (alias Lorenzo Woodrose) is the frontman of Baby Woodrose and Spids Nøgenhat but from now on he will be recording and performing under his own name and be singing in Danish. The first result is the new solo album Galmandsværk due out November 10th which was conceived during a vacation on the small volcanic island Gomera near the coast of Marocco where he stayed in a small room doing nothing but writing new songs for 10 weeks.” Bandcamp

Scott Hirsch – Nothing But Time (2018)


“Songwriter and multi-instrumentalist/producer Scott Hirsch has recorded a follow up to his critically acclaimed 2016 record, Blue Rider Songs. On Lost Time Behind the Moon, Scott chronicles confronting ghosts of the past, acknowledging that darkness rides alongside the light, and avoiding the pitfalls of regret. The record was recorded and produced by Hirsch with the help of Mike Coykendall (M Ward), and features musical guests William Tyler, Mikael Jorgensen (Wilco), Orpheo McCord (Edward Sharpe), Jimmy Calire (America) and Jesse Siebenberg (Lukas Nelson, Supertramp).” Bandcamp

Micah P. Hinson – The Sleep of the Damned (2018)

“Micah P. Hinson is an old fashioned trouble man who fell prey to drugs and loose women, winding up homeless, destitute and incarcerated by the time most of his peers were filling out college applications. Music was his savior, and since his 2003 debut, he s pieced together a life for himself in his sleepy hometown of Abilene, TX. Recorded in 24 hours somewhere in east Texas, the new album is the follow up to last year’s universally~lauded, Micah P. Hinson Presents the Holy Strangers.” Source

Bonnie “Prince” Billy, Joan Shelley, Elsa Hansen Oldham & Nathan Salsburg – If You Ever Get to Houston (2018)

“The result is Hummingbirds & Helicopters Vol 1: A Benefit for South Texas, a beautifully curated homage to the musical culture and history of the Gulf Coast region. The album’s 11 tracks include Holland’s atmospheric, emotionally potent cover of Randy Newman’s “Louisiana 1927” (featuring Thor and Friends), a warm interpretation of Mickey Newbury’s “If You Ever Get to Houston” led by Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Dean Ween’s cover of “Galveston” by Jimmy Webb (popularized by Glen Campbell), and Big Thief’s beautifully sparse version of Twain’s “High Tide”…Album proceeds will be donated to the UN award-winning Schoolbox Project, a 501c3 non-profit that provides trauma-informed care for children rendered homeless or without access to education due to the deluge. As the Schoolbox Project’s work in Texas will soon wind down, additional funds raised will support continuing relief work in the hurricane-affected areas of the Gulf and Caribbean, including Puerto Rico. “I wanted to produce an album that would both give respect to the powerful musical culture of the gulf coast, and literally support some of the hardest-hit populations in the area,” says Holland.” Source

Buxton – This Place Reminds Me Of You (2018)

“As far as a sound goes, the music on Stay Out Late is definitely Buxton, but the instrumentation and arrangements are vastly different from their typical two or three guitar sound from the past. The band employed producer Thom Monahan again, and went to Sonic Ranch to start work on the record that shows growth and better compositions than their previous albums. “There was the idea that Sergio had these demos, and there were components about the songs that we liked, but also figuring out how to make them Buxton songs and make it a full band record. So it became, finding what you like about a song, then replicating it with the full band sound. Thom has this thing where you play him a song and he says, ‘well, that needs to be faster,’ and he has no problem telling you what you need to hear when you’re making a record,” says Wise.” Source
