Folklore Tapes

UK label Folklore Tapes managed to get under my skin and stay there yesterday while i listened through some of their discography.  The label compiles songs and projects from artists dabbling in folk, psych, experimental synth, noise, and more.  Here's how they describe themselves:

Folklore Tapes is an ongoing research and musical heritage project covering and soundtracking the folklore, mythology and occult annals of the UK in volumes of tapes and vinyl. Exploring mysteries, myths, nature, topography and strange phenomena of the counties.

Pretty rad right?  Anyway, one of the projects released this year is the compilation "When the Frog from the Well Sees the Ocean (Reports from English UFOlklore)," which is as weird and wonderful as i could have hoped, sounding like something Trish Keenan of Broadcast would have turned me on to.  Get the LP here and in the meantime, listen to Arianne Churchman's "The Luminous" below.
