Sound Of The Day : NYIÞ

It was back in 2015 that I first talked about mysterious Icelandic project NYIÞ but today I re-discovered this massively important band. I'm currently at that point where I'm ransacking the pages of Google, trying to find out as much as I can about what the creepy as shit ambient endeavour has been up to… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : NYIÞ

Re-Visiting Osteal, Provider Of Scavenged Talismans

It was way back in 2012 - the year before Wyrd Words & Effigies launched - that I encountered Osteal, provider of earthy talismans from woodswoman Amanda Joe. I remember I bought a deer vertebrae necklace from her (thus starting my obsession with crafting my own jewellery from bones) and wore it to death. My… Continue reading Re-Visiting Osteal, Provider Of Scavenged Talismans

Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

I didn't realise that my head needed some black metal heavily influenced by the primitive sound of the old days...but when Nachtzeit popped up on my Bandcamp search, and it was actually massively listenable, I was so god damn appreciative. The project Nachtzeit is manned by the Swede behind ambient OMBM project Lustre, and its… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Nachtzeit

5 October Haiku By Mallory Rowe

As some of you may know, I was fully intending on re-launching Wyrd Words & Effigies Magazine this year, however, it was not to be, at least not in 2017 anyway. I did receive some exceptional submissions of writing and art, and I felt awful that I wouldn't be able to publish them in printed… Continue reading 5 October Haiku By Mallory Rowe

I Went Smoke Grey For A While

For my 31st birthday (which came around back in September) I thought about buying myself a blender. But instead of being a responsible adult, I purchased a couple of wigs from Amazon store Flouriding.  Basically, I really wanted to know how I would look with grey hair....I've also been wanting to progress with my self-portraiture,… Continue reading I Went Smoke Grey For A While

Below

It was thanks to Haute Macabre that I was introduced to Below....'A lifestyle shop for the rest of us.'  I have talked about dozens of lifestyle stores on WW&E over the past several years, but Below  - which was born on All Hallows' Eve 2013 - looks to be one of the most special. Offering… Continue reading Below

Where To, Hair? Part II

If you come here regularly, you might recall me grumbling about my hair and its lack of volume the other day, and that I was thinking about doing something drastic to it, i.e. adding to layers or going short. Thankfully, a fellow long haired female friend warned me that getting layers when you have long,… Continue reading Where To, Hair? Part II

Anxiety & Some Ways That I Cope With It

Anxiety. It is an ugly shit of a beast that I've lived with for over half of my life, and by hell, I hate it with every cell in my body. I could fill the North Sea twice over with all the tears it's had me shed. I could recall to you hundreds of times… Continue reading Anxiety & Some Ways That I Cope With It

Sound Of The Day : Lustre

I haven't listened to Swedish atmospheric OMBM project Lustre in some time...and its a shame really. Coming back to the music today has felt a little bit like going home - I pretty much know what to expect. But there is real comfort in that. Still Innocence the new Lustre album will be coming out… Continue reading Sound Of The Day : Lustre

Where To, Hair?

My hair has, for the majority of my 31 years, been my statement piece, my pride and joy, the be all and end all. I've always treated it with respect i.e. not ironing it every day, not using masses of products, not stripping it down. Though I do dye it black and have been doing… Continue reading Where To, Hair?
