Hawthonn + more at the Unitarian on Sunday 28th November 2021

Hawthonn will be touring in support of their new LP 'Earth Mirror'
'An Earth Mirror is a magical device. Found in German occult literature, it is a clod of earth sandwiched between layers of glass. Gazing into the Earth Mirror is said to reveal the locations of hidden treasures. Magical visions and the revelation of mysteries in the landscape are two prominent features of Earth Mirror, the new album by Layla & Phil Legard alias Hawthonn, and their second for Ba Da Bing.
Somewhere between moon musick and ethereal pop, the songs of Earth Mirror reflect the band’s transition from studio project to live performers in the wake of 2018’s Red Goddess (of this men shall know nothing). The themes for the songs on Earth Mirror reflect the Legards’ experiences, magical and mundane, in the wake of Red Goddess and as the world then headed full-tilt into pandemic.
On Earth Mirror, Layla’s heavenly voice accompanies a sonic palette encompassing field recordings of ice cracking on an ancient Corpse Road, mysterious hymns sung in disused medieval chapels, spectrally processed horse shrieks, electronic textures, rumbling organ, crystalline electric piano, and modulated jaw harp. No guitars appear on this album. Nor do conventional song-structures: the compositions of Earth Mirror organically developed from dreams (‘Dream Cairn’), experiments with inducing magical visions (‘Odo Galse’, ‘Vehiel’), ruminations on lunar beings (‘Crowned Light’, ‘Circles of Light’), and ecological anxiety (‘Cat’s Cradle’). Their literary influences include English witch Andrew Chumbley, nihilist philosopher Emil Cioran, the Enochian language of John Dee and Edward Kelly, and even Kurt Vonnegut.'

There will be space heaters and blankets, but I’ve been warned it can get very cold in the church. Please bring warm clothes!
There’ll be no parking at the church itself. Please either come by public transport or you can park in the Morrison’s car park a couple of minutes up the road.
There’ll be a bar with bottles of Eagles Cragg ale + a beer on tap. The show isn’t for profit so any money spent on the bar will go to bands / the Unitarian / putting on the next show. There’ll be tea and coffee too, but you’re welcome to bring soft drinks, snacks etc. Please bring cash for the bar. Alternatively you can pay on paypal. There won’t be any wifi in the church.
We’ll need some volunteers to help out on the door and bar. ~1 hour bar/door shift = free entry to the gig and some drinks. I might also need someone to help transporting a few things. Also, if anyone is up for recording/filming the gig that’d be ace!
You are welcome to bring your kids to the gig for free. Please send me a message if you plan on doing so, so we can keep an eye on the capacity.
It’s advised that you bring a mask to wear while entering and moving around the venue, however this is down to personal choice. It is also recommended that you take a lateral flow test before attending. There will be enough space to sit in your groups / bubble in the church if you wish to keep socially distanced. You will be asked to sanitise your hands when entering the church.
First band will start at 3pm on the dot. Order and times will be announced closer to the date
Tickets are selling well so be sure to buy soon to avoid being disappointed! Any more questions send me a message or email crushzonerecords@gmail.com
