Beauty. That’s all to say about this latest from Ulvesang. Found this band a year ago, bought their debut and fell in love. This newest one came yesterday and.. there’s love n the air, once again. Loving the atmosphere on these albums, acoustic so-called neo-folk giving me chills. Listening this album takes me to some distant, yet familiar place. This beauty is limited to 200 copies on purple vinyl and 300 copies on black. Still available from Nordvis and I […]
Actually this came already weeks ago, just haven’t had time to get more familiar with this album but now I’m working for it. Really love their previous album, Come To Thaw, and as this new one is now playing on my headphones I think that I have to share that love between these two albums. This is some kind of mixture of doomed neofolk with some post rock in it but the mostly, this is music filled with sadness.. Great album from […]
It’s acoustic, it’s (neo)folk and I still love these tunes. Once again one of those artists I have never heard before. This one I found via Throne Records, listened few tunes and I just had to purchase the album. I’m not that familiar with this genre but that does not prevent me to listen music like this. Either you like this record or you don’t, that’s just how it is. Bought my copy from Throne Records, green colored is limited to […]
Hmm.. actually I did not expected to hear these kind of soundwaves when I purchased this album. Lat time I listened this band they were playing some kind of mixture of droned blackened ambient or something. This time almost all those elements have been replaced with something more like experimental, coldwave, psychedelic, neofolk flavored ambient (hard to say). The most important thing is that I like these sounds. This is limited to 350 copies and available for example from the […]
Today I managed to purchase two albums from my so-called ‘wantlist’. Kevättuulisormi (Springwindfinger.. or something in English) from Pyhä Kuolema released by Svart & Pesanta Urfolk (one of my favorite record labels). This is folk music, or more like some darkened neo-folk. Lyrics are in Finnish so it might be little hard to understand what Mikko Pöyhönen here is trying to say but I can say that these are not songs of joy nor happiness. This blue vinyl (european) version […]
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 […]
Little easier music for the soul, comforting and warm tunes. Even though there are some religious nuances on this record, I do not mind. Most of those black metal bands are singing about devil etc. so it’s same thing reversed, if you believe in devil, then you obviously believe in some kind of god. Anyways, let’s forget those religious aspects. For me this is as the title says “Wintersongs”, soundtrack for these snow-covered days. This one is released first time […]
Hmm.. I nearly missed this one.. Beautiful record, it just took me little time to realize how gorgeous this is. Once again music for your headphones. Breathtaking beauty and nearly missed this.. huh. Limited to 350 copies. I bought my copy from Discogs (Angel-Records) and delivery took only one day (nearly 2500 km) plus customer service is exceptionally awesome. Very happy with this one. Recommended, both Rauelsson and Angel-Records.
And this one I found from Bandcamp (once again). Some kind of experimental neofolk, actually I do not care that much about genres. This sounds good to my ear and that’s all I need. This is limited to 300 copies on translucent red vinyl. Available from Tamed Records.
This is new to me. Gultskra Artiklers album Abtu/anet and released by Miasmah. Very abstract recording and needs to be listened with headphones, or I think so. This is limited to 300 copies and first 100 copies are pressed on blue vinyl. I recommend this one with all my heart. Available from Sonic Pieces.
Last but not least, this also came today. Beautiful record, calm and quiet in. There are moments in life when you need records just like this one (nearly every moment..). Transparent grey version of this album (limited to 125 copies) is sold out from the label but you can purchase black one from The Flenser.
521 copies pressed. This is dark and melancholic album. Somehow this album fits to these dark and rainy late autumn/early winter nights.. gloomy.. It seems that this record is hard to find these days. If you really want this you should buy it from Discogs..
