Take multi-instrumentalist Michael J. York (Coil, The Utopia Strong) and the incredible vocal talents of Katherine Blake (Mediaeval Baebes), and the end result is something totally out of this world – folklore and mysticism, early Arabian and Mediaeval music, first millennia Eastern poetry blended together with Poe, Scott and Chesterton. The result is an ethereal …

Tania Bowers, operating under the nom de plume T. Wilds, has just released the album ‘Ten Songs’: a deceptively simple and unadorned collection of the sweetest sounds imaginable.

Emanating with …

We are proud to premiere the new single from Melbourne artist Anna Smyrk. ‘The Excavator’ is a folk-tinged indie rock anthem that starts off with a slow burning fuse before sparking into an intense and dynamic anthem. The thundering, pounding rhythm section provides a beating pulse while Smyrk’s voice is passionate and delicate as she …

Once we heard ‘When I Fall’, the recent single from Berlin based Robert Laupert, a small signal of hope written in a difficult period in his life, and wrapped up in this country folk exterior, we knew we needed to take notice of what he had to say, and find a little more out about …
