Eis & Licht rocks on

Eis & Licht, the German label for “dark & apocalyptic folk music’, started the year well with two new releases by old friends in new shapes.

First they are twelve new songs by Alex Fergusson (Alternative TV, Psychic TV) on The Castle (CD Eis048). Expect a “a very natural, short, but to-the-point album, starting off in an experimental, rocking and subtly psychedelic vein.” Then there is Primus Inter Pares, a project by Orplid’s Frank Machau. Gerda (“CD Eis047 ) is “a work of music that is completely electronic, even though it seems perfectly organic and natural.” Available at the better shops or @ neofolk.de.
