klaus morlock

You don’t really need me telling you that new outings by Klaus Morlock are essential listening distractions, even as the case may be here old recordings re-found anew as on ‘old negatives’. A five-track gathering of personal pickings from the vaults hand selected by the man himself, a few of which have been long out of print along with a simply stunning collaboration with the Hare and the Moon released Autumn time last year which will simply blow your mind in terms of the intricacy applied and the overall enchantment of the pastoral pageantry unfolding within – it’s a track we fondly mentioned in detail here – https://marklosingtoday.wordpress.com/2016/09/10/klaus-morlock-5/ Switching between moments of sepia glazed enchantment and darkly set tension draped pensively staring from the shadows mosaics, ‘old negatives’ tugs, pushes and pulls you back and forth between moments of prettified grace and petrified gloom, sometimes awash in a floral fashioning, Morlock crafts a romantic posy of bucolic beauty that’s breathlessly beguiled in a softly sighed classicist vintage, best exemplified here by the genuflecting courtship of ‘after the rain’. In sharpened ‘bleeding’ however offers up a mirror opposite, the mood dark, haunted, hunted and hollowed in a walls tightening paranoia. Elsewhere supernatural visitations and nightmarish occurrence eerie the ghost lit ceremonial that is ‘the burning of molly kingdom’ while the prettying lightly toed dance of the modal arrangements on ‘magic circle’ casts a spell weaving playful prickling that impishly woos between trick and treat, leaving ‘ephemera’ to see matters out oozed to the bitter sweet spray of noir toned pastorals. https://klausmorlock.bandcamp.com/album/old-negatives

while you are there you might do well to check out both ‘the Goatman’ and ‘the Blackheath tapes’ both as the Unseen – a collaboration with Simon Magus and both mentioned briefly here https://marklosingtoday.wordpress.com/2014/09/25/the-unseen/ when mentioning the ‘Mary’ soundtrack and there  https://marklosingtoday.wordpress.com/2017/03/16/the-unseen-3/
