For those of you that are new to my MidNight Gems series. Welcome to this nightly trip on which we will uncover & recover some amazing songs that might have slipped your mind....or never even reached your ears and tonight the latter might very well be the case.
We are going back and not to the 60´s, 70´s or 80´s ......no tonight we will go back about a 1000 years. As I might have told you I played alternative gigs, but also goth and folk & medieval is part of that scene.
I think it started with Enigma and Enya, but I truly fell in love with the genre when I discovered Loreena. It does not matter which song, even her Christmas album is great. This next song is one of my favorites, but for tonight I think it will paint the pictures I like to see at the start of this journey.
Look for me by the Moonlight during this midnight of medieval madness......these babes were probably the second band that really pulled me back to my roots. These voices are magical...sugary sweet....but close your eyes and remember those days a couple of lives ago.
This night is getting darker and so will the music on our little trip. These guys triggered my dyslexia I always read the burned kids of Eva instead of the banned kids. So the truth is a little less dramatic, but you would not notice listening to this next song.
There is this great link between darkwave and medieval/folk and one of those bands that fit perfectly in that little dark niche is Inkubus Sukkubus. We are entering the witching hour so if you start seeing things moving in the corner of your eyes....there are things moving trust me.
Hope you are enjoying our little trip? We passed the darkest point of our journey and will now visit probably the best folk/medieval band from the Netherlands. I wish I had these guys play on my wedding/handfasting ....oh I did have them....it did not save the marriage but it makes an amazing memory.
Did I say the best Dutch Folk...I did then there is a little competition from this next band although they are again closer to darkwave with some folk influences. They make a great bridge between songs 6 & 8 and definitely deserve a place in this list. I think I have seen them live twice, but this song live is pure darkness.
That would have been a great closing song, but there is one more band that I would like to shill before we take our last zip and close our eyes. It´s in Flemish but I will provide you the translations, these girls are amazing even if you do not understand a word of it.
Being a former DJ playing about everything and having an uncompleted study of radio journalism I have been wanting to do this for years....Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.
Hope you enjoyed this slightly confronting wave of amazing music and you still feel like joining me on the next trip as vol. 29 of Midnight Gems is coming soon.
