Lend Me Your Underbelly

Campfire Acid Folk
Lend Me Your Underbelly
Campfire Acid Folk

Vrystaete has guided us to some holy places in the European underground in recent years - introducing us to the likes of Brannten Schnure, Blessum, Interbellum and Bebe Fang, coaxing career-best recordings from Brunnen - and their latest excavation, from Lend Me Your Underbelly, is another relevation. It's the solo project of a Dutch artist roots in black metal and and now improvising  dronal, tripped-out, into-the-woods folk themes with bulbul tarang (behave!), acoustic guitars, mandolin and daubs of ultra-minimal electronics. Check the clips - I'm struggling to think EXACTLY what it reminds me of, but have no qualms bandying around sainted names like Brethren Of The Free Spirit, Thuja, In Gowan Ring, even ISB...It's beautiful, mesmerising music, and though resoundingly unaggressive it feels psychologically HEAVY, possibly communicating that special order of desolation that comes from spending your brightest days of your youth alone, in corpsepaint, thinking up inventive ways to murder people.
