JUJU: Windtorn EP
One of the things that I love about the music blogosphere is the sheer amount of completely and hopelessly obscure bands that can be discovered on any given day. Myriad bands are completely unheard of until one person posts a song or an album, and all of a sudden people want to know more about the artist. Well, I wish I could tell you more about this. I really do. I absolutely love this EP. But unfortunately, there is absolutely no information anywhere. Similar to the Auscult EP that Curious Guy posted a little while back, this record is a gloomy gem with no credits whatsoever. Perhaps somebody out there can help solve the mystery of who recorded this, and where, and if they recorded anything else. I do know that it was released in 1989 on Rakish Records. . The music is nice and dark and very minimalistic. My favorite is Silent in the Shadow of the Sun, a slow-paced gloom-wave classic; Alkanet and Ashodel are also very good.
The songs are:
1. Malicious Iris
2. Silent in the Shadow of the Sun
5. Beloved Moonbeams
