Tunes for a Monday Morning

Today's tunes are...

Above: "Willow Tree" from Unkle Vanya, a terrific new alt-folk band from central Scotland. The video, according to the band, was shot in a mystery wood in deepest Renfrewshire.

Below: "Otmoor Forever," performed by members of Andy Letcher's wonderful band, Telling the Bees -- an Oxford-based group playing "darkly crafted folk."  (I highly recommend the band's two CDs.) The song is based on a true story from the 1800s.
