Roymond Dark as hell and rock as fuck. Favorite track: The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra.

The4LetterNerd All Thoughts Fly was my introduction to AVH, and for whatever reason I slept on checking out her earlier stuff until now. The prompt of the new Live at Montreux Jazz Festival album helps, I guess.

Either way, I wasn't prepared for her vocals, but I feel like that's half the point. Her full-throated howls jar you out of being a complacent listener. The music here feels primal and divine. It has power. Each song is a cast spell, its magic wrought as we listen, compelling us to do so with intent. Favorite track: The Mysterious Vanishing of Electra.

St Bill Captivating, Magical & haunting from beginning to end. Favorite track: Ugly And Vengeful.

about

“Dear listeners.
This is the first track from my new album, Dead Magic!

Me, my band and Randall Dunn spent 9 days in Copenhagen recording this record. The great pipe organ you’re hearing is a 20th century instrument located in Marmor Kirken, "The Marble Church", Copenhagen.

Here is a poem for you by the Swedish writer Walter Ljungquist (1900-1974):

”Take the fate of a human being, a thin pathetic line that contours and encircles an infinite and unknown silence. It is in this very silence, in an only imagined and unknown centre, that legends are born. Alas! That is why there are no legends in our time. Our time is a time deprived of silence and secrets; in their absence no legends can grow."

Please enjoy the music.
Yours sincerely,
Anna von Hausswolff"
