Leslie Fish’s “Polaris/Recall” based on a fragment of verse in the story by H.P. Lovecraft, “Polaris”
(the story is good except for the racism, which is a pretty good summary of a lot of Lovecraft)
Do you have any idea how hard it is to find serious Lovecraft filk? Do you?
So, uh. There’s an entire album of these and I had no idea. Lovecraftian sea shanties, as sung by sailors out of Innsmouth the like.
This is the track they offered as a free sample, but it’s only a matter of time before I break down and post more of it not really legally. SO – STOP ME FROM BEING ILLEGAL: BUY THE ALBUM
(For any Assassin’s Creed fans, you’ll recognize some good tunes from the game: Spanish Ladies, General Taylor, Leave Her Johnny, Haul Away Joe, and, of course, Drunken Sailor. For Stan Rogers fans, there’s a version of Rolling Down to Old Maui. For everybody, there are sea shanties. With eldritch horror. And I’m so happy. You have no idea.)
