Album Review: Mother Twilight by Faun Fables

Album Name: Mother Twilight
Artist: Faun Fables
Year/Label: 2001 / Earthlight Records

Review by Anna Maria Stjärnell

Dawn McCarthy was inspired to make “Mother Twilight” while travelling through Europe. The result is spare, ghostly folk with a myriad different influences.

Dawn McCarthy and partner Nils Frykdahl’s work is finely wrought and puts Dawn’s expressive voice to good use.

Though the music is sometimes so slow it barely seems to move, there’s always an underlying tension.

This music is rare and seems to hark back to days of old when magic was still alive and strange creatures roamed the earth.

A beautiful and brave record.
