Mirel Wagner: When The Cellar Children See The Light Of Day LP (white, losers edition + 7″)

wagner02

Yes, it’s here. The second album from Mirel Wagner and this time released by SubPop. Debut was released by Svart Records / Bone Voyage Recording Company few years ago and that one is still on my wantlist. About this record, fragile and dark, very dark little tales accompanied mostly with acoustic guitar. Somehow her stories reminds me of another Finnish artist, Joose Keskitalo (they have this split seven-inch released few years ago) and they both have this strange way to see this world around us. This is SubPop’s loser edition on white vinyl and no information about limitation and seems that it’s sold out now. But don’t worry, you can still purchase that regular one from SubPop’s webstore or any good record store around the globe. Recommended one.

And I really love these awesome mailers SubPop is using.

I put here some official videos from both of her albums, just that you understand how good these albums are (oh, and I must add also some track from Joose Keskitalo’s discography).

And some dark one from Joose Keskitalo. He’s singing about five beautiful girls and how he’s putting together one from the pieces of these five other.. creepy

“…The remaining three I buried in the churchyard with my both hands but I rescued the breasts, legs, and one pair of gentle face…”

Blood And Sun: White Storms Fall LP + CD (red with gold haze)

blood and sun02

And this quality release came today from Pesanta Urfolk. Awesome neofolk/dark folk album by Blood And Sun. Some may say that Pesanta’s releases are expensive but hey, considering the quality I can assure that these albums are worth every penny. Beautiful  heavyweight textured and foilprinted gatefold, a stapled-in art/lyric book (art by Luke HIllestad) plus CD version of the album. What else can you ask? Dark and beautiful album and I’m more than happy that I received this limited colored version. I do not know anything about limitation of this album but there are still black copies available from Pesanta Urfolk. Quality release once again from Pesanta. Recommended release indeed.

King Dude: Fear LP (red/white)

kindude

I’m really happy that I managed to grab this one. I missed this album totally when this came for pre-order. I was little disappointed and thought that I have to  purchase this EU version from Ván Records. Suddenly, on the release date these limited color versions were available again from Not Just Religious Music (seems that they kept few copies stored for release date). And about the album itself, it’s dark. Album filled with dark stories and miserable tunes ,I like this kind of music a lot. This is my second full length from this artist and someway or another I have to collect every single release of these darkened nightmares. Limited to 100 copies on red/white (sold out), 200 copies on red, 200 on white and 500 copies on black vinyl, available from Not Just Religious Music. And of course there are clear copies (limitation unknown) available from Ván Records. Awesome trip trough darkness and beyond!
