More Weird Music - Ksiezyc Rabbit Eclipse

From a recent edition of The Wire's Adventures in Music and Sound comes the Polish weird band, Ksiezyc, about whom I know nothing other than that Rabbit Eclipse, their new album, is their first for about 20 years.

The stand-out track is the last on the album and translate into English as Sirens - it is 15 minutes plus of droning hurdy gurdy with a single oboe tune occasionally put over the top and the two girl vocalists occasionally adding a few lines

As beautiful a piece as I've heard in a long time, and a track that also features on a live clip of them to be found on Youtube which is also excellent

More weird music - Aine O'Dwyer

From the current issue of The Wire magazine comes Aine O'Dwyer and a new favourite "weird" record - Music for Church Cleaners - a series of fairly impromptu church organ recordings that feature the sound of church cleaners in the background.

I don't know her other work, but will be finding out more very soon
