Default Fursaxa

Fursaxa, AKA Tara Burke, is an American Acid Folk/Psych-Folk/whatever musician. To date, she's released seven solo albums, I've heard four and they're all near-faultless as far as I'm concerned.

I can't begin to describe how amazing her music is without coming across as a twat... So I'm just going to post a few videos and hope somebody checks her out, you definitely need to.









I have links to albums if anybody is interested.

I actually just nicked this from your lastFM for future reference. I may not get to it soon, but when I do I'll get back to you.

You drive a hard bargain.

Took the self-titled. This will get listened to probably within the week.

... I haven't heard that one. I've got Alone in a Dark Wood, Mycorrhizae Realm, Mandrake and Lepidoptera. It'll be sod's law that the s/t is her one duff album.

RYM says it's her best, but if you want to throw me your favourite pick, I'll take that instead.

If RYM says so, go with it, I'll be snaring that bad boy very soon.

My personal favourite is Mycorrhizae Realm.

From the genres listed on RYM and the first track (Mycorrhizae Realm), I thought this was going to be a lot like the Taj Mahal Travellers' August 1974 (which is beautiful, but overlong for my tastes), but it's a great deal easier to digest than that, and I like that.

Didn't expect the vocals, but they're beautiful. Something about her music just sounds ancient, like a desert spirit journey or something. It's meandering, but her voice really centers it.

Great album for people like me who love free folk and drone in short doses. I was pleasantly surprised.

Glad you like, I cannot describe to you how much I love her music, it literally ticks every single box for me.
