Some heavy hitters have released details of new material this week, causing much anticipation at Listening Through The Lens

The Jayhawks, Mike Farris, Kinky Friedman, Robbie Fulks and Linda Gail Lewis, Shooter Jennings, Rodney Crowell and Cody Jinks!  

Other highlights this week are the arrival of 10 String Symphony‘s excellent Generation Frustration (via The Press House)and Ben Mastwyk’s well-crafted Winning Streak (via Footstomp Music) has just started to get some traction in the CD player as well.  Other newbies just added to our list are Israel Nash, Kendl Winter, Lauren Balthrop, Wild Moccasins.

The updated list shows albums recently made available and those in the pipeline, now stretching to September 2018 – album cover, artist, title and release date, with the last category in chronological order for your viewing ease.  Where we have written more detail about a particular collection or have reviewed it prior to, or after, its public issue, you can click on the album title and you will be magically transported to the relevant article.

If you click on just about every album cover, you will go the Amazon purchase page – in case that is your preferred method of acquisition – you will also find more details there as well.

Some album covers have not been made available yet.  We’ll keep on checking back and including them as soon as we can.

Listings should roughly fall into the roots music category (as widely defined as you like) and only full collections – we do not want to clog up this space with EPs and singles.

With each update we include a header and feature image from our own Jim Jacob.  The picture may have something to do with the new material, or just chosen at random.  In the latter case, they will be mostly ones we haven’t used before from our extensive live music image archive.  This week on the header is particularly relevant – Robbie Fulks with Shad Cobb were captured at The Caravan Music Club, Melbourne Australia.   The featured image is Brian Ritchie from The Violent Femmes.
