The final part of a trilogy of musical exploration that commenced with a Broadcast Tribute, and was followed by a serious Psych Folk Session completes this Sunday at 2pm on RTRFM 92.1 with Grey Malkin from the The Hare And The Moon welcoming the Solstice with the Summer Is Icumin-In mixtape…

An interview with The Hare and the Moon over at Golden Apples friends The Active Listener

Let yourself go on location in some creepy early 70’s Brit folk horror. Elements of Komeda waft through the ether, deadheaded lullabies usher their dark disturbia whilst an eerie procession of monastic chants and siren-esque shivers engage upon a witching hour dance.

Listen to the Come unto the corn mix

Listen also to ‘There Were Faces in the Hedgerow’ – An exclusive mix reimagining the music of the Hare & The Moon by Melmoth the Wanderer

Summer Is Icumin

Summer has come,

Loudly sing cuckoo!

Seeds grow, and meadow blooms

And the woods bud anew,

Sing cuckoo!

The ewe bleats after the lamb,

The cow moos after the calf,

The bullock leaps, the buck farts,

Merry sing, Cuckoo! Cuckoo! Cuckoo!

Well you sing Cuckoo, Nor cease you never now
