Overview

We Bring You a King with a Head of Gold: Dark Britannica II, the sequel to 2007's John Barleycorn Reborn, collects 34 tracks over two discs that explore the latest in modern U.K. acid-folk. Utilizing both traditional and contemporary folk melodies, and staying true to the pagan mythologies and dark imagery of scenes both past and present, the featured artists, who include Autumn Grieve, the Fates, Tinkerscuss, Kate Harrison, Barron Brady, and more, strike a nice balance between Luddite instrumentation (acoustic guitar and tambourine) and darkwave-inspired goth rock (keyboards, samples), resulting in a solid set of sacrificial crop rock to ring in the solstice of your choice.
