No More Happy Songs! – The highly acclaimed 5th album from Denmark’s Of The Wand & The Moon is available again! Again Kim Larsen takes another road than the previous albums. 60’s influenced, where the love for Lee Hazelwood and Serge Gainsbourg shines through. Still keeping the dark neofolk roots though, “The Lone Descent” is without doubt the most bleak and melancholic album from Of The Wand & The Moon, and clearly shows Larsen’s brilliant talent as a singer/songwriter. Featuring among others ; Lorenzo Woodrose from Danish psychedelic rock act ‘Baby Woodrose’, Aron from Danish Psych/folk rock act ‘Aron’, Danish Cellist Soma Allpass (Mew, Martin Hall, etc.), trumpet player Bo Rande (The William Blakes, Mew, Blue Foundation), John Murphy (Death In June, Knifeladder, Nico, SPK), John van der Lieth (Sonne Hagal) Anne Eltard (known for various Danish acts and Kim Larsen’s Solanaceae, OTWATM) and :Of The Wand & The Moon: engineer Louise Nipper ‘Alouise’. 2LP comes in glossy spot-varnished gatefold and gold double vinyl ltd. 500. The vinyl edition also comes with an extra exclusive version of “A Pyre Of Black Sunflowers”. Features the artwork of Alex Rose. “THE HARDER YOU STRUGGLE THE TIGHTER THE NOOSE!”
