- The Book of the Lost by Emily Jones and The Rowan Amber Mill
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 07 January 2014
This is the result of a year long collaboration between Cornish musician Emily Jones and Devon folksters The Rowan Amber Mill. Influenced by sneak viewings of terrifying horror B movies as children, its is an original soundtrack to a set of imaginary horror films. A truly multi-media affair, the album contains bits of dialogue scattered amongst the dark folky musings and you can visit their website for further interactions.
This will appeal to anyone with a passing interest in the kind of soundtracks re-issued by the Trunk label and the subsequent deluge of re-issues, re-workings and records influenced by 70’s horror. The main reference point on this record would be the eerie Wicker Man soundtrack. The album is full of that strange type of folk song where everything is not quite as it seems.
Emily takes lead on ‘Marsh Thing’ a churning folky dirge not unlike the kind of Pentangle referencing folk produced by the likes of Men an Tol and Owl Service. A male vocalist takes over on ‘The Villagers’ is all slow churning, psychedelic tones, a myriad of flutes with a deluge of things plucking…..eerily.
