The Hare and the Moon's album The Grey Malkin is truly a riddle. Steeped in universal mystery and shrouded in waves of ancient dust, we have ourselves the modern-day answer to the 60s folk movement of England and the international pull of a long lost "dark folk" allure, giving way to more aural references than one can even count.
The Grey Malkin now appears for the first time on analogue format, enjoying a hearty series of editions on CD-R via England's own Reverb Worship.

I'm not particularly well versed in folk music and what's in my record collection is all stuff from this side of the Atlantic. So, I had a little trepidation about snagging a copy of The Grey Malkin, unsure as to how much I'd like contemporary British folk. It turns out that fear was completely unfounded; The Hare and The Moon is fucking incredible. Dark, doomy, and vaguely psychedelic, I'm loving everything about this album. [GERAUSCHKRIEG!]
