The Spirit Of Place: Folklore Tapes’ forgotten histories

Monorail Exclusive Bonus CD with every Folklore order


This is truly special. We’re really excited to team up with one of our favourite labels, Folklore Tapes, run by David Chatton Barker. Folklore Tapes has been responsible for excavating countless folklore and ghostly narrative from the darkest depths of Devon, Lancashire, Dartmoor… really they present an alternative, eldritch and supernatural history of this endlessly weird collection of islands.

Folklore Tapes have created an exclusive sampler for Monorail Music called The Spirit Of Place: Ten Years of Folklore Tapes which we will be giving away with every order of something on the label.

Our January Album Of The Month is Theo Brown and the Folklore Of Dartmoor, which takes a 70s Library / German Kosmische approach to the various legends and folk stories of a particularly haunted corner of England. Elsewhere, we’ve handpicked some other releases on Folklore Tapes which you can explore below.

Every release is made with the utmost of care and precision, featuring lithographed sleeves, extensive sleevenotes featuring essays and photographs pertaining to each individual project.

Really, it doesn’t get more forensic and loving than this.
