WYRD CALENDAR :: we have the pleasure to participate in this wonder book+album forthcoming on Mega Dodo 1st January 2019. All profits will go to cancer research UK. Following the success of “Songs from the Black Meadow” in 2016 Mega Dodo and Chris Lambert are proud to present Wyrd Kalendar, a new Book and CD release. This will be released on January 1st the beginning of the next Wyrd year. Wyrd Kalendar takes the year as its starting point weaving from dark and forgotten traditions stories and music to delight, disturb and escape into. Artists from the England, Scotland, Ireland and Portugal were each given a month of the year and a story from the book (Wyrd Kalendar) as a starting point from which to create a vastly eclectic and evocative mix of genres that sweep from the worlds of Folk to Electronica via Psychedelic licks and lost Horror Soundtracks. Each month is presented by a different artist. January: Widow’s Weeds (lead by Grey Malkin formerly of The Hare and the Moon) give us their occult tinged hymn to that month in Song for January. February: Electronic wizard Keith Seatman explores the strange world of the Three Day Girl forever doomed to experience the missing days of that truncated month. March: Psych-Folk singer Emily Jones brings to life the words of her long dead ancestor in Waiting for Spring. April: Psychedelic Queen of Spring - Crystal Jaqueline plays us all for fools as she goes Chasing the Gowk. May: Ghost Box’s Beautify Junkyards charm us with their delicious and haunting May Day Eve. June: Alison O’Donnell of Mellow Candle, Flibbertigibbet, Firefay and United Bible Studies teams up with David Colohan on her wasp celebration Deadly Nest. July: Scarfolk collaborator and electronic ghost of Cold War Britain Concretismbrings to life A Fair by the Sea. August: Icarus Peel explores lost love and yearning as he explores the words of the aching and humid The Weeping Will Walk. September: Legendary Folk Rock duo Tir na nOg encourage us to raise a glass to Autumn with Columbine. October: Wyrdstone explores the haunting rhythms of harvest in The Field. November: The Soulless Party leave the Black Meadow to take us for a Dark November Drive. December: The Rowan Amber Mill explore the darker side of Christmas with The Witch’s Lament. The Year: The 13th track of the album is called Wyrd Kalendar. The Mortlake Bookclub explore the world of the book and the year through their unusual aural game of Exquisite Corpse.
