I'm not sure how everyone else feels about them but I always get a kick out of Death In Rome.  They do Neofolk covers of pop songs.  If I am remembering correctly it is made up of members of Death In June so if you dig their output you will probably at least find this new stuff to be mildly amusing.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwYrOCB0_To

quick search yeilds no thread for hippy singer/songwriters like Doug, Tony & David. any fanatics or are we all “too tough” to enjoy old men w 12 string sitting under tree? honestly enjoy Di6 albums like Rose Cloud or Nada but not so keen on All Pigs. not familiar with much else outside the well known albums of the genre (thunder perfect mind , trees in winter etc etc)

so in short,  looking for suggestions. new acts and obscure gems from past all welcome.

Changes, Fire+Ice all you need basically, Pyhä Kuolema for more recent stuff

funny to see these three acts listed together. all three came up in recent conversation between myself and my other half. i've always considered Di6 to be one of my top 3 favorites, but PK has quickly become a runner-up, simply in the respect that i can put them on in any circumstance, regardless of mood and always want to listen to it. was unaware of the Process ties regarding Changes until recently, which lends a bit more to their music for me. decent album, although nothing beats the title track imo.

For the Finns, there is two new neofolk themed interviews here. Tervahäät and Pyhä Kuolema. For those who don't understand Finnish, there is just couple clips from yet-to-be-released 3rd Pyhä Kuolema album!

Been really into Jännerwein, Forseti, and In Gowan Ring lately. Slipping into Autumn has always got me listening to more of this genre.

Really dig Darkwood, although I am not sure how big the appeal would be outside of their homeland, as the lyrics are a major part. A really nice display of how very basic Neofolk elements, i.e. Guitar, one or two other instruments (violin, sax, drums etc) and voice can make for an incredibly well-rounded and somewhat bombastic whole, when they are utilised perfectly.
Apart from that, Neofolk is THE ultimate hit and miss genre for me personally. Stuff is either amazing or kind of unlistenable heh

i released this a couple of months ago, may be of interest to some. danish neofolk w/an emphasis on the "industrial folk" aspect. i still have copies if anything is of interest, also i got another tape from the band, that is quite different (more "traditional" NF). (hopefully) enjoy: https://brutalisttapes.bandcamp.com/album/forgotten-youth-the-duty-of-love

I myself love most:
- Death in June
- Et Nihil (just one album and EP, but extremely good)
- Of the Wand & the Moon
- Sol Invictus
- Les Chasseurs de la Nuit (Kim Larsen from OTWATM side-project)
- Luftwaffe
- Changes
- Herr Lounge Corps (he worked with Douglas on Death in June - Peaceful Snow album, great solo albums, worth checking)
- Rome
- By the Spirits (cool one-man band from Poland)
- Darkwood (new album is really good)
- Der Blutharsch
- Sixth Comm

Also from stuff close to neofolk: Spiritual Front, King Dude, Steve von Till, Skin (side-project of Michael Gira and Jarboe from Swans, released 2 albums around 1990).

I also record myself some neofolk with my band Grave of Love, we got 2 EPs released so far and in Spring 2021 Only the Sun Knows will release our debut album. Here is some teaser: https://youtu.be/IcDk15xZD84
and music: http://graveoflove.bandcamp.com

I also made year ago a Spotify playlist with various neofolk music: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4slkhHWFmRdmNpzRBswWI7?si=rvajYVpORhSflyOQTNMRbA

new Brendan Perry album is Rebetiko Greek music.  Dead Can Dance.  I've only listened to the first half.  I'd have no issue with another synth-heavy album, but this is fine too.
