Observe Ember Weeks
L’Animaux Tryst Field Recordings LTFR-1204 

Beautiful new broadcast from the heart of the new weird, Maine in New England. Cursillistas is Matt Lajoie, who also records as Herbcraft, but here he is primarily concerned with rural spectra and widescreen re-imaginings of the revelatory potential of dosed folk forms. The LP opens with a mesmeric slice of slow-motion banjo, drone, Spacemen/Skip Spence vocals and ascending astral Americana that comes over like the Sandy Bull Hallelujah Choir in space before dropping into linked choirs of wordless female vocals that melt all over a raga guitar/vocal hallucination that’s straight out of the Jacob Olausson/Joshua Burkett school of mesmerising acoustic sorcery, complete with whistling! The LP consist of stray tracks mopped up from cassette and CD-R releases, all gathered for the first time on vinyl and bookended with brand new studio material and as such it feels like a travelogue, the music seeming to mutate in front of your ears, moving from whimsical/forlorn acoustic poetry w/a mystic/childlike edge that could almost pass for (UK) Kaleidoscope through electric/acoustic orchestral imaginings that touch on the kind of virtual big-band folk gnosis of The Tower Recordings. A phenomenal record with a singular psychedelic atmosphere, hand-numbered edition of only 225 copies with individually silkscreened sleeves on art paper, every one unique. Highly recommended. 




De Colores!

If you are a Cursillista, then this rosary is for you! This rosary has 8mm White Cats Eye Ave beads, and 10mm Rainbow Striped resin Pater beads. The rosary center is a Holy Spirit Dove that says Come Holy Ghost Enlighten Us on the back. The cross is a silver-toned Cursillo crucifix with the words Christ Is Counting On You on the back.

This rosary would make a great gift for a person on their Fourth Day journey.

It was handmade with love and prayer.

Please note that due to the higher cost of the Cursillo crosses and rainbow beads, these prayer beads are more expensive than my other rosaries.

Like all Degli Angeli Prayer Beads, these will arrive in a black velvet drawstring pouch.

This rosary is available in my etsy shop.

Just listed this as a made to order item on Degli Angeli’s etsy shop! Perfect necklace for a Cursillista! This item will use the buyer’s cross instead of a stock one.
