Thoroughly weird and wired music from a trio who would have been burned as witches in the Middle Ages. It sounds like folk, if by folk you mean folk that's been left to marinate in Wicker Man-atmospherics and then had surgery carried out by the local exorcist. Who failed to restore the patient's health. I'm scared of this record but it keeps drawing me back. It's enchanted. (email@example.com)
