The Irish guitarist Cian Nugent has released the first full-length “Born with the Caul” with his band The Cosmos, via No Quarter Records.

“Cian Nugent is a guitar player and composer from Dublin, Ireland who combines personal passions, such as suburban/coastal blues, traditional musics, late 1960s & ’70s singer-songwriters, jazz ambitions, 20th century composition and the Takoma school into a deeply personal style. His music boasts an orchestrated and fully instrumented sound that is playful and eerie at the same time.”

James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg – The Queue Outside The Night Ministry


James Elkington & Nathan Salsburg: Believer Field by Nathan Salsburg
From “Avos,” released on Tompkins Square in August, 2011. Recorded and mixed by Jonathan Schenke at Soungs, Chicago; mastered by Blaise Barton, Scientific Mastering, Chicago.


James Elkington moved from London to Chicago around the turn of the millennium and has since released a string of albums as leader of The Zincs for Thrill Jockey Records. After dissolving the band in 2008, Elkington has concentrated on acoustic, folk-tinged music with his band The Horse’s Ha (that he shares with Freakwater’s Janet Bean), culminating in the release of their debut album, “Of The Cathmawr Yards” in 2009. He is also the owner/operator of a clunky solo career, and moonlights convincingly as the guitar player in Jon Langford’s (of The Mekons) Skull Orchard.


Nathan Salsburg – Sought & Hidden

Back Home In Bogenbrook by Nathan Salsburg
From “Affirmed,” forthcoming on the No Quarter label, November 15, 2011. Recorded in Louisville, Kentucky, at the Funeral Home by Kevin Ratterman; mixed and mastered by Blaise Barton at Scientific Mastering in Chicago.

Nathan Salsburg was born in that Diamond City, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania—she of anthracite glimmer and Babe Ruth’s 1926 long ball—and is a longtime resident of Louisville, Kentucky. He is a folklorist and a producer and presenter of traditional music for East Village Radio, the Drag City imprint Twos & Fews, and the Alan Lomax Archive, among other outlets. His first solo record is called Affirmed, and it’s about race horses—Affirmed, Bold Ruler, and Eight Belles, specifically—and desire and reckonings of the spirit. It’s an almost entirely instrumental affair, save his elegiac rendering of the traditional tune “The False True Love.”

—An excerpt from M.C. Taylor’s notes for “Affirmed”

Old Calf – Taken

Ned Oldham – The One Light


‘Taken’ is taken from Old Calf‘s debut full length “Borrow House,” available on No Quarter Records (Released: April 12th, 2011).  ‘The One Light’ is taken from the first solo release by Ned Oldham, 3 song EP “Let’s Go Out Tonight” on Gold Robot Records (Released: September 7th, 2010).

Old Calf formed as a duo in the small, but musically vibrant town of Charlottesville, VA by Ned Oldham (The Anomoanon, Palace Music) and accordionist Marty Metcalfe, slowly accruing members on route to recording their debut album. Michael Clem (bass, mandola, dead-on harmonies) and Brian Caputo (percussion) round out the group of Southern gentlemen, who tightened up their sound rehearsing in Ned’s garage, and performing around town on weekend nights.
