Alrihkh Much as the mystical whisperings of acid folk oft evoke fancies of mist shrouded woods and meadow blooms swaying in a breeze in my mind, I don’t care much for the underlying dark taint of despair and sorrow herein. However, I was eager to research some of these artists. I wouldn’t have bought this if I’d known beforehand I’d be supporting the disgusting music of a blasphemer by the name of James McKeown. Most of his ‘music’ is sick and evil. Like the poor soul on this cover. 5/10. Favorite track: On Ilkley Moor.

Nathan Payne The Active Listener is truly one of the better kept secrets in the underground music world. Both this sampler and the The First Acid Folk Sampler are excellent journeys into the outstanding music being produced in the underground by artists who aren't in it for any other reasons but the music and the magic.

All is not lost, just hidden. Favorite track: Gwen.

about

Here's a very late follow-up to our first Acid Folk Sampler, which came out back in 2012. We had a heap of submissions from many, many talented artists, so working out what to feature was very, very difficult indeed. As a result we've ended up with something of a mammoth volume, with 26 tracks in total - hopefully not too much for you all to digest!

There's quite a wide array of sounds here, with plenty of Wicker Man-esque folk-horror, pagan folk, acid-folk, some Hauntology / rural electronic sounds that bridge the gap between Nic Jones and Boards of Canada, and a selection of more overtly psychedelic folk tunes nestled near the middle of the mix.
