TRAPPIST AFTERLAND / MOONGAZING HARE - "SONGS FOR NATHAN" (SUGARBUSH SB051), an audiophile issue on vinyl for the first time with 4 extra tracks not on the cd. a collection that gathers together both Moongazing Hare and Trappist
Afterland for an twelve track split set. Hopefully if we think on, we’ll
be coming back to this in due course, for now a brief tasting of what to
expect with us finding ourselves somewhat smitten by both bands
openers. The haunting ‘fine horseman’ opens the Moongazing Hare account,
emerging from the twilight, a ghost lit ballad whose shadowy
entrancement creaks with a magical hush to softly draw you in with its
eerily whittled woodland craft and into the bargain sumptuously steeped
with a morose majesty that recalls the black heart procession. Trappist
Afterland serve up ‘restless day’, in truth sounding like they’ve fallen
from another age long since consigned to memory and legend, they craft a
seriously intricate and nonetheless bewitching brew which manifests in
the shape of this outer worldly spirit walker. Swarthy, hazy and a tad
mystic, ‘restless day’ is the kind of thing you’d expect to emerge from
the shadowy backwaters of Ecstatic Peace et al, a mysterious folk
wanderer weaving a multi lingual tapestry of tripping acid folk and
Indian raga mosaics. £19.99 including postage annywhere.
