Wow! That's a really powerful track, Frownland. Thanks.

That's given me the motivation to explore some more MC. I've been planning to do so ever since a friend sent me this link:- https://www.theguardian.com/music/20...nd-sonic-youth

I didn't expect him to sound as good as your track though, which reminded me a bit of Greg Brown, as recommended by Stephen :-

The Evening Call by Greg Brown

And my fave track from that album :-

His latest album, 50, is the first I've heard from him. At first I confused him with Michael Hurley, whose album First Songs is among my favourite americana albums. I'll definitely be checking out more of Chapman's stuff as well.

Michael Hurley!! It's nice to see him mentioned. Do you like Jackson C. Frank too, frown?

.....

P.S. Yes, surely there is some angry freak-folk genius who does more with the genre than play coffee-shop background music, or horror-movie soundtrack music, which is what it makes me think of usually. Perhaps I'll check out some more Fursaxa as Frownland speaks highly of them.
I always enjoy throat-singing, but I especially enjoyed the second video! And, I too think Fursaxa would be worth investigating, though I personally haven't listened to much of them. (They're not in the coffee shop background music category, at least. And I for one would be thrilled to have more "horror movie soundtrack"-esque folk aside from Chelsea Wolfe and other similar artists, not that I don't like them.)

..Yet again I have no songs to post. I'm extremely picky about vocals; I've complained before about the lack of strong vocals in my preferred type of folk music and it really is exasperating. I don't necessarily require Diamanda Galas type howling-in-the-bowels-of-hell-levels of passion/crazy vocal strength, though that would of course be great. Oh, actually, typing that made this song come to mind; I've always wished it were longer:



^ I need more like that. I love songs which sound like dirges emanating from the underworld.

Just listened to it, that's a great record.

Well how about that? Some of the cuts on And Then There Were Three could easily be Yes songs.

Not sure but I'm on the case.

EDIT: Based off of a preliminary listen of Heartbreak Hotel, I'm going to go with yes.

^ I really liked that song so I've been having a look at some other Michael Hurley songs. They sound great! One called Portland Water seems particularly good to me.
Thanks Chiomara and Frownland.

^ Yes, that first track was quite a surprise! Given that the Fully Qualified Survivor album is supposed to be like a Hunky Dory from a parallel universe, MC has obviously tried a few different styles in his time.

As the album image is so unrevealing, I went into my first listen with absolutely zero preconceptions. That's always a good way to start out actually, although most often we come to new music with some ideas, tips, or received opinions first.
Anyway, if you want ( before but preferably after playing rostasi's rec) a clue about Saagara then open this spoiler and see them in action:-

Peabody Energy, largest coal mining firm in the US:-

"Peabody supports the administration's decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement. We believe that abiding by the accord, without significant changes, would have substantially impacted the US economy, increased electricity costs and required the power sector to rely on less diverse and more intermittent energy. Peabody continues to advocate for greater use of technology to meet the world's need for energy security, economic growth and energy solutions through high efficiency low emissions coal-fuelled power plants and research and development funding for carbon capture."
^ Mr. Peabody may be happy with Trump's decision, but plenty of others won't be. This old song has a new-found poignancy about it this evening:-

In Mali, folks throw parties that highlight the balafon (it's an idiophone like the xylophone) played by the local villagers.
The city folk want these parties too, but they can't afford to pay for these villagers to come into town,
so they came up with their own electro-versions by using software to cut up balafon sounds from traditional recordings
and plop them on top of modern beats and, voilŕ, you have a new genre called "balani show."
