Richard Ordered my vinyl copy. Can’t wait to give it a spin. After listening to these 3 songs I’m sure I will love it.
Thanks for the music

sackheim Words cannot express the excitement at hearing these 3 new tracks from Kim and company. We have been waiting a long time and it has been so worth it . She just has that otherworldly voice that completely captures the realm of the good and outre folk . I am also overjoyed to see her finally getting more global recognition that she has long deserved. (One of my dreams has long been to fly over to England and direct a music video with Kim ...I'm sure this will happen sometime soon!)

about

'The Hollows' is the long-awaited follow-up to 'Songs from the Uglee Meadow', the debut album, released in 2008. The track 'Snowbound', which also appears on the new album, was released as a single in December 2017,

Upholding the aesthetic of the debut album, ‘The Hollows’ evokes an archaic atmosphere and nuances of Celtic and medieval times. At the same time, it branches out into a more experimental and eclectic idiom with a more diverse range of instrumentation and more sophisticated production.

Track Name: Moonchild's Lullaby
In a dark magic wood on Anansi’s fine web
A moonbeam was caught on a gossamer thread
The thread wove a nest and a silken cocoon
From whence there emerg-ed the child of the moon

Sing for the stars in phosphorescent sky
Sing for the child, the moonchild’s lullaby

Stars in the firmament flicker and wheel
Watch carefully for the dance they reveal
A dance that was born in the echoes of time
Imparting the seasons with rhythm and rhyme

Sing for the stars in phosphorescent sky
Sing for the child, the moonchild’s lullaby
Track Name: Snowbound
Oh my love how soon you weary of these winter days
Round and round goes the time and on your mind it plays
You may tend the fire and wait for springtime to begin
But against the frost and snow you know you’ll never win
So it’s time for lying in

How your touch it warms my skin, your love it warms my heart
If I had my way you know we’d never be apart
Fire faeries dance and cast their shadows on the walls
While lords and ladies shiver deep in lonely palace halls
And the snow silently falls

Draw you nearer to the fire and rest your troubled mind
There is no more toil and only comfort here to find
The river’s raging torrent frozen hard as any ground
The forest breathing soft and low in frosty featherdown
And how I love to be snowbound.
Track Name: Woebetide Hill
Clamber up through bush and briar to Woebetide Hill
Spent ferns throw rusted spires round Woebetide Hill

Wind gusts in ragged sighs round Woebetide Hill
Come watch the full moon rise o’er Woebetide Hill
Cool grass flows, anoints your toes

Sanctuary you may seek on Woebetide Hill
Chaos walks on cloven feet on Woebetide Hill
Up here where the veil grows thin
We will draw the circle in

Blooms nod in springtime rain on Woebetide Hill
Time comes to meet again on Woebetide Hill
Watch fire burns, the season turns
