In reply to Sam Mayfield: King Creosote and Jon Hopkins - Diamond Mine .

My daughter bought me a few CDS I hadn't heard of for my birthday, the above may be worth a listen I reckons. I'm 47, love old Bowie and have lost the plot in Ibiza more than a few times.

Try any (or indeed all) of Bat For Lashes albums as 'your starter for ten' :-)

I think you need a Laura odyssey on Spotify:

Laura Cantrell
Laura Veirs
Laura Marling
Blue Roses (essentially Laura Groves and whoever is on hand for a recording or a gig)
I'd like to say Laura Nyro but I'm not familiar enough with her works.

Stephanie Dosen
Neil Diamond's "12 Songs" and "Home After Dark" albums

In reply to Sam Mayfield: In the Celtic/folkish vein, try The Book of Invasions by Horslips. Unfashionably good stuff. In the female artist vein, try Thea Gilmore; very prolific so quality not always consistent but excellent at her best. Start with Avalanche, Recorded Delivery or Murphy's Heart. For some 'wtf?' tunes, look up Caravan Palace. For top class modern acoustic music try Spiro's Kaleidophonica. And for excellent Scottish acoustic music, look up A Whisky Kiss by Shooglenifty.

That'll keep you busy for a while!

Treat The Unthanks and Show of Hands with extreme caution (or disdain :-) )

I think The Decemberists' album "Picaresque" might be enjoyable to you.

In reply to Sam Mayfield: Try The Lumineers, very chilled.

In reply to Sam Mayfield: Oysterband/ June Tabor Ragged Kingdom is really very good indeed. It's won awards 'n' everything. Probably won't have the Blue Straggler Hipster seal of approval, though.

Ignor BS re Show of Hands - I reckon they'll be right up your street. And of course them and Seth Lakeman ARE from up your street, or Devon at least.

You might also like Chris Wood - try Handmade Life, though Trespasser is also good

If you haven't already, get some Nick Drake

Rumer, Ben Howard, Fleet Foxes, Michael Kiwanuka.

Anybody but Mumford & Sons...

In reply to Sam Mayfield:

Seconding some suggestions already made.

Bat for Lashes - All three of her albums are sublime. Saw her live in Inverness a couple of weeks ago, might be just a little bit besotted with her! I reviewed her too :-) http://invernessgigs.co.uk/2012/10/19/bat-for-lashes-takes-control/

Julie Fowlis, can't really go wrong with any of her albums.

Newton Faulkner.

Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_e8RRTT0r8 (Americana type stuff)

First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gekHV9DIjHc (They sound like they're from the US but are actually Scandinavian)

Speyside Sessions - project by yon bloke from Grays Anatomy, proceeds go to Save the Children http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1JiSONS9k8

In reply to Sam Mayfield:

I'll add to the votes for First Aid Kit. A lot better than some of this painfully faux-earnest energetic Brit-folk like Bellowhead :-)

Try

Alt - J An Awesome Wave

Not everybody's cup of tea but I loves it

I recommended two Neil Diamond albums and have been enjoying listening to The Mavericks in the car for well over a week. How is that elitist?!
