One of my favorite tracks of hers so far as well. The Grieg influences are really strong in the opening choral bit.

Last track “Winter Dress”–is that a Red House Painters reference? I definitely hear some RHP in the title track.

Could be because P4k dismissed it. I love The Twilight Sad but hadn’t gotten to their latest yet; it’s on my list now.

Fuck me this was worth the wait.

Wow. Despite their aping Deafheaven, I am blown away. Especially since I was pretty unimpressed with their previous album, Funeral.

Awesome! The track borrows the main tune from the “Vltava” movement of Smetana’s “Ma vlast” (My homeland) symphonic cycle. Check it out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdtLuyWuPDs

I would say your photo is pretty black metal.

Fantastic track. Just what I want from Panopticon.

Agalloch was electrifying, but their poor sound was a real letdown.

Almost glad I wasn’t at the show–judging from that clip it sounds like the audience was uninterested in actually listening to the music.

I’ll be at MDF, only for one night, and for Agalloch, but can’t wait!

This has already shaped up to be her best album.

Can’t agree with you and Trevor more about the sheer volume of amazing albums coming out this year, and it’s only April 1! The avalanche started with a number of releases coming out at the very end of 2013, and by February it was already apparent that we were in for an extraordinary run of great metal. And we haven’t even heard the two most anticipated albums yet!

Great stuff…was really surprised that Vaura didn’t make it on to more best of 2012 lists.

Definitely it will NOT go undiscovered; I’ve been waiting for this since the first album.

August 27, 2013 on Fyrnask – “Siaidha” (Stereogum Premiere)

Awesome stuff. Like last month it’s taking me over two hours to listen to and check out all the bands I’m less familiar with (not that I’m complaining)

So glad Stereogum is bringing back a column dedicated to metal! Been missing HTC.

can you recommend any particular “haunted ’60s/’70s pastoral folk” bands? I know about Comus, but that’s about it. This album is excellent by the way, I’m very glad to have found it.
