Artist Rec :: Hannah Fury

Today’s Recommendation is Hannah Fury.

I first learned of Hannah Fury in 2003 when she sent me her album, The Thing That Feels. I reviewed it, and called it “a thing of beauty” and “dark and beautiful”. The album made it to my Best of 2003 list (even tho it was released before that, I based my lists on when I heard the music).

Hannah writes, performs, engineers, and produces all of her recordings. Her music is rhythmic, eerie, dreamy, spooky, and beautiful.

She recently released two “EP”s on Bandcamp and I just got them both. I’m happy to say that 17 years later, she’s still got it.

She recently suffered a great personal loss. In true artist fashion, has funneled this into music that she has put up on Bandcamp for free (or a donation). Please check it out.

Collected SoundsHey friends! I did a thing…I published the trailer for my podcast, Collected Sounds. Have a listen, please be kind. 
I really struggled to get it under 2 minutes (Apple will only allow trailers under 2mn) so the editing is a little janky.
Let me know what you would like this podcast to be! I’m open to ideas!

Featured Podcast :: Supernatural

Today’s recommended podcast is Supernatural with Ashley Flowers

Ashley Flowers is probably best known for her podcast, Crime Junkie. But instead of True Crime, this one is…true…weirdness?!
In this one, she covers stories that you may know, like Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, Dyatlov Pass, MK-Ultra, Who Put Bella in the Wych Elm? and also other things like exorcisms, alien abductions, and more.

Ashley is a great storyteller and these stories are well researched and presented. If you like spooky stuff that’s real, this is your pod. 

Some of my favorite episodes:
The Exorcism of Anna Ecklund
Somerton Man
DISAPPEARED: Ettore Majorana

It’s been quite a while since I first heard her music. I have her album, The Colder Months, which came out in 2014. So I no longer remember how I found her.
My guess is Amazon Music or Spotify. But at any rate, I’m glad I listened when she was new and that I’ve remained on her mailing list and connected on social media because I was aware when she released her newest album, Bad Vacation. It’s a good one!

I really can’t find much info on her personal life online. The “bio” on her site is a blurb about her new record, as opposed to a biography. So if you want to know more about her, I suggest following her on Instagram. She’s quite candid.

I could go on about her style, trying to describe it, and comparing her to other artists, but honestly, it’s better if you just listen for yourself. She’s amazing!

A few stand out songs for me, and the albums they are from:
“I Am Not in Love Anymore” – The Colder Months
“Devotion” (sort of an 80s feel) – Bad Vacation
“Thin Ice” – Bad Vacation
“Ocean” – Two
“The Colder Months” – The Colder Months

 

Discography
The Colder Months (2014)
Two (2015)
Fine but Dying (2018)
Bad Vacation (2020)

Podcast Rec :: Lore and Cabinet of Curiosities

Today’s podcast recommendation is a two-for-one: Lore and Cabinet of Curiosities

Since we’re heading into the Best Time of the Year…Halloween, I am going to start sharing my favorite spooky ones and I’m starting with giving you two classics.

These are storytelling podcasts. The stories are all true. They are dark and historic, though often little known tales that are presented in a lovely yet spooky way.

Cabinet of CuriositiesThe “Cabinet of Curiosities” episodes are short (under 15 minutes, usually) and contain two stories each, that are related in some way. They’re not scary, just interesting and often they have a little twist at the end. I love to listen to these as I drift off to sleep but just need something to fill my brain so it will stop talking to me.

 

LoreI’ve been listening to “Lore” for so long I don’t even remember how I heard about it. I’m guessing that it was recommended to me on Podbean (they have a great recommendation system). Lore is made up of episodes that tackle more in-depth folklore (still these remain under 30 minutes usually, but it’s one story per episode) and is a little more dark and spooky. This one gives a little more explanation of the stories and how they came to be legends.

They’re both produced, written, and read by Aaron Mahnke

One BONUS for Lore…the music is absolutely beautiful. It’s all written and performed by Chad Lawson. I sometimes just listen to Chad’s music to sleep. It’s so lovely.

So there you have it, actually a THREE-for-one!

What are some of your favorites spooky podcasts?! Drop yours in the comments. They might be ones I’ll be featuring soon.
