O Love, let’s dance!
We live with hope, so never fear to fly.
Omens are a second chance.
And symbols never die.
“Jazz & Mai” by Dr. Mary Crowell, a waltz for my favorite pair of sapphic death omens. Jazz and May inhabit Seanan McGuire’s October Daye books.
Lyrics available on Bandcamp.
via @rocket-song-acoustic: Kipling and 12-string guitar. For some reason I can’t play this one without thinking of Seanan’s Toby Daye series.
“The Fairies’ Siege,” words by Rudyard Kipling, music and performance by Mark Horning
The Fairies Siege
Ominous, beautiful, and technically experimental.
Apparently, this is based on something by Seanan McGuire, and maybe it makes more specific sense if one has read this thing by Seanan McGuire, but out of context it’s just haunting.
