This edition is in two parts

Part 1 – The Hare and the Moon – Grey Malkin Mixtape

Part 2 – Claude Mono  Atmospheric Horizontal Dance Music Ramblings

The Hare and The Moon first appeared on the Golden Apples during the very beginnings of the show a few years ago and our earliest explorations of the hauntology, and folk horror genres. Grey did a Golden Apples mix a year or so ago (listen here) and we are happy to have another one. The selections provide a hint towards the Hare and the Moon sound. Grey Malkin, creative force behind The Hare and the Moon uses the term ‘spook folk’ to describe the sound of The Hare and The Moon. The songs are all original traditional ballads and Grey Malkin as producer lays down a sound-bed to experiment with and to conjure up a mood or atmosphere that befits the subject matter of the lyrics or text. Often the songs are about death, murder, ghosts and talking ravens – well the best ones anyway.

Deeper listening is possible by checking out the three LPs ‘Hare And The Moon’, ‘The Grey Malkin’ and most recent ‘Wood Witch’. There are also some beautifully packaged limited editions over at Roger Linney’s Reverb Worship and some very atmospheric extended remixes here. The musical influences of The Hare and The Moon include the dark folk sounds of artists such as  Stone Breath or Pentangle’s moodier numbers, as well as the acid folk bands that were prevalent in the UK in the 1970’s such as Mellow Candle and Caedmon.
