Look, Stranger - To The River

from by Various Uncivilised Artists

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    From the Mourning of the World is a unique compilation album brought to you by the Dark Mountain Project, the global network of artists, musicians and writers who are crafting new stories for a civilisation in trouble.

    Featuring: an exclusive alternate version of Caesar recorded specially for the album by BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2011, Chris Wood; BBC Radio 2’s Folk Singer of the Year 2010 Jon Boden; celebrated artists such as Chris T-T and Bethia Beadman (whose track is a duet with REM’s Mike Mills); this is a beautiful compilation of the wild and uncivilised music associated with the Dark Mountain Project.

    Through our IndieGogo crowdfunding page we managed to raise just under £3000 of the £5000 we need to create this beautiful album on vinyl. If you order a copy you will receive the download immediately but the vinyl might be a few months behind. We have a number of fundraising gigs planned as well as selling copies through this bandcamp page so you should have your copy by the end of the summer.

    Thank you for supporting our first venture into creating an album!

There's a moment
When I'm thinking of you
That's half revealed
In gold or in blue

Sun dissolving
Dying the sky
From blue to gold
But no Midas am I

To the river
End of the night
Golden river
Watch the water ignite

Wind beginning
And bending the past
Into the now
In unending blasts

And I've written
You since you began
But now you're real
And we hang hand in hand

To the river
End of the night
Golden river
Watch the water ignite

Half remembered
Your whispered surmise
Becomes the breeze
And closes my eyes

Empty wanderings
Led me to you
And hand in hand
We fade out of view
