Well a day late on this one, sorry folks!
We have another 2 artists to update you on for our "Folk Music For What Lies Ahead" compilation due out this summer, both with Yer Bird Record connections.
Firstly we have our Yer Bird Records resident story telling troubadour;
Luke Elliot! Luke has provided an unreleased song to add to the compilation and once again takes you on a journey, this time with a tragic ending. Some might say it is a story that might have had no other ending, but this isn't a dark tragedy, but more a story of events brought to fruition with his patented performance. This one comes in almost as if it is a knee slapping ballad brought forth with (at times) furious acoustic guitar, electric accents and with accordion for good measure. You don't want to miss it!
We are also proud to bring flecks of our previous compilation in both artist and sound:
Blood Warrior! If you don't know already, last compilation featured O'Death - so it is fitting that this time we bring you Greg Jamie (of O'Death) and his fantastic new gothic folk band to this release. We have preached to this in the past but the term "folk" goes for miles and Blood Warrior holds a strong place in this genre for us. Think of a Southern gospel gone slightly awry, then got a soundtrack. This stuff is the kind of music you dig your teeth into, layers of screeching, howling and hooks bound together with an often driving beat and Jamie's voice above it all. This will be a band to watch (if you aren't already).
Aren't ya all getting excited? We are!
