Marissa Nadler – Blue Vapor (2018)

“The eighth album from Marissa Nadler, For My Crimes, is the sound of turmoil giving way to truth. The songs stare down the dark realization that love may not be enough to keep two people together through distance and differing needs. By asking these difficult questions about her relationships, Nadler has found a stronger sense of self and a sharper voice as both a songwriter and a vocalist, culminating in her most evocative entry in an already impressive discography. The album is set for release on September 28, via Bella Union and Sacred Bones.” Bandcamp

Bonus song: Marissa Nadler plays Fleetwood Mac and she does it brilliantly!

Thus Owls – Future/Past (2018)

“Montreal by way of Sweden art rock ensemble Thus Owls drastically up the stakes on their fourth full-length. The Mountain That We Live Upon capitalizes on the creative momentum of their previous EP to catapult them to a new level of sonic distinction. Every element of their songcraft has been honed to serve the band’s increasingly unique vision on this release.
While Portishead still echoes as a favourable touchstone, Mountain carves out a path deeper into the progressive psychedelic territory of Pink Floyd and the Savage Rose, marrying superb musicianship and bold experimentation with transcendentally memorable melodicism.” Source

Jamey Johnson, Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton & Lee Ann Womack – Gotta Serve Somebody (2018)

“The terrific must-see Muscle Shoals documentary from 2013 kick-started a revival of sorts for the music that emerged, perhaps exploded is more appropriate, from this sleepy Alabama town. That set the stage for a musical follow-up tribute which finds 17 diverse roots acts offering their own interpretations to a variety of songs recorded there.” Source

Marc Ribot – Bella Ciao (Goodbye Beautiful)(feat. Tom Waits)(2018)

“Bella Ciao (Goodbye Beautiful)” is an Italian anti-Fascist folk ballad, and the first song Waits has been featured on in two years. “I played Tom a bunch of the tunes and he immediately bonded with that one,” said Ribot in an official statement. “Of course, he brings a certain gravitas to everything he does – my Italian friends say he sounds exactly like an old ‘partigiano’ (resistance fighter).” Source

decker. – Awake (2018)

“In the simplest terms, decker. is a singer/songwriter based in Sedona, Arizona. A more apt description would be musical mystic. He, himself, describes his sound as “psychedelic desert folk,” drawing inspiration directly from the vortexes of the red rock mountains and canyons where he resides—an area so widely renowned for its cosmic energy that millions of spiritual travelers flock there every year in an attempt to harness its power. With a handful of self-released recordings to his name that have garnered praise from KEXP, Magnet Magazine and No Depression among others, decker. signed with revered independent label Royal Potato Family in 2017 to release a 10-song retrospective entitled ‘Into The Red.’ In 2018, he returns with a full-length collection of new material, ‘Born To Wake Up.’ Where previous albums have leaned darker in mood and content, the latest finds him maturing in his artistic viewpoint, offering glimpses of optimism and light across a range of songs like “Awake,” “Smudge” and “The Matador.” Glide Magazine recently wrote, “decker. is one of the country’s most criminally underrated songwriters.” With the release of ‘Born To Wake Up,’ that should all be changing.”

Tim Rutili & Craig Ross – Choke (2018)

““Best record I’ve heard in a long time – each song wrapped in it’s own unique foil of odd old colors that get brighter each time you hear – every song worth a good long soak.” – M. Ward

“10 seconds to collapse is brilliant – Tim Rutili and Craig Ross make music of unhinged genius and bruised beauty” – Mark Lanegan

“Melancholy humor, playful messy bombast – it gets the car running then drives it into a ditch to stagger naked into the woods. This is a vast and unpredictable ride. Listen loud .” – Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater)”
