V/A - Eileen Aroon

A wealth of autumnal glory. The reflective third volume in our Holy*Ghost mixtape continuum. Spectral folk traditions from the British Isles, and beyond. And beyond the beyond…At 120 minutes, Owl & I ran the gauntlet from joy to sorrow (and back again) to get this magic right. We do hope you enjoy it.

    thanks for the love, friends. really hoping this one grows & resonates with you the way it has with us. it’d be tough to overstate the number of ideas and drafts spurred in the lead-up to this finished flow. i’m feeling darn proud of how it turned out.
