This month’s mixtape opens with the peerless, beloved Austin-based songwriter Bill Callahan and his hugely anticipated “Shepherd in a Sheepskin Vest” (Drag City), the breathtaking twenty-song opus and follow-up to 2013’s “Dream River”. June’s mix also features: the wonderful Nashville-based composer Eve Maret with her scintillating “No More Running” full length; more beautiful bittersweet folk pop creations from Welsh songwriter and musician Cate Le Bon (from her Mexican Summer-debut ‘Reward’). Other essential 2019 releases include the peerless Irish songwriter Maria Somerville (‘All My People’ remains our favourite of the year); Cork-born and Berlin-based producer ELLLL’s latest ‘Glisten’ EP (released via the Barcelona imprint Paralaxe Editions) and Earthen Sea’s sophomore full-length for the ever-dependable Kranky label.

Dazzling re-issues from Liquid Liquid’s Dennis Young (via Scottish imprint Athens Of The North); Julie Coker’s musical career retrospective showcasing the Nigerian queen of television’s formidable songbook; and Portland, Oregon’s Little Axe compilation of Andean party music from the central sierra of Peru.
