Artist: FEATHERS
Title: s/t
Format: CD
Label: Gnomonsong
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"FEATHERS are an eight-piece collective musical ensemble, currently based between Northampton, Massachusetts and Brattleboro, Vermont. Formed in 2003, the band features five primary songwriters, each with a unique style, and four singers. All eight musicians switch around on numerous instruments, loosely playing what can be described as psychedelic folk. Their debut album, now issued on CD for the first time via Gnomonsong, features simple strummed guitars, delightfully sweet harmonies, lysergic electric guitar, and tribal drumming, with a swirly folk vibe throughout. The group seems to draw inspiration from the same magical, natural forest elements that motivated Incredible String Band and Comus to release their own classic music in decades past. Yes, songs about forest creatures and loving the moon are contained herein." - Gnomonsong.

Artist: HURLEY, MICHAEL
Title: Ancetral Swamp
Format: LP
Label: Gnomonsong
Country: USA
Price: $20.00
2016 repress. "Ancestral Swamp is the 20th full-length album by legendary rambler, cartoonist, outsider folk singer, and guitarist Michael Hurley. It arrives just in the nick of time for the rabid Snockophile. A batch of new vittles and encores of some of his classic tunes, Ancestral Swamp bubbles with laid-back ease and tre-molodic goodness. Most songs have the simplest of arrangements: Hurley singing solo, accompanied by his guitar, Wurlizter organ, or fiddle. Tara Jane ONeil helps lend a nice touch to El Dorado, and Snock calls upon frequent past accomplices Dave Reisch and Louie Longmeyer for their graceful touch on sleepy winners like New River Blues and Gamblin Charlie. As with all Hurleys albums, once one sets the needle down, one is put in a certain peace and place. His voice and songs are unique, shuffling with characters and visions clear and wild. With Ancestral Swamp, it seems Snock has left his front door open a bit wider than usual. If you lean in close, you can inhale a little of the vapor rising off the water, and enjoy a tale or two." - Gnomonsong.

Artist: HURLEY, MICHAEL
Title: Ida Con Snock
Format: LP
Label: Gnomonsong
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Michael Hurley is one of the last remaining ramblin American folk troubadours. Hobo-ing around the country, making music since the days Bob Dylan first set foot in New York Citys Gaslight club, Hurley recorded his first album for Moses Ashs legendary Folkways label in 1964 and continued to release albums for both Warner Brothers and Rounder. His mid-70s Have Moicy album was among the top ten for the decade selected by Rolling Stone magazine. While many of his contemporaries are long past their prime (or deceased), Hurleys muse is still intact. Hurleys songwriting talent hasnt gone unnoticed by a new generation of musicians. In recent years, he was invited to tour with alt-country heroes Son Volt and Lucinda Williams. Hes also shared bills with Smog and Palace Brothers, played with the Giant Sand rhythm section, and has of course appeared with (and been covered by) Vetiver and appeared on their records. His songs have also been covered by indie stars Cat Power and Yo La Tengo, among others. So, the matter at hand, a new album of recordings sung and played by Hurley, backed by Ida, appropriately titled Ida Con Snock: Snock himself marvels at this 21st studio album, recorded at Levon Helms studio in Woodstock, NY. Idas less-is-more finesse shines on these rich recordings, melding perfectly with Hurleys playing and singing. Many of these songs are already well familiar to Hurleys devotees. There are seven originals and five loving covers of 50s rock n roll, C&W, and vintage folk, each tune capturing Hurley and band at peak performance levels." -Gnomonsong
