U & U Show 362 | Lots of Folk Folks

Nathaniel Rateliff : Still Trying : Falling Faster Than You Can Run (2013)
-       3rd full length.
-       I got so hung up on Nathaniel’s other project, The Night Sweats, when this album was released I completely missed one of the best folk albums of 2013.
-       Surprise highlight of my recent SF trip.

Anand Wilder & Maxwell Kardon : Wedding Day : Break Line the Musical (2014)
-       Lead single from a star-studded folk musical from members of Yeasayer.
-       The musical also features members of Suckers, Man Man, Kishi Bashi, Vampire Weekend, and Dragon of Zynth.
-       Coming out on Secretly Canadian Records.

Kishi Bashi : Once Upon a Lucid Dream (In Afrikaans): Lighght (2014)
-       2nd full-length.
-       Debut full length. 151a, was out in 2012
-       Multi-instrumentalist that plays with Regina Spektor and of Montreal.
-       Best of SXSW 2014

1, 2, 3 : The Shapes of Wrath : Big Weather (2014)
-       2nd full length. Double LP
-       Raucous Pittsburgh indie rock band.

Mimicking Birds : Spent Winter : Eons (2014)
-       Gorgeous 3rd album.
-       Lush Portland indie folk.
-       SXSW 2014

Wooden Wand : Adie : Farmer’s Corner (2014)
-       James Jackson Toth project's forthcoming album.
-       His last album, Blood Oaths of the New Blues, was a Best of the U & U 2013.
-       His track ‘No Bed For Beatle Wand/Days This Long’ was my favorite song of 2013.

Fucked Up : The Art of Patrons : Glass Boys (2014)
-       4th album
-       David Comes To Life was their hugely critically acclaimed 3rd album out in 2011.
-       Musically like Titus Andronicus or The Hold Steady with a metal band frontman.

The Orwells : Southern Comfort : Disgraceland (2014)
-          Opening track on 2nd album.
-          Raw, raucous, garage rock with one of the most over the top lead singers.
-          SXSW 2014

Pujol : Judas Booth : Kludge (2014)
-       Daniel Pujol’s 2nd album.
-       Product of Jack White’s Third Man Records.

Guided By Voices : All American Boy : Cool Planet (2014)
-       Possibly their 21st album?
-       Easily one of the most prolific bands and song writers, Robert Pollard.

Gum : Misunderstanding : Delorean Highway (2014)
-       Debut album
-       Another Tame Impala/Pond offshoot.
-       Led by Jay Watson here.
-       Download another single from the album via their SouncCloud.

Curtis Harding : Heaven's On The Other Side : Soul Power (2014)
-          Debut full length, Soul Power.
-          Incredibly promising soul singer that’s readying one of the albums I’m most excited for.
-          Played with Cee-Lo and, currently, with members of the Black Lips in a band called Night Sun (also readying a debut EP)

Tobacco : Self Tanner : Ultima II Massage (2014)
-       First single from forthcoming album.
-       Side project of leader of Black Moth Super Rainbow, Tom Vec
-       Very odd brand of electronic, psych and rock.
