Rachel Laven – Love & Luccheses (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#:
Country:USA
Year: 2016
Genre:americana

Rachel Laven is a woman now.

Thats the takeaway from her new solo album, Love & Luccheses, a country-folk effort co-produced with musician Sean Sankey.

Her grandmothers boots, which inspired the title track, are the least of it. The talented, introspective 24-year-old singer-songwriters grown-up lyrics reveal shes not peddling puppy love and crushes or interested, she said, in being the pretty girl with the guitar.

Its a statement of where Im at right now, Laven said. A lot of those songs flowed out quickly. It was freeing for me.

For those who cling to an image of her as the sweet, cherub-cheeked girl singing on weekends at The Cove with the Lavens family band, its time to let it go.

She certainly has.

Lavens love life is the focus of her sophomore album. She shares intimate bedroom moments in Only Thing Familiar Is You, jumps into the back seat in Finish Line and dares to put her frisky heart in mortal danger in the rollicking Do You Dare.

O’Hooley & Tidow – Shadows (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#:
Country:UK
Year:2016
Genre:folk

Belinda O Hooley and Heidi Tidow are the contemporary English answer to the remarkable Canadian duo of Anna McGarrigle and her late sister, Kate. They sing together with the ease of a married couple, matching delicate and increasingly brave harmony vocals against O Hooley s thoughtful piano work. And they are exceptional songwriters, as they prove with this unusual set. They tackle English racism, cheap labour and confused voters in the poignant Made in England, written long before Brexit. Then there are songs about vulnerability, including a children s hymn from 1900, now reworked as a bleak, threatening commentary on the church and child abuse, and a charming, epic love song inspired by orphaned elephants in Kenya. Then they add a tribute to the woman who helped the recovery of shell-shocked first world war troops by teaching them Morris dancing, and an exquisite treatment of Joni Mitchell s River.

My Girl The River – This Aint No Fairytale (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC / Lossless / WEB
Label/Cat#:Super Tiny Records
Country:USA
Year: 2016
Format:WEB
Genre:americana,folk

My Girl The River's fabulous debut album, This Aint No Fairytale, is a lovely melange of Americana-Roots music. Kris Wilkinson Hughes developed the project. Hughes, indigenous to Louisiana and a former resident of the epicenter of roots music, Nashville, seems to revel in writing songs about the southern United States. Songs like Come Back To Nashville and Covington bring to mind works by other fellow alt-country musicians Jason Isbell and Lucinda Williams. These tracks, although enjoyable in every setting, feel like they would be best appropriate for road trips across the Great American interstates and byways.

Although the record feels about as American as apple pie, Kris s husband and bassist on the album, Joe, is a native of the United Kingdom. The Hughes have been residents of Bedford, England for approximately 18 years, and although they live very far away from Nashville and Covington, Louisiana, all of these songs still feel very deep rooted in the customs and traditions of southern Americana. Clearly the upbringing and early life of Kris in the south had a major weight on her, as every song is distinctly all-American.

This Ain t No Fairytale has an array of great songs. One of the standouts is the fantastic Woods Behind Our House. With a roots-based acoustic feel, this song is also the first single from the album. It demonstrates very well the knack that My Girl The River has for exceptional songwriting. Another knockout is Come Back to Nashville, reflecting Kris s love and nostalgia for the Music City.

It is important to note that while Kris is the frontwoman for the group, her husband Joe is the primary songwriter behind this project. Joe is also a successful songwriter in his own right, and even co-wrote the Annie Lennox smash hit, No More I Love You s. Kris and Joe are a pair to be reckoned with.

The album s conclusion The Last Song was actually the first song written for the project. This is the perfect way to close the album, and leave the listener hooked for the next entry in My Girl The River s catalogue. With This Ain t No Fairytale, one can only hope that we don t have long to wait until the next chapter in their saga. Overall, this debut album s title reigns true. While this record may not be a fairytale, it will become something that is just as celebrated over the years to come.

Michael McDermott – Willow Springs (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#:Pauper Sky Records
Country:USA
Year:June 17, 2016
Genre:folk,singer/songwriter

You won t have to visit veteran singer-songwriter Michael McDermott s home in the titular town to know he has a pretty substantial collection of Dylan, Mellencamp and Springsteen CDs. On his 10th album in a 25-year career, the recently clean and sober McDermott pays tribute to those influences, and others, by wrapping this entire folk-rock (emphasis on the former) release around those sources.

There s nothing wrong with that of course; half the artists in his field have similar musical references, and McDermott has strong enough melodic and especially lyrical talents to carve out a distinctive niche, especially as this album moves into its second half.

McDermott has a lot to say, and uses these songs to say it. His plentiful, often colorful words enliven these topics, whether it s about starting over with a new love ( Let a Little Light In ), reflecting on old personal demons, now hopefully behind him ( Half Empty Kind of Guy ) or spinning a tale of a loser on the run from the law in the very Springsteen-ish right down to its title Getaway Car. Occasionally he gets caught up in his own artful alliteration for alliteration s sake in the title track where he talks his way through Pimps and pushers, presidents/ the paupers preach of tenements like he s aiming to prove he can one-up Dylan at his own game.

