Live at the Death Factory brought me here

Wish I could do what this guy does. It’s been said here, but I love how he de-academizes the study of this music while still putting in insanely rigorous research. Amazing amazing stuff. Please keep it up.

Lovely bit of music history

This show is genius. The history is fascinating, and the music is all beautiful. Put into historical context and made human, the delivery is not at all “academic” (using that term as a pejorative) but is coming from a place of love and passion (and is still well researched and thoughtfully presented!).

Very interesting background and history! Also highly recommend Lankum’s music! Cheers!
