We might all be a little preoccupied with the holidays coming up but there’s still some amazing new music getting released in 2018. The latest from Jeff Tweedy and Folly and the Hunter have hit the shelves. We’re keeping it short today and jumping right into the new stuff. Oh yeah, if new stuff isn’t your thing we’ve also loaded up the used browsers here recently and you can check out our “flippin’ video” a little further down this page.
Jeff Tweedy – Warm
“Certain lyrical flowers sprout up with regularity across the ten song-yards that are this record. A son who has lost a father sings to his wife, his sons, that father. There are apologies, and mirror-twins; threats to enemies (‘I’d love to take you down / and leave you there’) and entreaties (‘Let’s go rain again!’) and dreamy challenges (‘I wonder how much freedom we can dream’) and ornery morphings of language that serve a simple function: they make the listener love language again.”
– George Saunders, Liner Notes for Jeff Tweedy’s WARM
Warm is a solo album of all new material, produced and recorded entirely by Jeff at Chicago’s now legendary studio, The Loft (with help from some of his usual collaborators – Spencer Tweedy, Glenn Kotche and Tom Schick). WARM follows the acoustic retrospective release, Together at Last (2017), and Wilco’s 2016 album, Schmilco.
Folly and The Hunter – Remains
Folly and The Hunter is an indie folk band from Montreal. Catchy melodies, multiple harmonies and a subtly crafted mix of instruments blend to create warm and full compositions. Folly and the Hunter bases its sound in the American folk tradition and pulls inspiration from contemporary indie and post-rock trends, resulting in pop songs that carry emotional and artistic depth.
