"Go visit Baba Yaga
Find the talking snake in the garden
Rob the grave of a fallen idol
Give birth to an ancient curse
I don't care,
whatever gets you off"

Excerpt of Baba Yaga, a song off my forthcoming album "Where a City Once Drowned." .

Independent musician and visual artist Clara Engel - a true luminary of the folk noir firmament - is about to release the new album Where A City Once Drowned. I made a small contribution with the creaking chords of a harmonium on the closing track, Open a Door. The snippets and trailers so far sound poetic, wild, mournful and marvellous. This is gonna be a very special collection of songs.
To give Where A City Once Drowned a high quality physical release doing justice to the record, the design and album packaging, Clara has decided to run a campaign covering the production costs to bring you this great piece of art. It's running throughout March, but the donations are already approaching 80%, so things are looking very good. Follow @clara.engel.music to read all about it.

It's been a good while of silence I guess, but March is around the corner and a couple of projects that I'm very thankful to be a part of are seeing the light of day. Updates will follow in the next few weeks.

"Where A City Once Drowned: The Bethlehem Tapes Vol. II" is almost finished, but I would love to release it in physical form: a pressed cd with my art on the cover and a full lyric sheet included.
I've made a crowdfunding campaign to help out with this: 
www.ulule.com/clara-engel-album
Please check it out & share it around!

Some wondeful musical friends appear on this album. @tyrant_taylor plays cello on all songs and engineered the original recording session in Bethlehem. & then long distance overdubs began: @astorwolfe plays a beautiful meditative harmonium part, Brad Deschamps of @polarseasrecordings plays bowed glockenspeil and spectral ambient guitar, @museumface plays a glacial and thunderous bass and guitar line, @oaostrik plays a gently pulsing synth part, @tsinderash plays dark country banjo and sings back up vocals on a song.
Feeling really grateful to you all for what you brought to these songs, thank you 💓
.
Also a very big thanks to @qsq_giclee for scanning my cover art so beautifully (I highly recommend them if you live in Toronto and need high quality art prints made).

Listening to the rough mixes of my new album, and finalizing the artwork. It looks as though I will be doing a limited run of (professionally pressed) cds for this one! So all of you cd lovers had better buy one 😉
Pictured here is a tiny clip of "Baba Yaga," my paean to the legendary Russian witch. (It sounds way better irl, this is just a little iPod video)

Find the talking snake in the garden

Our selves burn
Our leaves turn
Remind me of who I was
Can a songbird ever change its tune

Our cells dream
Our hells bloom
A sea of dead languages, a swell of white noise and red roses
Laps at your teeth
But you cannot speak

Old feathered devil you are

A new minimalist documentary about my recent US tour is up on my Patreon page! (See link in bio)
.
Right now the video is visible to patrons only -- it'll be publicly visible after the weekend. (A membership of $1 per month gives access to all posts... and helps make future tours and albums more possible!)
.
Very pleased with how the doc turned out. It is lo-fi but has a real flow and mood... & features excerpts of several unreleased songs (Metamorphosis, At Night They Race Through The Stars, Baba Yaga) as well as some behind the scenes un-glamorous travel moments 😉
All footage was impressively captured by tour manager/organisational mastermind Ander Swift on their phone, and I edited it.
Thanks for reading,

On vocal rest for probably another week. Drawing and listening to Zeal and Ardor and refraining from speaking til I have to go in and speak for 4 hrs at my day job. Decided to start working on some posters. Here is a cartoon version of me that I may use for my Nov/Dec US mini-tour. .

Just released a new album (link in bio) planning a little US tour in Nov/Dec, about to begin recording a new instrumental album for a really neat label in Japan, and saving up to be able to finish properly mixing a collection of songs recorded last Spring. Also playing 2 shows in TO this month! Feeling a tad overstretched, as I'm just one human bean, not a machine.

My last payment from all streaming services combined was a pittance. Spotify and all the other streaming services are truly abysmal for artists like me. Bandcamp is great, and so is Patreon! If you like the work of an independent artist, please find them on one of those sites rather than exclusively streaming their work. ❤

image is a still from "Judex" by Georges Franju
Aside: judex is latin for "judge" and I feel confident in my judgement of all of these business people profiting off the work of artists who can barely make enough money for food and rent. Also wouldn't it be nice to wander into the costume ball of your rich nemesis and exact an elegant form of vengeance. (It's a great film, you should watch it.)

Bloody roots of a flowering sky
You can fry my third eye
With your fingers of flame
Touch me and dissolve my mind

A shore far from any prison
A name that changes with the season
A snake glides in and out of its skin
A pack of silver wolves comes down the mountain
In the evening

Race with me to the sheer blue cliffs
We’ll make a fire as daylight fades
Words break down, hearts flounder and drown
Embers ascend into singing flames

I just released a new EP called "In the Fog." https://claraengel.bandcamp.com/album/in-the-fog

The atmosphere makes me think of the fairy-tale film noir The Night of the Hunter, though that wasn't a conscious intention when I was making the recording. I recorded it at home with my field recorder, and Mitchell Girio mastered it for me at The Slow Cooker. It features mostly electric guitar, with some vocals here and there. The mood is dusk, swamps, indistinct edges...all objects and beings alive with luminous aspects and frequencies that are drowned out by the harsh light of day.

"The sad eyed chameleon
volcano grey
sits on his rock
on a thundery day
grey is his coat
and grey is his heart
grey-eyed chameleon
in deep grey thought"
