Some incredible illustrations by Kay Nielsen from East of the Sun and West of the Moon: Old Tales from the North, a collection of Scandinavian fairy tales originally published in 1914, and reissued several years back by Calla Editions.
I don’t know fuck-all about art, but as a lover of Scandinavia, fairy tales, and Golden Age illustration, it’s safe to say I neeeeeeeed this book. If I stopped buying liquor for, like, a week, I could probably afford it. Also my birthday is coming up in 8 months…

I knew I would be on board with this EP from the title, lovely, crushing funeral doom from mass, obsessed with the use of the choir vocals on “The Cortex”, and the helicopter drums throughout. So excellent, will certainly be playing this as I lie in my candle-lit bedroom tonight and think about all my many failures. Dooooooooom.
