    ENGEL, CLARA -- "Secret Beasts" -- CD -- €10
    2015 Opa Loka Records, Ol15004
    Indie / Folk Noir. Based in Toronto, Canada, Clara Engel is an independent, multi-faceted artist and musician. She has independently recorded and released eleven albums, and has collaborated with musicians and artists from the UK, Germany, Brazil, Canada, Turkey, Iran, and the US. Engel's music has been played on Italian National Radio, as well as BBC Radio 2, making it onto Tom Robinson's show "BBC Introducing" on several occasions. Her music has been described as "folk noir," "minimalist holy blues from another galaxy," and "sung poetry." Her voice and guitar stylings place her singularly on the genre-map, somewhere between avant-garde torch singer and gothic-blues artist. Her influences span genres and media, amongst them are Vasko Popa, Virginia Woolf, Theodore Roethke, Jim Jarmusch, Arvo Part, Meredith Monk, Robert Johnson, Gillian Welch, and Jacques Brel.

    KRAFT -- "Harvest Of Despair" -- CD -- €10
    2017 Opa Loka Records, OL1704
    Experimental / Neofolk. The person behind KRAFT is Rotterdam based Robert Hofman. After release of debut album "Gelag van Zwartgeklede kraaien" of his band OSEWOUDT which was received very well in the Neo-folk scene he found himself with a gap as live shows don't happen very often in the small scene. One night he attempted to ruin and rebuild a friends jazz demo which later became the very first song of this album called "The Dreadful hours". At first it was all about personal trouble and difficulties of life. Later the love for MUSLIMGAUZE became an influence and being friends with musicians from Ukraine the protests and conflict and even a war in that country became one of the main topics of the story told in this album. Various instruments were bought and used and new friends were made. OSEWOUDT member Stefan Hayes (also black metal band TERZIJ DE HORDE) decided to add music and later Rotterdam based Ukrainian singer/musician Kate Orange, VARUNNA guitarist Dennis Lamb and Richard Leviathan (OSTARA / STRENGTH THROUGH JOY) joined to add to the whole. As it was quite hard to fit this project in a genre it was even more difficult to find a label for but in 2017 KRAFT found a home with Michael Schaffer's OPA LOKA records. [label info]

    MY SILENT WAKE -- "Invitation To Imperfection" -- CD -- €10
    2017 Opa Loka Records, OL1702
    Neoclassical / Medieval / Experimental. Over the past decade My Silent Wake have carved their name into the annals of music history. They have become one of the most admired bands in the doom/death metal scene with incredible albums of unsurpassed depth, like the revered A Garland Of Tears and 2015s stunning Damnatio Memoriae opus. However, alongside their formidable melancholy metal releases the band have a whole other side to their musical character. They have stripped their music down to its acoustic essentials both live and on album, and with releases like the acclaimed Eye Of The Needle they have ventured into the world of dark ambience. My Silent Wake have proved themselves as adept with undulating waves of sound as with spirit crushing riffs. After drawing a line under the first ten years of their existence with the successful collection, An Unbroken Threnody 2005 – 2015, My Silent Wake have begun the next chapter of their career with perhaps their most intriguing and adventurous album to date. To create the unique sounds of Invitations to Imperfection the band used over thirty different instruments – from zithers to mandolins, pump organs to karimbas...plus quite literally parts of the kitchen sink. They recorded in a variety of locations, harvesting the sounds that resonated with the vision in their hearts and added the final deft touches by utilising the synth skills of ATTRITION’s Martin Bowes. Anything that was needed to create the perfect sound, the perfect ambience, the perfect atmosphere. The result is a very special album – deeply affecting, quietly powerful; something that can draw the listener into themselves, inspiring reflection and Revelation. [label info]

    Spring Solstice, 6 am:

    The sound of sirens merge with the spring flocks of morning songbirds as dawn slowly spreads...

    Caught somewhat unawares in-between along the way, I've managed a for-the-while fixed stay outside Pittsburgh at least for some weeks until... ...well, we'll see.

    Though not exactly the Perfect Perch to wait out a storm or complete my life's tasks, I do have a cheap-ish room I can hangout in with access to hot running water, electricity, and internet that that's not paid by the megabyte.
    These are things as a traveler I've learned not to take for granted, I'm grateful for them, and I'm sure it's better than many travelers are faced with at this time.

    I'll have some space-time to continue some of my catch-up work and, perhaps as important to find every day a little time for to rest, relax and ponder.

    My accumulated aromatic travel pack is serving me well to ameliorate incongruities and to adapt as a stranger in a strange land: Oils of cedar, rosemary, various mints, chamomile and a few mysterious bottled mixtures I don't know what's all in there (but they're sure nice!)
    According to Plan:
    for Spring Equinox we now publicly release: Openhanded Spring (from Moonlit Missive #15)
    You can find this on most streeming platforms including:
    Bandcamp: ingowanring.bandcamp.com/track/openhanded-spring-moonlit-mi...
    Spotify: open.spotify.com/track/3y8v53GJ75jpltXzM3QcBf

    If you need additional music to listen to at this time:

    Please find last year's free compendium here: ingowanring.bandcamp.com/album/compendium-2019-free-download

    Get our Full Digital Discography temporarily reduced by 50% at bandcamp. Both our shops will have this deal for the rest of March at: In Gowan Ring ( ingowanring.bandcamp.com/ - 32€) and Birch Book ( birchbook.bandcamp.com/ 20€)

    Also through this March: use code "spring" (no quotes) at both Bandcamp sites for 15% off anything digital (and physical, but please note below.)

    Not According to Plan: Mail Order delivery for orders and the latest Moonlit Missive are on hold for the time being and so may be delayed for some time. You may still make orders in the normal way and even take advantage of the 15% sale above, but we are not having packages mailed out until... ...it seems the right time.
    Stay safe, take care to yourself and your familiars, and be sure whatever your circumstances at the moment, try to find some time to relax your mind & body in your favorite ways - perhaps recall your aromatics!

    Io, però, speravo in qualcosa di nuovo da parte degli Arcana. Dopo otto anni ce lo meritavamo!

    In realtà, come Arcana, è da più di 8 anni se non erro. Ma lui solista, o quasi, è ancora attivo

    Come vedi c'è qualcosa dell'anno scorso. Ma si può dire che il periodo d'oro è passato, ahinoi...