There isn t much comic relief, but McDermott displays dry humor on the sly Folksinger where he uses his own occupation ( I don t want to be a folksinger anymore/ think I ll write me a big hit song and be loved and adored/ I ll have handlers and groupies and hell you know what that s for ) as a metaphor for soldiers, Christians and gravediggers who may also question their professions. Some tunes like the seven-minute Shadow in the Window, a story song likely about the recent death of his father, are touching, ruminative and almost painfully introspective.

The crisp, predominantly acoustic instrumentation enhanced by such well-known industry names as Will Kimbrough (Willie Sugarcapps) and keyboardist John Deaderick (Don Henley) along with McDermott s own production emphasizes his voice and words, perhaps to the detriment of melodies that often seem like vessels to contain them. That said, McDermott s obvious love of craft, and refusal to either sell out or commercialize his rootsy sound after all these years is commendable. And even if he s not pushing the boundaries of his genre, this album makes you appreciate his talents and root for him to succeed in an industry that hasn t shown much love for his output in the past quarter century of trying.

Kree Harrison – This Old Thing (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#: Plaid Flag Records
Country:USA
Year:Jul 08, 2016
Genre:country

There s a song on Kree Harrison s just-released This Old Thing album that will stop time. It s an emotional ballad called Wanted It That Way that finds the 26-year-old singer eulogizing her mother Kathy, who died in 2009. The nearly blow-for-blow account of time spent afterward is stunning and raw even before it gets to the final verse.

Songs like Wanted It That Way are often difficult for a listener to access. They can be too personal, unless of course the story is so powerful that it grabs you by the throat and squeezes. Tears replace ones breath as Harrison sings:

I found a letter in your dresser drawer / With my name and no address / Waiting for me in a birthday card that you never sent / You spoke to me like you never have / With words you held back all this time / Were the ones you could never say while you were alive / Why did I have to hear you re proud of me this way / Gonna carry this letter around so you re hear every day / Cause I know, yes I know, you would have wanted it that way.

Harrison tells Taste of Country that her mother wasn t necessarily the type to lay the adulation on thick, although she s quick to characterize their relationship as best friends. Natalie Hemby helped with the song s hook, but the story one Harrison says she s not sure if she ll be able to perform is unquestionably hers.

It was still pretty fresh, the tragedy, Harrison, a Season 12 American Idol runner-up, says. And I just found the letter that you hear about in the song. It literally fell out of a card and I brought it to Natalie that day. I was like This is crazy to me that I ve never been given this.

Harrison has been in Nashville for 16 years, and This Old Thing is her first recording of any kind. She aimed for timeless with the 13 songs, and the music reflects an old soul. Call it country-soul if you d like she admits with artists like Chris Stapleton on top of mind, the timing for the album couldn t be better. But it s a true representation of who she is right now: a country singer heavily influenced by Otis Redding.

I ve been so stubborn for my whole life, that s why I never put anything out, she jokes. I ve made music. I ve done demos and done sessions, but I didn t want to put anything out that was just good rather than great, because I m gonna have to play it every night.

Fans may have grown impatient. After American Idol Harrison took a year to figure out who she was as an artist. She went dark on social media (some thought she may have died) but came back by beginning to share powerful vocal showcases on Facebook. The single This Old Thing was released in April, and since then she s been sharing her debut album s secrets. Once lost, Harrison found her voice again with the help of friends like John Osborne of Brothers Osborne and roommate/co-writer Maren Morris.

Writer Trent Dabbs also helped Harrison write Wanted It That Way. The album was recorded live to tape at Echo Mountain Recording Studio in Asheville, N.C., which means it s not a flawless production. Like Stapleton, Morris, Musgraves and so many others who are making lyrical depth cool again however, Harrison s flaws add character.

Kaela Rowan – The Fruited Thorn (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#: Shoogle Records
Country:UK
Year:2016
Genre:folk

In 2014 Kaela Rowan released her first solo album, Menagerie, a dreamy, imaginative and compelling exploration of traditional and contemporary themes, showcasing the unique vocals that Kaela has previously provided for Mouth Music, The Bevvy Sisters and, more recently, on Shooglenifty s The Untied Knot (read our review here).

In her second solo album, The Fruited Thorn, Kaela charts an unexpected course by turning to the traditional songs that inspired her as a young singer in Lochaber. Developing arrangements and co-producing the album with her partner James MacKenzie (Percussion, Guitars, Keyboard, Programming, Vocals) and with core collaborator Ewan MacPherson (Guitars, Mandolin, Jaw Harp), both of Shooglenifty, Kaela has gathered an impressive band of contributors for a collection of eleven songs that not only pay homage to those centuries of influence, but also confirm Kaela s reputation for craft and originality.

