    Sam Amidon’s self-titled album is out digitally and on CD today, with the vinyl due January 22.

No Depression says "this LP, full of delicate noise and artful sophistication, deserves a pause in a harried time." A video of the album track "Cuckoo," recorded live in concert at Kings Place in London earlier this month, can be seen here.
