Various Artists – [2015] The End

Essential dark folk compilation. And a massive one with 48 splendid tracks.

In case you are not perfectly familiar with the darker corners of folk music, give this compilation a try to whet your appetite. The tracks range from cinematic western soundtrack over blue rock to melancholic folklore, in other words: quite versatile for a genre that I otherwise would consider rather narrowly defined.

4. Cyanna Mercury – The Four Horsemen (Aphrodite’s Child Cover)

The Four Horsemen (Aphrodite’s Child Cover) by Cyanny Mercury is a furious 7 minute long blues rock extravaganza with the flair of a concert live recording, save the noisy crowd.

44. From The Top – Throw Me Off The Bridge

A dash of post rock made it into this dark trembling vocal piece. The spacious sound honours good speakers or headphones. Exceptional recording quality!
