:OF THE WAND AND THE MOON: - Midnight Will - MCD - 6 tracks - Heidrunar - 2005

There is no need to present the Danish musician Kim Larson or his neofolk project :Of The Wand And The Moon:. This mcd is the re-release of the long sold-out and much sought after 10" released by Eis & Licht in 2000. The five original tracks have been re-edited and re-mixed for this re-issue and they are completed with a live version of "Midnight Will" and a hidden track, a live version of "Sol Ek Sa".

The music is based on acoustic guitar and whispered vocals with the addition of keyboards, subdued percussions and chimes. Nothing but simple elements, yet these melancholic ballads with strong simple melodies possess a timeless beauty that has been rarely equalled since. But I guess most of you already know that...

"Midnight Will" is one of those few records to attain the 'classic' status and this often demanded re-issue comes as a timely reminder of this fact.
A must have.
