I recently bought an original copy of Catherine Riebero & Alpes “Paix” LP and that is pretty out there, great vocals, great mellow psych in the background. I’d suggest that one although I’m not familiar with the rest of her/their output.
A big favorite is Le Rat Debile 1974, but they're all good.  They finally released a box a couple years ago.

EDIT:  I wasn't aware until today, but in 2015, they released a complete discography 9xCD box set.  The one I mentioned is from 2012 and 4xCD.

Brannten Schnure
Nice low-key low-fi vibe to this bedroom type psych-y folk project, Cthulu Records meets Nekrophile Rekords, very goth, sickly sweet and/or semi-whispered vocals downmixed in beds smoked-out electronic smother. Dear Leader might note the “homemade” qualities, and of these there are plenty and they are persuasive; that is to say, a range of oddities seldom elsewhere heard. So call it folk but also odd electronic experimental project with a drear understated atmosphere for which I am quite the sucker.

Baldruin
Not sure this is anything like folk per se, seems a number of reviewers call it “darkambient”, I suppose owing to the ubiquitous drone elements, but has worked with Brannten Schnure and is well ensconced in the field “bedroom electronics”. Low-key low-fi vibe propelled more by the acoustic surface overlay of off-kilter music-box tendency. Far from what one might call top shelf ambient thus perhaps the folk label, but for me at least strangely addictive Cthulu Records bedroom vibes, I keep coming back trying to decide what it is, exactly, I’m supposed to be listening to.

Was slightly soused when I unloaded the above so thought I'd come back to try to parse where in hell I (imagine I) was coming from. Baldruin. Folk, okay not folk, probably more off-kilter goth pop with marked experimental leanings, plus third party folk associations. But legitimate effort in proper song-writing. Melodic music box elements, rhythms, even occasional vocals. Almost ethereal but not really "pretty" nor ominous. None of that heavy "darkambient" billowing drone texture, more pastoral, achieving drone flavors via competing collage of echoing acoustic elements. Like Brannten Schnure, each song is relatively brief, seldom straying over three minutes, so plenty of opportunity to explore a range tightly encapsulated idears. This might be where The Gray Field Recordings were going before the project disappeared hopefully not for good-

Baldruin and Brannten Schnure came together (once, twice?) in this project-

Diamantener Oberhof
...which sounds pretty much what you’d get if you mixed the two together if, perhaps as these were live stage encounters, more free form in their droning tendencies.

Horse Cult - Day Dreams & Night Mares

I'd bookmarked this one and completely forgot about it.  It's a real beauty.  And Tyrsson of Waldteufel, who has an exceptional ear, is at the studio desk to make the sound vibrant and alive.

It's a shame there are only two tracks up on the Bandcamp because this has quickly become my favourite album of 2018. An apocalyptic and casually spiritual journey through a neo-occult-psych-folk lens, full of pop hooks and at times Cohen-esque writing. If David Tibet made folk music at the height of the psychedelic 60s it might sound something like this. Or, if this had come from that era Phillips would be ranked among highly-acclaimed lost-and-found outsider artists like D.R. Hooker and Skip Spence, and would have no doubt influenced Tibet equally as much as they did. Took a chance on it based on the incredible single “Son of Death” (and accompanying video) and have been constantly listening to a digital copy ever since, and recently received the LP in the mail. It's absolutely worth taking a chance on.

They're finally done digitizing everything? That's an amazing feat.
