I liked Ripaille a lot -- haven't heard that album in quite a few years.

As for Catherine Ribeiro, I classify the music as Progressive Acid Folk (aka Psyche Folk) so would have it in Folk, but I guess, say, Paix is more rock then her earlier ones (but that is still folky, so I don't know). I do not know the later albums. I don't remember the cases now, but there has been more than one Acid Folk act in Psyche that I would sooner have put in Folk as a Progressive Acid Folk act but was placed in Psych as I recall. Don't know why the move was made.

Such a shame we don't have multi-genre album tagging.

Edit: By the way, one of my favourites.

Many of my favorites have already been mentioned ......but for moody atmospheric psychy folk try  ''Espers'.
I think someone mentioned 'Circulus' also.

One of my favorite discovers of the last few years has been the Polish band ATMAN.

Erica Pomerance's "You Used To Think" is a pretty cool early freaky folky album as well. Sitting somewhere between Jefferson Airplane and Linda Perhacs. Not as freaky as i'd like but pretty cool for its time :)

I will check out all of those mentioned: that Erica is quite something and I;m loving that Nico album. The only Nico one I have is The Velvet Underground & Nico. Some like Fuschia and Fresh Maggots I've heard music from before but don't yet own album by. Awesome suggestions.

I'm going to try to remember the name of a Jesus freak folk album.

Another early one that I really like (Mary-Anne):



And a pleasant modern one by The Dry Spells: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7S3xE9dJbos

Edit: Changed my Dry Spells one to a url, since I don't find it as transcendent or highlight-worthy as the Mary-Anne one, which I would rather be the focus of my picks for this post.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Neutral Milk Hotel....

Buffy Saint-Marie's Illuminations was some really good experimental folk for its day. Maybe not psychedelic enough, it certainly was a pioneering album in mixing electronica to folk

More good suggestions.

Noticed that I neglected to mention one of my particular favourites in my OP (was recommended to me at this site quite a few years ago) -- Extradition's Hush.

This was completely new to me but I just checked it out on Youtube after seeing your review - I like it quite a bit. Thanks for the tip.

Staying in France, but with a Breton folk-rock vibe, I'm also a fan of the Dan ar Braz album Douar Nevez. Another record with a consistent vibe.

Secret Path by Gord Downie. No really! Sort of... ambient folk? I'm having trouble explaining why I recommend it but I do recommend it. Also thankful I don't have to explain who he is.

In the last year or so I have really got into Welsh band from the 90s-early 2000s, Gorky's Zygotic Mynci.

They put out 9 albums from 1992-2003 and then disbanded. Extremely eclectic; very folk acid tinged at times with a pop sensibility. But they were very , very eclectic...sort of Syd Barrett type acid-freak but then again not...it's hard to explain!

Euros Childs was their front man and IMHO is a genius. I am slowing buying his solo output...he's extremely good IMHO. But I love Gorky's and Childs' folk leaning tracks.....Childs is a big Richard Thompson appreciator. So you can definitely get RT's vibe in certain songs especially his solo stuff. But it's so varied it's mind boggling. Gorky's and Childs are both worth a listen.

Here's 2 from Gorky's and one from Childs. The first, Lladd Eich Gwraig, sung in Welsh is from 1992, the next Meirion Wyllt, which is mainly an instrumental from 1997 and the last by Childs, Farm-Hand Murder is from 2008. Have a listen!

^ Really like Gorky's; got hear of them through Super Furry Animals, Gorwel Owen who produced and played keyboards on some the early SFA stuff also worked with GZM. I saw them at a tiny free festival in mid Wales in 1996 and they were great, a little shambolic in places but very charming and very influenced by Kevin Ayres!

Gruff Rhys' solo lps are very much in a similar vein, particularly 'Candylion'.. also worth watching are the documentary films by Gruff Rhys 'Separado' and 'American interior'. 

The two compilation lps 'Welsh Rarebit vols 1 & 2' which are compilations of Welsh language psych, folk and proto-prog from the Welsh 1970 label 'Sain' partly curated by Gruff Rhys.. which then brings me to Meic Stevens, the 'Welsh Bob Dylan' who was a good mate of Syd Barrett..
