With a venue as beautifully prestigious as the London Palladium, it seemed only fitting to showcase such an array of heavenly talent. Dalas Green of Alexisonfire fame takes the headline slot in the form of his vunerable folk inspired solo project City and Colour (10) accompanied by the stunningly talented Bess Atwell (8).

Offering a gentle lull of country-tinged acoustics, Atwell’s presence is almost ghostly; so gentle and...

Everyone’s favourite folk singer Beans on Toast is back with an impressive 11th studio album. The LP has been named The Inevitable Train Wreck and behind the sunny-sounding music are some brutally honest lyrics that prompt feelings of panic at the state of our planet.

Everyone’s favourite folk-punks, Skinny Lister’s new album, The Story Is…, is catchy and upbeat. But of course, you’d expect nothing less from them. Dotted throughout are small moments of brilliance. Their signature tongue-in-cheek humour and rip-roaring folk style prevail here, making their fourth album one of their best yet.

The Story Is… highlights the lyrical ability of the six-piece. ‘Second Amendment’ opens the album and immediately draws yo...

After last year’s sudden rebranding from Wolfe Sunday and a label change to DIY outfit Not My Dog Records, Laurence Crow is back with his Imaginary Band with a new album for 2019. A concept album regarding mental health issues, it’s a charity release with all profits going towards CALM and other mental health charities. A reverb-heavy introduction gives way to the same stripped back acoustic-punk guitar sound that Crow has made himself a name for...

Iterum Nata bring us their impressive sophomore album The Course of Empire. The band, hailing from Tampere, Finland, are a psychedelic occult Folk Rock outfit, masterminded by Jesse Heikkinen. Their eponymous debut release in 2017 saw the forging of multiple styles: ritualistic chanting, eerie flutes and celeste, Latin-sounding strummed guitars; dreamy, spacey, layered synth melodies, gently crooning Lennon-esque vocals and even a couple of agrar...

On a wet London afternoon before their sold out show at Islington’s Union Chapel, Simon sat down with Steve Knightley and Phil Beer of British folk rock titans Show of Hands to discuss their current tour, plans for the coming year, and the future of the English folk scene…

So how’s the tour going so far?

Phil: Pretty well really, I suppose we’re coming up to a quarter of the way through at the moment.

Halifax, yeah, generally speaking very well. I k...
