If you’re going to buy from Bandcamp…

…buy today. I’ve released my ‘thou shalt not buy anything non-essential’ shackles just enough to buy the Haress album.

Bandcamp is foregoing their usual cut to help artists, see.

I will shortly be working from home, which does have some positives. The one big one is that I can catch up on some of the almost infinite amount of music out there that is really worth listening to, which is more than I can imagine.

I could invite you to go through my post history for some wonderful music, and indeed you have that option. But, you know what? Use serendipity. Find something by just looking round. And tell me what it is; I might even get a chance to listen to it.

Be not afraid, and look out for each other. Compassion should be your go-to state of being. We’ve got this.

 

 

Meadowsilver (self titled)

A younger me would probably have reacted with disbelief at the thought that folky music would end up comprising so many very favourite releases as my life went on, although hopefully said younger self would have had the sense to imagine the gradual opening of the mind, both musical and otherwise (well, the one usually insists on the other following it).

So Meadowsilver join with Espers, Horse Cult, Laughing Eye Weeping Eye, Haress, The Iditarod, etc in making really good folk inspired hypnosis. I like being in a trance.

It may be that they or some of them used to be The Hare and The Moon, not an artist I was previously familiar with so I’ll probably hunt and listen at some point.
