Dαмiεи Youτн - Fεsτivαl Of Dεατн (1994)
The indie equivalent to a Scott Walker with a bit more psychedelic charm and a preference for the stripped down and lo-fi, Dαмiεи Youτн has been recording some mighty fine gothic folk records since the mid 80's, and continues to be one of the best kept secrets of the American independent music community even into 2012. He's got an earthen sort of tone that quivers mighty strange against the windswept deserted places his guitar evokes, like a narrator to nightmares you haven't had yet.
Recorded on a cassette and ripped from lossless by yours truly, 1994's Fεsτivαl Of Dεατн should appease whatever stringent occultic-folk cravings some of you might have developed since my Bob Drake post way back yonder. Have fun!
