The second album from Oxfordshire-based singer-songwriter Megan Henwood is going to cause problems for anyone who likes their new music to fit into neat little boxes. Henwood has worked on the album with her brother, Joe, with whom she won the BBC's Young Folk Award in 2009, but while Head, Heart, Hand taps in to various long-standing musical traditions, it's not a record you can simply label as "folk". The painstakingly crafted songs recall soul, blues and pop styles, while the careful and precise production is the result of the Henwoods' collaboration with producer Tom Excell, whose background is in electronic music.

In 2010, Virginia native Jonathan Russell and California transplant Josiah Johnson formed the core songwriting partnership of The Head and The Heart in their new hometown of Seattle. The band was quickly rounded out with the addition of drummer Tyler Williams, keyboardist Kenny Hensley, vocalist/violinist Charity Rose Thielen and bassist Chris Zasche. Their 2011 debut album on Sub Pop became one of the label s best-selling debut releases to date. In a few short months The Head and The Heart went from playing open mic nights to selling out San Francisco s Fillmore, Seattle s Paramount Theatre, New York s Terminal 5 and more, building a loyal fan base across the country.

The albums combines the best tracks from two previous albums, Legacy…Hymns & Faith and Rock of Ages…Hymns & Faith, and adds two new tracks produced by Grant's husband, Vince Gill. Grant said of the new album "Hymns were so much a part of my childhood. We sang hymns like people sing the national anthem before a ballgame; it was hymns before everything. We sang hymns in our homes, in our church three times a week – there would be some Sunday nights where all we did was sing hymns. These songs are for people who grew up with the hymn tradition – to remind them how inspiring they are."

Alela Diane - To Be Still

Genre: Folk

‘To Be Still’ is the follow up to Alela Diane Menig’s critically acclaimed debut ‘The Pirate’s Gospel.’ ‘To Be Still’ utilizes a fuller sonic palette in creating the world that Menig’s characters inhabit. Although there is more instrumentation on this album, the highlight is still Menig’s voice. Menig is quite capable of going from a husky growl to a delicate mew for emphasis that recalls both Karen Dalton and Joanna Newsome.
The music on ‘To Be Still’ was created between 2007 & 2008 and recorded at her father’s home studio in Nevada City, California. The recording process for Alela Diane was a rather low key and family oriented affair. Her father played on the album with several of their shared musician friends. Family friend and visionary singer Michael Hurley guests on “Age Old Blues.” The album opens casually with a high and lonesome pedal steel on “Dry Grass & Shadows” that sets the weary and ghostly tone throughout the album.
Most of these songs feel like they could have been written 100 years ago, which is an impressive feat for a songwriter so young. “White As Diamonds” and “Age Old Blues” are both spare and mournful. In their simplicity, these songs sound as if they were taken from the Appalachian Mountains. The title track is a calming listen as it yearns for simpler times. As the album progresses, the music and theme becomes heavier both in theme and accompaniment. The moodier side of Alela Diane is evident most notably on “My Brambles” and “The Ocean.” “Every Path” seems to be the spectral cousin of “To Be Still” as both songs echo the theme of returning to a loved one.
‘To Be Still’ is a satisfying listen throughout. It is apparent that each of these songs has been crafted and each benefits from the fuller production. Alela Diane also sounds more assured and confident of her musical direction. “To Be Still” is available February 17 on Rough Trade Records.

Mortal Heart (His Fair Assassin Trilogy)

If you aren't familiar with the Fair Assassin Trilogy, this third and last book will make you want to read the first two. Though it helps to have read the other novels in the series, if you've skipped one of the books, Mortal Heart will still be a wonderfully satisfying read. But if you can read the books in order, do so. They build on each other. I'd read the first book, missed the second and stayed up all night reading Mortal Heart. Then I reread the parts I particularly loved.
