Peruse Hand of Stabs at A Year In The Country: Day #155/365.
A Year In The Country: An English idyll, a midnight sun…
“A Year In The Country is a year long journey of and searching for an expression of my underlying unsettledness to the English bucolic countryside dream… and wandering about and through the trails of things that have influenced, inspired and intrigued me along the way, which will quite possibly take in the further flung reaches of folk music, folklore and what has been labelled hauntological culture.”
