Hey Lisnaholic, I am well, thanks

Well, like I said, this mix was made to embody a certain vibe and theme. For a proper beginner's guide I would've probably added some other acts, like Six Organs of Admittance, Sunburned Hand of the Man, Jackie-O Motherfucker, Wooden Wand and the Vanishing Voice, No-Neck Blues Band etc. I would've basically started with New Weird America movement and then gone from there (ah well, now I have a motivation...).

After all terms free folk and freak folk were born out of that movement, and were (and I think still are) pretty much interchangeable. There were also names like new folk and wyrd folk. (I see them less now though). People can make a distinction, like free folk uses improvisation, drone and general avangarde to deconstruct folk, but to me it's not really necessary, because that's what freak-folk also implies. (I mean in the 60s, more structured songs and epic improvisational jams were all called psychedelic rock)

Term freak-folk maybe gained more traction later especially after it started incorporating more pop, song oriented, commercially attractive folk until it pretty much devolved into generic indie folk (like it always does). I like to think that this mix (and another one I'll make) is emphasizing 'freak' in the folk.

The idea of this thread is really cool, and I hope it makes a comeback.

What's amazing is that I made this thread almost ten years ago now, it was obviously one of my first ones, as I joined originally in 2008 and kept pretty much to my journal for a long time, so once I ventured out into the wild as it were I would have mostly just contributed to threads. This therefore, given the date, must have been one of the first I created, and so well received at the time.

Where did it all go wrong?

This thread and The 10 Track Mixtape Thread used to be fantastic resources for discovering new music, in the days before Turntable and Plug became really popular.

I think the creation of the Soundtracks & Compilations sub-forum killed these two threads the most. From what I remember they used to be stickied in the General Music forum, but now they lie in here forgotten about. It will probably take a lot to get this thread flowing again but I'd love to put together a few more beginner's guides.

Well that and I think people were more interested in making their own instead of listening to others so it just kind of became a dumping ground that didn't really foster any discussion.

Here's a playlist I like to call...

Getting Elphenor Into Metal

I figure since he likes Post Punk, some angsty Hard Rock and early Metal would be the way to ease him into it. So here's a quick introduction to the early Metal sound:

1. May Blitz - For Madmen Only
2. Stray - Only What You Make It
3. Suzi Quatro - Daytona Demon
4. The Pink Fairies - Do It
5. Killing Floor - Acid Bean
6. Birtha - Judgement Day
7. Red Dirt - Summer Madness Laced With Newbald Gold
8. Andromeda - The Reason
9. Fanny - Seven Roads
10. Budgie - Breadfan
11. Pluto - Crossfire
12. Free - Woman
13. Lucifer's Friend - Toxic Shadows
14. Spooky Tooth - I Am the Walrus
15. Dust - Pull Away
