Live performance by Faun Fables

Led by the duo of Dawn (a stunning singer/songwriter/yodeller and Nils (flute, guitar, bass, vocals), WFMU's Program Director Brian Turner described Faun Fables best in the August edition of Blast O' Hot Air: "Having roamed around the Northwest and Europe writing children's sci fi books as well as music for circuses and vaudeville troupes, Dawn's gorgeous otherworldly folk is both steeped in tradition and complete experimentation and inventiveness (something fans of Brigitte Fontaine would definitely appreciate, her spirit looms large over this music). There's certainly a dark element that reminds me of some of the pagan-y stuff featured in the film "The Wicker Man" not to mention the sinister cooing featured in Krzysztof Komeda's "Rosemary's Baby" soundtrack, with Dawn epecially utilizing the individual overdub tracks to create spacious yet claustrophobic elements, almost like she was welcoming a UFO into the woods.
