Yorkston/Thorne/Khan - Everything Sacred (Domino)
"It isn't easy to pigeon-hole but it could just be one of the albums of the year"
"Spits in the face of normal genre classifications...Enlightened and challenging, an Incredible String Band for a brave new world"
"Bravely original Indian-folk-jazz fusion"
4/5 The Guardian
"New Album of the Month"
5/5 Record Collector
Barbarossa - Bloodline (Memphis Industries)
"A great example of someone following their musical instincts into new areas and finding success, Bloodlines is also a highlight of the year so far."
8/10 Drowned In Sound
"Bloodlines is a moving, grand achievement."
"Tender yet triumphant, Bloodlines marks Barbarossa as one of Britain's most versatile and adventurous artists."
Title track 'Bloodline' used prominently in US TV series Ray Donovan (Showtime), Elementary (CBS) and Suits (USA Network/NBC)
Jeffrey Lewis - A Turn In The Dream Songs (Rough Trade)
"Unabashedly weird, surprising wise, A Turn In The Dream-Songs is Lewis at his most accessible and affecting."
"Jeffrey comes out of it all reeking of genius."
9/10 DIY Magazine
"The classy acoustic band, sounding live and loose but sonically dynamite, the vintage analogue recording/mixing process combine to make A Turn In The Dream-Songs the most solid and enjoyable album of Jeffrey’s now decade-long strange career."
The Shivers - More (Silence Breaks)
"Zarriello is a songwriter of exceptional talent, and this album feels like his most complete work. It’s a mainstay of my record collection."
Laura Barton, The Guardian (Read Feature)
"Keith Zarriello’s voice carries an eerie, mesmerizing eroticism."
"More is an ambitious collection of genuine love songs that manage to be smart, gritty, and bursting with heart. There’s nothing affected, cutesy clever, or self-conscious about the Shivers’ music – it manages to be both simple and undeniably vital."
The Vaselines - Sex With An X (SubPop)
"Sex With An X feels like the best kind of comeback: the organic reunion of two songwriters who've rediscovered how much they enjoy making music together - it's a good thing they've given us one more album that's sure to stand the test of time."
"Sex With an X exceeds all of the expectations we didn’t know we had."
Drowned In Sound
"A whopping 23 years since their last album Eugene Kelly and Frances McKee remain the Ramones of sunbeam, patty-cake pop."
Brigid Mae Power - The Two Worlds LP (Tompkins Square)
"Musically, The Two Worlds is mesmeric...all detail is couched in a languid analogue sound that oozes authenticity"
Folk Radio UK
"Power's most ambitious and her most introspective...this album shines"
Yorkston/Thorne/Khan - Neuk Wight Delhi All-Stars LP (Domino)
"In exercising more restraint and relying more on mood, groove and structure, their second album is a game-changing masterpiece"
5/5 Rolling Stone
"The sound they conjure is heavenly"
5/5 Mojo Magazine
Lankum - Between The Earth And Sky LP (Rough Trade)
"Urgent, desperate and detonating, full of lyrics and sounds smacking together like waves shattering stones in a storm"
5/5 The Guardian
"All four members are gifted musicians, but they sacrifice virtuosity over a rough-hewn spiritedness which makes Between The Earth… a thrilling listen."
5/5 Record Collector

Wookalily - Everything is Normal
"At times, there is a vintage, throw-back vibe, at others, it is utterly other-worldly – ethereal and even a little bit spooky – then it swerves to an almost child-like innocence. This is music of complexity and many vibrant textures, yet there is a darkness, a broody echo arched in the background."
Folk and Tumble (full article here)
"Not immediately accessible, Everything Is Normal … requires you to work to get the most out of its low cast musical and lyrical nuances, but I promise you, the effort pays off."