Recording traditional material is by no means playing it safe, and it s a brave soul that takes on Robert Burns Now Westlin Winds since Dick Gaughan made it his own. Braver still to open an album with it. With a light as air guitar and fiddle opening, and amid Dave Milligan s beautifully understated piano, Kaela s trembling vocal breathes its way through Burns exquisite poetry towards a moment of sheer magic

Jonah Tolchin – Thousand Mile Night (2016) [Web FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/WEB
Label/Cat#:Yep Roc Records
Country:USA
Year: 5 August 2016
Genre:americana

The cover of Jonah Tolchin s new record, Thousand Mile Night bears some resemblance to the kind of cartoon illustrations that were a regular feature of Michael Hurley s releases in the 1970s as well as illustrations found on later-era Holy Modal Rounders (who joined Hurley on a number of recordings). This may or may not be coincidental, but I ll vote for the latter, because Tolchin s reverence for this material is, like those artists, sincere, yet that doesn t stop him from displaying a sense of playfulness and out and out joy throughout the record. If there is such a thing as reverent irreverence (and there is because of Hurley and the Rounders) then Tolchin has tapped into it here.

There is a grotesque, otherworldliness to this odd and lovely album. Tolchin s sonic road trip barrels through a recognizable America, but challenges anyone to locate any of its points on an actual map. This is a meta-America, a symbol of itself still trying on signifiers to see what fits best. And that s cool. Tolchin is weaving new from old, showing us familiar pictures that overfill their frames and spill out into strange new visions of promise and dread. And, most importantly, the music, from start to finish, is both surprising and inviting.

The album opens with a song that could have been written for the violent and troubling summer just passing. So I call you my friend , he sings, in these tattered clothes / with this troubled mind / to see the beauty in the ugliest of days . Written before the horrible events in Orlando, Florida, Nice, France, and elsewhere, Tolchin s sincere plea in Beauty in the Ugliest of Days is a necessary panacea to the weight of so many media reports that erode our trust in each other and the greater good. I ve found much solace in this powerful song.

Similary, Unless You got Faith calls to mind Lou Reed s Busload of Faith from his successful New York album, but Tolchin s take on this gospel-inflected expression is infectiously upbeat and optimistic, a counterpoint to Reed s dour, defeatist perspective. Where Reed s song serves to condemn the world he describes, Tolchin s point, with his chorus of you can t love in this world / unless you got faith , is to give listeners the strength of will to carry on.

Moving to the darker side, Thousand Mile Night should earn a place among the great honky tonk road songs. Tolchin spins an all-night road trip into a Whitmanesque catalog of gothic Americana, his poetic vision taking in such poetic images as fingers on the wheel like birds on the grapevine , a Mississippi preacher smoking in the backseat , a taillight missing like a gold-tooth bar fight , that collectively elicit the feeling of being drunk on miles spun on black rain . Jamie McFarlane s bass and Michael Joel Bosco s drums chug along in accompaniment like wheels over road-seams while Tolchin s lap steel and Lucas Hamren s electric guitar accentuate the journey with squeals and rattling whirls.

The expressive guitar and effervescent bongo backbeat of Song About Home belie the lyrical portrayal of isolation and displacement. While that song ends with Tolchin temporarily secure in the arms of a lover, Where the Hell are All of My Friends? finds him again adrift, this time in a nightmare journey that evokes Dylan s Jokerman and similar apocalyptic visions. Make some noise, Tolchin cries out, It s the silence that hurts.

Marvin Etzioni, who produced Tolchin s previous record Clover Lane, returns to coproduce with Tolchin. The album was recorded and mixed in the legendary FAME Studio in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in a marathon four-day session. Tolchin arrived with the songs complete and the basic arrangements in his head, but left ample room for session players Hamren, MacFarlane, and Bosco to improvise their parts. The resulting album feels loose and organic, the songs vibrant and alive, free from any over-fussing at the control booth.

On Thousand Mile Night Tolchin builds on the great promise of his critically acclaimed debut Clover Lane. Tolchin is a restless composer and musician who kicks against the limitations of musical labels. File him under Americana, but the moniker is all the more nuanced for the breadth and variety he brings to it. Like Hurley and the Rounders before him, he s driving the genre forward with a respectful eye on the rear view mirror but a right foot heavy on the gas.

Haley Bonar – Impossible Dream (2016) [FLAC]

FLAC/Lossless/cue/log
Label/Cat#: Memphis Industries / MI0403CDP / Promo
Country:USA
Year:Aug 5 2016
Genre:female indie pop/rocker

Tempering folky tweeness with a healthy dose of misanthropy and small quantity of rage, Minnesota-based singer-songwriter Haley Bonar manages to tread the sweet/sour divide with all the effortlessness you d expect from someone seven albums deep into an indie career. Sometimes, however, that ease can feel like conventionality, especially considering her songs never quite cross the borderline into truly arresting territory. Even when she s singing about shitty towns and what sounds like piss in your ice-cream , Bonar is neither as unsettling as Jenny Lewis nor as volatile as Angel Olsen two other crystalline-voiced musicians who have brought genuine edge to indie balladry. That said, Impossible Dream undoubtedly boasts the kind of bright melodies, satisfying hooks and nice turns of phrase that can worm their way into your psyche. Whether Bonar s songs are distinctive enough to leave a mark there, though, is not quite so certain.
