  • Day #39/365: Burn The Witch by Ms She Rocola, a stately repose amongst the corn rigs and Victorian light catching

    Trails and Influences: Electronic Ether. Case #3/52.

    And while we’re on the subject of folk horror (see Day #37/365 at A Year In The Country)…

    This is a song by a good friend and sometimes creative compadre Ms She Rocola (and her compatriots in sound).

    She sent me a link to it a while ago and it stuck in my mind like billy-o… it’s all glacial presentation, jade eyed jealousy and enchantment, slightly unsettling violins and a wandering off into the lost lives of the Pendle trials.

    Listen to the song here.

    It’s also accompanied by a rather fine photograph by Zoe Lloyd;  a stately repose amongst the rural landscape and corn rigs, a folkloric meandering through the textures of Sarah Moon and Deborah Turbeville (this particular entrancing of the soul was created using light catching techniques from previous eras – traditional wet plate to be more precise).
