How goes it, friend? If you have landed here and haven’t yet seen our About page (it’s riveting, be sure to wander on over sometime!) A Hex On Your Head is hosted by Meghan Wood and Katie Metcalfe, the creatures behind the dark folk/ritualistic ambient band Cave Mouth.
A Hex On Your Head is where the dark musical oddities which inhabit our skulls will be complied, spoken about, and celebrated. We’ll be blogging about black metal, dark folk, folk, and ambient music (though expect us to stray from time to time) as well as related podcasts and the like.
There will be a ‘Hex of the Day,’ interviews with bands whose music possesses our souls, features where we get all wet-eyed about albums that ‘made us,’ and reviews where we dissect releases we’ve found ourselves enslaved by. There will also be Hexlists – lots of them – from us and from guests.
A Hex On Your Head was something we’d been thinking about doing for quite some time, but, from Katie’s side, depression had other ideas. All we could do was wait it out.
Here we are though, several months after the idea for the blog was born, and we’re more than ready to ignite a black flame and carry it high for the music accompanying us as we navigate the twisting trails of our weird lives.
We figured one of the best ways for you to get to know us better would be by making up a Hexlist of sounds we’ve been savouring recently. You can find it on Spotify. Anyway, that’ll do for now. Do yell in our direction if there’s something you think should be residing inside our heads.
Katie & Meghan.
