Steve Von Till - If I Should Fall To The Field [2002]

Acoustic/Folk - USA
Project of the Neurosis frontman in a folk style reminiscent of Neil Young.
Haunted by the voices of generations past, Steve Von Till’s delicate and intense songs have the rare ability to speak for one while they speak for us all. The album is simultaneously universal and personal - with each exposed nerve of the artist’s life, it demands that we reveal the same.

Värttinä - Aitara [1994]

Finland’s Värttinä are distinguished by the fact that they have invented a unique roots-based vocal/instrumental style combining traditional Finno-Ugric vocal elements with original compositions and dynamic performance. Blending ancient Finnish runo poetry, distinctive vocal harmonies, traditional and modern acoustic instrumentation, complex rhythms and imaginative arrangements, the front line of three female singers with backline of six acoustic musicians are forging their own path in contemporary music.

Hagalaz' Runedance Trilogy

Neofolk/Ambient Folk

Hagalaz' Runedance is one of several music incarnations of neopagan musician Andrea Haugen from Germany, which remained active roughly from 1997 to 2002. After her dark Aghast project, Andrea decided to explore the myths and magical tradition of her own culture. Thus she created the musical entity Hagalaz' Runedance. She explores the magic and spirituality of Northern Europe, bringing to life the forgotten wisdom, focusing particularly on the feminine mysteries and the goddess worship traditions.
