It’s another wallet-buster of week for new releases, particularly if you’re a fan of the indie folk and roots based music. There are reissues out from legendary folkers Pentangle and Karen Dalton and a whole bunch of new releases from artists either considered “new indie folk” or at least influenced by them, like Devendra Banhart, Iron & Wine, Cave Singers, Sir Richard Bishop, Jose Gonzalez, Loney, Dear, Tuung, and Two Gallants.

Iron & Wine – Innocent Bones (MP3)

Cave Singers – Seeds Of Night (MP3)

Devendra Banhart – Carmensita (MP3)

Two Gallants – The Hand That Held Me Down (MP3)

Sir Richard Bishop – Cemetery Games (MP3)

Tunng – Bullets

Two of Sweden’s most recent exports, Jose Gonzalez and Loney, Dear, have new releases this week also. Gonzalez’ In Our Nature is officially new, while Loney, Dear breaks Sologne, originally self-released in 2006, to the States. Although these two songs don’t appear on the albums, they’re worthwhile for new and old listeners

Jose Gonzalez – Love Will Tear Us Apart (MP3)

Loney, Dear – The City The Airport [CSS remix] (MP3)

Veteran blues singer Bettye Lavette and country outlaw Steve Earle also let loose worthy new albums.

Bettye Lavette – Talking Old Soldiers (MP3)

Steve Earle – City of Immigrants (live on Letterman)

If you’re more in the mood for good ol’ fashion indie rock, you got that too from Athlete, Sea Wolf, The Weakerthans, Stars, and many others. Here are a few samples to inspire you to roll out the dough:

Athlete – Airport Disco (MP3)

Damon and Naomi – Cruel Queen (MP3)

Georgie James – Cake Parade (MP3)

The GoStation – All Together Now (MP3)

Office – The Big Bang Jump (MP3)

Mum – They Made Frogs Smoke ‘Til They Exploded (MP3)

The Weakerthans – Sun in an Empty Room (MP3)

Stars – The Night Stars Here (MP3)

Tiny Masters of Today – Stickin It To The Man (MP3)

Sea Wolf – Black Dirt (MP3)

Eskimo Joe – New York (MP3)

Shocking Pinks – I Want U Back (MP3)

Poison Control Center – Glory Us (MP3)

Check out a complete list from Largehearted Boy. Thanks to Spinner, Pitchfork, and the many labels and distributors with enough smarts to make sample MP3s available.
