Subject: RE: Guardian on 'Shuffle Folk', 'Weirdlore'
Algernon and The Hawk recently received a glowing 3.5/5 review in Homophobic Druid zine. It said :

"Formed from the ashes of wyrdfolk pioneers Tentackle, AATH wear the fabric of mythic folklore in the same way that the clergy wear vestments - anachronistic, sometimes unintentionally comedic, but mostly with unquestioning belief in its symbolism. The whispered vocals of Algernon himself are buried deep under layers of reverb and sampled static, but the supporting textures of electric zither and tibetan bowls keep the whole from sounding derivative."

I believe Wyrdlore will be their first public performance in the new guise. 'Guise' being the operative term, from what I hear.
