  • Day #50/365: Lutine – music for the mind to wander with…

    Sometimes when writing about folk music people will talk about the purity of a singers voice… listening to Lutine I think I know what they mean.

    Quite frankly this is astonishing music. There is indeed a trembling, tremulous, purity to the singing… for some reason I am reminded of the sound of gently peeling bells in a land I know not quite where…

    Lutine music 1-A Year In The CountryTheir music is a haunting, minimal take on and reinterpretation of folk/tradtional folk and all I can say is my mind seems to wander off to another plain, place or indefinable time when I hear their songs, particularly on Died Of Love.

    I know little about Lutine, all I know is that they kept catching my eye while I was wandering around the digital fields of the world. The small gleanings I have come across include..

    But I shall let their music speak for itself:
    Listen to Lutine here and here, visit them here.
