intro [30 Nov 2018|12:34am]

I know this comm is dead (like so many on LJ), and really I just joined to comb through the archives to find music, but hey.

Intro thingy from the comm profile:

1. Name Arethinn
2. Favorite musicians/bands Hmmm... The Cure up to late 90s/early 2000s. Weird Al Yankovic. R.E.M. None of these probably count as "faerie melodies" except in some veerrry stretched definition re: the Cure, heh. Slightly more on topic, things I have a fair amount of are Blackmore's Night, Moon and the Nightspirit, Woodland, maybe Delerium.
3. What CD is currently in your CD player? This question sounds sort of funny in 2018, especially since I'm trying to get rid of my old stereo equipment as I don't use it anymore. Even in the car I only plug in a little USB thing with gigs of MP3s since I finally bought an aftermarket stereo a couple of years ago (the car is 2005 - same as this comm, heh - and did only come with a CD player). If I had to pop one in, probably Richard Searles - Earth Quest. (although actually I've never owned a CD of it; back in the 90s I had a tape, and I think I ripped some MP3s off it the hard way waybackwhen, but I know I just up and purchased it off Amazon a couple of years ago to get better quality files.)
4. Three CDs every faerie and elf must own. I don't think I can think of three, but I can think of one: Elvendrums - The Dragon.

Ephemeral Mists "Moon Ritual" [20 Feb 2009|10:56pm]


Ephemeral Mists is a new musical project by composer Brett Branning (also the composer for The synthetic dream foundation & Abandoned Toys). "Moon Ritual" is the debut cd, out now on Mythical records.

The sound of the project is best described as downtempo ambient new age music mixed with ethnic world musics in the vein of "Karma" era Delerium, Amethystium, and Steve Roach. Its really a very intoxicatingly beautiful creation and I sincerely recommend it to anyone into newage music styles. I'm looking forward to further releases by this project.

Abandoned Toys!!!!! [12 Mar 2008|03:25pm]


Abandoned Toys makes some of the most beautiful new age music that I have come across lately. If you like the genre, you should really look into their album, "The witch's garden".

'Ello.  My name is Andrea and i'm joining the group in hopes of discovering new music.

My favorites are Tori Amos,  Bjork,  PJ Harvey,  Hole,  Regina Spektor,  Fiona Apple, etc. etc.  Alot of Piano Girl music and metal...  Type o Negative,  Yeah Yeah Yeahs,  Cat Power, Siousxie, ...As well as some new age like, of course, Loreena McKennitt,  Dead Can Dance, Enya, and...  you can see more of my musical preferences on my old lj profile 


or on my myspace

I'm hoping to discover more.

3 cds all Faeries and Elves should own:  Anything anything anything Mediaeval Baebes; Tori Amos; or Dead Can Dance.  And maybe even the Amelie soundtrack.  Some Native American music is a must.

new girl [03 Jan 2006|09:54am]

[ mood | hopeful ]

Hi, my name is Gypsy, and I love all kinds of music, but am drawn to the faerie realm.
I adore Loreena McKennit, Enya, Paul Speer, Adiemus, AMethystium, Deep Forest,Enigma, Terri Oldfield...the list goes on. Right now I am blissing on Sarah Brightman.
I can't pick 3 cd's everyone should have, I am way too indescisive.
Many moons ago (the early '90'3 anyway) I used to stay up late on Sunday nites, because there was 2 hours of new age music on, with a host named Forest. I used to tape these airplays and search for the discs. Over the years and many moves i have lost my recorded audio tapes, yet over all those years there is one song/album I never found that was so haunting, beautiful, and intense that it lives eternally in my heart, but I would die to hear it once more. From what I remember, "Forest" stated that the song was entitled "A Crescent Moon In King Arthur's Dream," and the album was "Legends of Avalon," but I cannot remeber the artist. The song was purely instumental, with cello and viloins juxtaposed to create a flow of haunting yet flowing melody. The music evoked within me a vision of a deep fairy-forest of sark emerald trees and soft moss, staring out at night and the music then became lighter as it seemd morning broke...I would fall to my knees in eternal thankfulness if there is anyone out there who has any idea of what I am taking about...
Thank you and blessed be

I just joined this very interesting community. Very glad I found it.
I love Faerie Music. I've fallen in love with Gary Stadler's music most of all.
Would love to hear about new music. Music is a huge part of my life. Can't live without it. I love new age music, celtic music, Irish, Gaelic music.
Anything enchanting.
