Miasma and the Carousel of Headless Horses - Manfauna (EP, 2007)

"Miasma & the Carousel of Headless Horses are a British instrumental quintet that plays dark, antiquated sounding music encompassing elements of Eastern European folk, avant-rock, broken-down calliope music, and neo-classical film composition. More a trip to an anachronistic world of neo-baroque psychedelia than a simple study in diced-up ecclecticism, the music on Perils sways between lush chamber orientated melancholia, apocalyptic bombast, and epic ghost train high-drama. Featuring members of Guapo, Aethenor, Chrome Hoof and Cathedral."

Label: Latitudes

Great description, Witheringvisions. I'm in. I'll post back after I hear the stuff.

Mega. Neo-baroque, neo-classical, dark ambient, call it whatever you like, that's not the point. It's just great music, timeless and contemporary at the same time.

An awesome soundtrack for anything.

Cheers for the comment, one of the best bands going at the minute, indeed. Glad you like ;) CD and LP are both quite limited, so anyone wanting this better grab it quick. Great unique packaging on the CD, just like the other Latitudes releases.
