Sounds Of The Day

In 2019 I made music but listened to hardly any. Chelsea Wolfe managed to find her way into my head with The Birth Of Violence as did Grift with Aftonklang Live at Emanuel Vigeland Mausoleum, but that (and Windir) was pretty much all I could tolerate. However, today I felt ready to reclaim my love… Continue reading Sounds Of The Day

Sound Of The Day : Singing Ice

I haven't been able to listen to music recently. (Who would have thought depression could prevent me from doing that too?) But, I had the good sense to click on Jonna's Jintons Singing Ice video, a two hour long 'song' of growing ice creating otherworldly sounds. And folks...my soul for a while stopped trembling. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qd-CwJa1SHE

Music To Come Back To Life To

I wanted to tell you about this song three days ago, but every time I sat down to write about it, words failed me. They're failing me now. Thanks to my depression/medication stealing away my creativity, I'm finding it impossible to express myself. But, I really need to share the song Ei Kuule Emo Minua… Continue reading Music To Come Back To Life To

Celebrate Samhain With Cave Mouth

To celebrate Samhain, my band Cave Mouth has released a new EP... a small pocketbook of folk horror and silver tongue sonnets. A dark fairy tale spiriting those away to enchanting landscapes of yore. Brimming with forest speak and incantations, wrapped up by the dead tree refuge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9cQZCOXqxEE But that's not all! We also have… Continue reading Celebrate Samhain With Cave Mouth

Cave Mouth Debut Music Video

I've been sharing music videos on Wyrd Words & Effigies since 2013, and not once did it ever occur to me that one day I'd be sharing my own. Yes dear readers, today Cave Mouth releases its debut music video A HEX ON YOUR HEAD! We collaborated with the immensely talented artist and filmmaker Lagomorphosis… Continue reading Cave Mouth Debut Music Video

Sound Of The Day : Horzines Stara

It was by pure, glorious chance that I happened upon French musical outfit Horzines Stara today. Thank you Bandcamp! I know zilch about this project...yet, but I DO know that I'm infatuated with Wayfaring Stranger, an American folk tune from the early 19th Century and the first track from their EP Ces Voûtes. The vibes… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Horzines Stara

Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe

The frame of mind I've been in recently hasn't enabled me to listen to much music. I'd put something on and find I wasn't able to absorb it, and, after a few minutes or sometimes even less, I'd need to click off and retreat back into silence. Now, don't get me wrong, I need my… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Chelsea Wolfe
