sounds alright, pretty straightforward stuff though
They have drones sometimes
Matt Berry's stuff's really good. Once you get past the idea that a TV comedian with a very recognisable voice is singing earnestly about herbs and rituals, his music is really quite wonderful. Witch Hazel's a good album to start with.
For something more electronic, try Belbury Poly. The track Scarlet Ceremony sets an arcane chant from Blood on Satan's Claw to a compulsive haunted krautrock jam.
Josephine Foster is peerless, and her music is an uncompromising rabbit hole of magick and beauty. Her best album is Hazel Eyes I Will Lead You, her best song is There Are Eyes Above.
Finally, for now, they're not the coolest of bands, but for a compelling blend of rootsy folk and pagan mystery, you really cannot go wrong with The Waterboys. Start with A Pagan Place and This is the Sea, obviously, but their album Dream Harder is, as far as I'm concerned, a flawed and forgotten masterpiece.
Buffy saint marie-magic is alive, god is afoot
weird Finnish folky weirdness. It's call Yhä hämärää
Haven't heard their most recent one. Their debut is the one to shoot for
never heard the geezers though
bit of unironic partridge gaudete appreciation, it'll blow ya socks off
need to listen to it myself rly
julian cope is more rocky/pagan but has folkier moments & demands ur attn
maybe it's time i gave Current 93 another go.... having a Coil phase atm so it seems apt. his voice was so so awful last time i checked them out
is basically one of chris morris' blue jam intros, extended for 22 minutes
if you don't count the gary glitter line
and the contours of the body
What you think Paramore isn't good Folky Pagan inspired stuff because she's a woman?
I think you'll find Paramore share a lot of the same lyrical themes as most of the other bands in this thread and idk armful of bangers m8
Una Baines of the Fall & Blue Orchids made this album of weird "pagan folk" back in 1985. It finally got a reissue on Finders Keepers a year ago.
one was ace, and one was terrible. will check it out though.
Martyn Bates other output as Eyeless in Gaza
Dead Can Dance perhaps?
(James Cargill from Broadcast with various others)
Think a lot of the Folklore Tapes releases would fit the bill. Interesting label
and was brilliant; I recommend her wholeheartedly, and I advertise her presence at the Lexington tonight too
Haunting, skeletal trad folk; most of their songs are about witches.
70s psych folk band, released 1 St album and it's absolutely solid throughout. Pretty much impossible to get hold of but you should be able to dload it
not least because loads of people in the group went off and did music that's also relevant to theme of the thread.
tell me about some side projects pls
Molasses (moody lo-fi folk)
Black Forest/Black Sea (experimental cello/guitar free folk)
