I think I'll have to jump on this 'un:

 

• Researched and executed by 31x artists 

• Twelve-inch vinyl and download code 
• Twenty four page A5 pamphlet includes plantlore and illustration from each artist along with Jez Winship study and herbal medicine section by Zoe Naylor. 
• Download of the ten minute 16mm film by Mary and David 
• All contents housed in plant relief printed manilla sleeve 
• Contains seed envelope harvested by FT members
 
 
- I hope this doesn't mean they'll stop doing the DVDs, those are great  :)

Pre-ordered this one, such a great roaster of artists, I believe this is the first 12" vinyl on FT? I do have the original Songs for Hannah Henley LP, but that was on a different label. Hype

Not quite, the vinyl in the 'Black Dog Traditions of England' was a 12".

https://ruralcolours.bandcamp.com/album/the-dawn-trance

 

21min long rural field recording when walking in the woods alone at night. Marvellous indeed.

 

yeah that's a good one. i play it almost every mawnin

 

i like how it sounds like he's just banging small bongo drums with various sticks whilst watching the sun rising in the background.

 

did you get the other tape where he does some singing

been listening to this record the past two days. what a brilliant album. the focus here is about the plants history and their place within folklore. some of them are pretty obvious: arianna churchman's foxglove piece is pretty much a folkstory (with music) about how foxglove was once used. kelly jayne jones also does a narration (with sound effects) like she's under the effects of chasteberry. zoe naylor had one of my favorite pieces where she's giving the biological advantages of nettles. also i loved hannah leighton boyce's recipe. 

 

like any compilation, it's a little uneven (what the hell was hugh metcalfe doing?) while the usual folklore peeps have (conceptually) the strongest pieces. but the whole thing works beautiful as a whole
