The Wizard of Wardle
The Queen of the Well (A Faerie Tale)

The Queen of the Well (A Faerie Tale) is a strange piece of work. There are spoken-word elements from 'The Naiad' and 'The Monk', electronic textures, as well as themes of the occult. I'm still not quite sure what's going on here, but if you want to hear a musical equivalent of the Wicker Man then this is for you. For fans of being right scared by eerie music and children speaking in unison. 

Hannah Leighton-Boyce
Industrial Folklore Tapes Vol. I - Instruments of Industry

Folklore Tapes here launch a series called Industrial Folklore Tapes, recognising that ‘folk’ life is just as likely to feature factories and machines as tending an orchard. Hannah Leighton-Boyce actually used some antique tools (sourced from a museum) in the creation of Instruments Of Industry, building up rich patterns of resonant metal ringing. The B-side is an audio catalogue of the tools. 10” vinyl release.

Fred Helliwell
Industrial Folklore Tapes Vol. II - Springs

Folklore Tapes have a new series named Industrial Folklore Tapes, which engages with the fact that ‘folk’ life is just as likely to feature factories and machines as tending an orchard. Fred Helliwell’s Springs is one half document of the sonic life of a spring workshop and one half composition for vibrating springs. And each of the 250 copies of this 10” record comes with an actual pressed spring!
