i know animal collective are a huge, and i think i understand their appeal, but i am far from enthusiastic about them, sawwy... (i also fail to hear a link with comus, either stylistic or ideological)

Comus is rather original but their album First Utterance is probably the most famous "freak folk" album their is. Sung Tongs by Animal Collective is another highly popular "freak folk" album. I suppose that is their stylistic link, also that AC have named Comus as an influence (I think so anyway). Animal Collective are one of those bands that will grow on you though. I'm not really sure I've ever met anyone who has liked Animal Collective the first time they heard them (inb4 I liked them immediately).

I've given them plenty of opportunities and they continue to bore me terribly.

No idea what Neg means by folk or pop, so I voted Classical.

negative creep is a fucking retard and getting into a music discussion with him is basically unlearning everything

and idk why you guys are rec'ing AC, it's a pretty abstract leap from the likes of comus. not to mention majorly inaccessible.

george, folk records you might be interested in:

Comus-like

Exuma - s/t (not very similar in sound but very similar in spirit)
Spires that in the Sunset Rise
Crawling to Lhasa
Circulus
Espers (not like comus at all actually but one of my all time favourite bands, look into Espers II)

pay in mind that comus was influenced by pagan literature and themes and were pretty singular for their time. but of course, they did not exist in a vaccuum and were indebted stylistically to various aspects of british/european folk culture. ill try and break down some records in my collection into genre/sound specifics so you can youtube them knowing what to expect -

Medieval Psyche-Folk

Avaric - S/T
Malicorne
Can Am Des Puig - Book of Am
Le Saga de Ragnar Lodbrock - S/T
Waldteufel - Heimliches Deutschland

Portuguese/Brazilian Psyche-Folk

Chico Buarque - Construcao
Alceu Valenca - Molhado de Suor
Joyce & Nelson Angelo - Nelson Angelo & Joyce
Satwa
Lula Cortes e Ze Ramalho
Banda Do Casaco - Dos Beneficios Dum Vendido No Rei No Dos Bonifacios
Grupo de Accao Cultural - Pois Cante (Check out all their individual members for an M.A. Degree in the Portuguese folk scene)
Vainica Doble - S/T
Gaiteiros de Lisboa - Satiro
Caetano Veloso - Joia
Fausto - Por Este Rio Acima

Catchy but Messed up Psyche/Avant-Folk

Prince Rama of Ayodha - Threshold Dances
Only a Mother - Feral Chickens
Big Blood & The Bleedin' Hearts
Azalia Snail - Snailbait
Charming Hostess - Sarajevo Blues
Eddy Detroit - Immortal Gods

Actually Interesting Singer-Songwriter Folk

Jose Afonso - Cantigas do Maio
Jake Thackray
Robin Williamson - Songs of Love & Parting
Buffy Sainte-Marie - Illuminations
Michael Hurley

Strange Swedish Folk & Japanese Psyche-Folk

Arbete Och Fritid - Arbete Och Fritid MNW
Hedningarna - Tra
Sodra Bergens Balalaikor - S/T
Lars Hollmer - Vill du Hora Mer

Kan Mikami
Itsutsu No Akai Fusen - New Sky Part 1
Morita Doji

Warped Italian Psyche-Prog-Folk

Claudio Rocchi - Essenza
Alan Sorrenti - Aria
Franco Battiato - Fetus

Honeyed-Voiced Sirens

Turid - Bilder
Mellow Candle
Emtidi
Midwinter - The Waters of Sweet Sorrow
Pentangle - Basket of Light

Free-Folk/Far Out Shamans

The Trees Community - The Christ Tree
The Bummer Road - Suncatcher Mountain
Spires That in the Sunset Rise - This is Fire
Angelite & Huun-Huur Tu - Fly, Fly My Sadness
Robbie Basho - Visions of the Country
Oidupaa Vladimir Oiun - Divine Music From a Jail
L - Holy Letters
Valentin Clastrier - Le Bucher Des Silences

Excellent Traditional Folk/Blues Folk

The Clancy Brothers - Come Fill Your Glass With Us
The Dubliners - Original Dubliners
Christy Moore
Leadbelly - Sings Folk Songs
Elizabeth Cotten - Folksongs & Instrumentals With Guitar
Mississippi John Hurt - Avalon Blues
Charley Patton - Complete Recordings

Compilations

Rembetika - Songs of the Greek Underground
Victrola Favorites - Artifacts from Bygone Days
and of course, Anthology of American Folk music

Yes sir! :thumb:

@dreamcoil I rec'd AC because I couldn't really think of other freak folk albums and AC sighted Comus as an influence at one point so I figure I'd throw in my two cents.

thanks for all that, Rashed. i'm already familiar with a few of those albums, but as for the rest, it'll take me a while to get acquainted with them... i'll try to work slowly through them...


an idea: why not just discuss music and avoid personal insults? (unless you guys enjoy it, then by all means...)
