Review: Childhood by Haint

Atlanta GA’s Haint emerged some years ago from the ashes of one of the earliest Gypsy Farm groups, Ghost Lights.

The latter of this two-song release is titled Childhood and from the beginning, sets a somber tone with it’s scattered organs and a vulnerably displayed for all to hear.

Vaguely hovering above the curious tone, you’ll find a melody that holds everything together within a basket of sound, threating to rip at any moment.

“H/|][|\|T is a monster of the Immaterium. Daemon of Terminus Gap– nexus between worlds. She is apart of things and integral. She is screaming flame and burning sugar sweet.” – Bandcamp page

RELEASE: Tape Feed, Vol: 1

Introducing… a tape that feeds!

After last year’s successful donation to the local food bank, we staffed our producer Willie Shears with the task of assembling years worth of various recordings from deep within the Gypsy Farm vault into a tangible compilation for your enjoyment but also, the benefit of Feeding America, a nonprofit organization networking with 200 food banks.

The result is Tape Feed, Vol: 1. Each limited edition cassette is a direct, real-time copy of the original hi-fee-fi-fo-fum master recordings and even include a digital download to boot.

With appearances by Old Smokey, Vincas, Nate & the Nightmares, the Humms, Sea of Dogs, Sweet Auburn String Band, 432 Sessions, Pine Tar Rage, Koko Beware & the Haunted Head.

Shears’ selection of GF recordings span a whole decade from 2010 through 2020, and all in all recorded at GF-HQ with the exception of Nate & The Nightmares – Everyday recorded live at Georgia theatre in 2014 while opening for Charles Bradley.

With exclusive tracks like Vincas – Phantasma (Live at Gypsy Farm) and the traditional bluegrass arrangements of 432 sessions – Buffalo Skinners (Jed & Harry Clark, Cory Walker & Jeff Partin) you can rest assured that it’s going to be an eclectic sum of tracks.

Enjoy Tape Feed, Vol 1 and simultaneously help deflect hunger, food waste & climate change by donating to the local food bank.
