Lonesome Leash (aka Walt McClements, a touring member and collaborator of Dark Dark Dark, and also a member of punk orchestra Why Are We Building Such a Big Ship? and New Orleans' Panorama Jazz Band) is releasing his debut album, I am No Captain, on January 1. It's a freaky, folky album that should appeal to people who like their Decemberists/Mountain Goats cut with a little Gypsy flavor." Listen now on Brooklyn Vegan.

Lonesome Leash's new track "Ghosts" is making RCRD LBL reevaluate their feelings about the accordian!
Lonesome Leash, a project from Walt McClements, is making me reevaluate a bit, though. "Ghosts" uses the instrument for loveable drone purposes – closer to a pump organ – and adds guttural drums and a defiant vocal intensity that reminds me of Future Islands. Check for more on I Am No Captain, which is out January 1, 2013." Listen now on RCRD LBL.
The track was shot at the aforementioned Old Vinyl Factory in Hayes, which was once Britain's biggest pressing plant, and artists who swing by are encouraged to cover a classic track that was (probably) pressed on the premises. Watch now on Q The Music!

Little Wings aka Kyle Field is a master of the fragile song. His voice exists in a perpetual breaking point, at once a weighty baritone and a barely there sigh. It’s maybe something that grows on you instead of immediately hitting you in the face with its greatness." Listen now on The Fader.

Shy Pursuit and next year’s Cool Cocoon LP." Listen now on Self-Titled!
Renny Wilson—who probably spends a lot of time listening to yacht rock and old disco—has created a song that sits comfortably up there with Studio’s woefully small catalog. It’s lush and pretty, and more importantly: soft. Not in a bad way, though. It’s more that it feels blurred at the edges, existing in a constant half-sleep state of near bliss."

“I guess what I’m trying to do is avoid folk,” Kelly says. “I’m not just some dude playing a guitar.” Much like America, “Parachutes of Plenty,” is a tapestry of different styles. Yes it’s guitar heavy, but it’s also epic, free-roaming gloom-pop." Keep on reading over on Music on the Goe!

Ash Reiter represents a subset of independent artists who still hold the art form of the album in high regard. With her second full length album, Hola, Reiter has not only gone the distance to advance her music and perfect the production of her songs, she has also made great strides in the art of crafting a cohesive album."
