Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This Mortal Coil was a project uniting a range of alternative musicians under the same label. Of these, my love is not Cocteau Twins, but Australian band (ultimately duo) Dead Can Dance. There is no lead singer, in the next, Lisa Gerrard sings in her etheral voice.

Dead Can Dance: Persephone

Uhm... I mean, Dead Can Dance: The Host Of Seraphim.

But having mentioned it, Persephone is another great song, again with Lisa Gerrard singing:

Another In Wales track--starts with bass, then a voice and slight backing of keyboard--a deeper tone.  In Wales, if you've been listening, how are you getting on with the various pitches--(the singing in Wada Na Tod is very high pitched!)

Don't fight forces, use them R. Buckminster Fuller.

Hello!  Haven't had a chance to listen so far.  That's what the weekends are for!  I'll get to it today hopefully.

Very bulgarian overtones!

Really lovely scenes from bicycle to motorbike about four minutes in.  Lovely voice--excellent arrangement for the voice.

I thought you'd like this, but wow, could it be you haven't heard of Dead Can Dance before??? If I understood that right, then I highly recommend that you get at least one full album, one from the eighties, say Within The Realm of a Dying Sun.

The video BTW is a sequence from the film Baraka.
