Elephant Micah: Where in Our Woods

Another inward-looking, yet inviting collection from Joseph O'Connell’s idiosyncratic DIY project Elephant Micah. Fans of introspective, late-night lo-fi should seek this out.

Robert Lester Folsom: Music and Dreams and Robert Lester Folsom: Ode to a Rainy Day

A cherished self-released slice of 1970’s mellow gold gets a welcome digital reissue. It's accompanied by a second, previously unavailable set of formative home recordings certain to satisfy excavators of that decade’s lost sounds.

Various Artists: When I Reach That Heavenly Shore: Unearthly Black Gospel, 1926-1936

Tompkins Square’s third major anthology of African-American gospel draws from the genre's earliest recorded sources to offer listeners evocative echoes of the nineteenth century.

Chris Hickey: Love Away

Intimations of mortality echo throughout this fifth solo release from the contemplative Los Angeles singer-songwriter, formerly of Uma and Show of Hands.

Micah P. Hinson: Micah P. Hinson and the Gospel of Progress

This record shuns cynicism. It is, rather, an honest, romantic exploration of heartbreak wherein, despite his many accompanists, Hinson lies exposed and raw.
