English-American folk treasure Sharron Krauss, This Old Weird Albion author Justin Hopper and Ghost Box mainstays Belbury Poly is something of a dream combination for fans of the weird and the eerie. The trio make good on their promise with Chanctonbury Rings, an LP that mixes spoken word with musics old and new. While Hopper recounts his experiences on the West Sussex Downs in vivid verse, Krauss busies herself in the background to create stately and almost Medieval-sounding folk pieces. When Belbury Poly enters the fray they do so using buzzing electronics that jar nicely with the rest of the instrumentation. The overall effect of Chanctonbury Rings is a heady brew pitched somewhere between Richard Dawson and Nick Cave & Warren Ellis’ soundtrack work.
