MIDTERM MUSIC: VERY FREAKY FOLK

The weather is super sad and so are you. You have like three papers and two tests and you have to leave campus pretty soon.. Here’s some freak-folk to get you through the rough times.

Fursaxa+f2

The Tower Recordings – Q Delmak 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anbN9ud1jkg

90s bedroom folk. includes members of mv + ee. almost trip-hop, but instead stripped, subtly rhythmic and lo-fi. loses it’s own place towards the end and tapers out with an ambient/noisey outro. 

Lau Nau – Painovoimaa, valoa

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXDKO9v8hSc

for those who like grimes’s baby voice, imagine it desolate and fuzzy in an open field. add weird assortment of instruments, both traditional and outlandish and oh yeah everything is in Finnish too.

Espers – Rosemary Lane

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TArPsHYj5Yc

Philly psych folk. this album, the weed tree, is comprised of covers of the likes of blue oyster cult and nico. this one covers Burt Jansch and takes his loopy picking to a synthesized fantasy realm. kinda nerdy but i don’t mind.

Fursaxa – Sunhead Bowed

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UMPIwVkn4xQ

not as overdubbed as most of her vocal performances, yet still quite powerful. acid folk from PA. despite a lack of instruments, this song is able to build an intense and dynamic wall of sound. it never gets too loud, but it feels very loud.

Palace Music – Viva Ultra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1voU6Mknso

bonny is the ultimate pro of strategically creating nostalgic AND foreign melody with little material. everything here is necessary and nothing more.
