Heilung Folk metal, Avant-garde metal, Neofolk, and Neo-Medieval music.

Now for something completely different. 
Heilung is a band of members from Denmark, Norway, and Germany. You gotta appreciate a band in that is in such strange genres as Folk metal, Avant-garde metal, Neofolk, and Neo-Medieval music. The male vocals aren't my fave but still very interesting.



 A show for shrooms.

If you find this sort of thing interesting there are several other bands in this genre. Nice to see something of such quality even if it isn't exactly my thing.

I am not familar with this artist but I will be but at least this video is cool. The nod to Debra Paget's scene from movie The Indian Tomb is very cool.

Are we really listening? Bob Weir and Dennis Leonard


I'm not a Dead fan but these guys are Dead on and are saying what we all have been saying for years.
 Distortion and low bitrate = BAD.

Dual University Tweeter

I've heard these in a vintage speaker system and they were pretty good. Not the last name in fidelity but very nice.

Lijadu Sisters


Two of my favorites vocalists. They are from Nigeria and have worked for decades. They recently toured with David Byrne. Incredible talents. I wish Lee Scratch Perry could produce them.

 Come On Home

Brociner Klipsch Speaker System

A pre Klipschorn advert from Brociner. I'm not sure what year that started using the phrase Klipschorn perhas late 1940's. I'll have to ask Klipsch historian Jim Hunter about this one.

Western Electric 1304 Broadcast Turntable 1947

I love these giant broadcast turntables. One day I will have one and it doesn't have to be Western Electric perhaps Fairchild or Gates or RCA.  This is a nice one.
