The Active Listener's Acid Folk Sampler Volume Two
Here's a very late follow-up to our first Acid Folk Sampler, which came out back in 2012. We had a heap of submissions from many, many talented artists, so working out what to feature was very, very difficult indeed. As a result we've ended up with something of a mammoth volume, with 26 tracks in total - hopefully not too much for you all to digest!
There's quite a wide array of sounds here, with plenty of Wicker Man-esque folk-horror, pagan folk, acid-folk, some Hauntology / rural electronic sounds that bridge the gap between Nic Jones and Boards of Canada, and a selection of more overtly psychedelic folk tunes nestled near the middle of the mix.
You are welcome to download free of charge - just enter $0 into the payment field - or if you enjoy our services, please consider making a small donation to help cover our various costs. Download here.
We're pretty proud of how great this mix turned out - it's a great showcase of what the current underground wyrd folk scene has to offer. Thanks to all of the featured artists, and to you for listening.
