We’ve already posted a couple of tracks from Joseph Childress’ new self-titled record, and Leaving The Barren Ground is the latest, and final, song to be shared from it ahead of its official release on the 6th October.
It is another really fine example of his organic songwriting and pithy Americana with just the right amount of gentle twang. It is easy to how the comparisons to such luminaries as Townes Van Zandt and Dylan have arisen.

On the evidence of Recording 15 (below) and the previously postedThe Moons Detriment, we are greatly looking forward to Shannon Lay’s new long player Living Water (out as the inaugural release on Kevin Morby’s new Mare Records imprint).
It is a sweetly plucked folky campfire love song. Gorgeous.

Born from the ashes of Leeds noiseniks Stilts, Black Pudding are a punked-up, garage rock band with a twisted sense of humour.
Check out the lead track from new double A side single – Sci-fi Si/Tillagio via Loner Noise records. There is a touch of the Ty Segall/Thee Oh Sees thickness to their riffs, some of The Wytches’ foreboding gloom and a (un)healthy dose of The Cramps’ campy weirdness.

The debut album from Portland witch-folk duo Lenore. is out now.
The album has a lush sound that contrasts with the stark intimacy of the lyrics, and the open-gazed sense of place that comes from the beautiful sweeping vistas of the Pacific Northwest. But really the core of the sound is their beautiful voices intertwining in harmony – have a listen to Ether’s Arms below.
