The other track I wanted to link you to tonight was this one by Manchester band Last Harbour, which I came across on Myspace, but who have their own website, with a number of downloads available from it. They have a rather gothic style to their music (that’s with a little “g”) that is rather fine.
Their website describes their sound in this way:
"Last Harbour are a Manchester collective playing rustic, cinematically atmospheric songs that rattle and loom, at once epic and intimate, harsh and beautiful. Using instrumentation that might traditionally be associated with folk music, the band instead hammer and sculpt their music into unusual and beguiling forms. This is music with a strong emotional content, both bitter and beautiful."
(I like the idea of rustic, atmospheric songs) I’ve provided a link to “The Wanting Seed” which is off their first album “The Host of Wild Creatures”, which seems to be out of print. They do have another album available however, from their website, “Hold Fast Pioneer”.
