One of my favorite Awful Link combos is "bogus co-opted shamanism meets shitty music." So let me introduce you to -- I swear to God -- Gwain Nighthawk. Gwain is super-worldly and into other cultures, as evidenced by the fact that he's a white guy who plays Native American flute and performs ancient African rites without a second thought.
Because Gwain is very spiritual and down to earth, he evidently doesn't know much about technology, which explains why I can't find any of his music on his website OR on YouTube. That's probably for the best because, again, he only plays Native American flute. No one likes listening to just a flute. [Editor's Note: Wait, apparently his husband Blake Octavian Blair, "an eclectic IndoPagan witch, psychic and tarot reader," accompanies him on percussion. Hmm. Still.]
Oh! He also has a Kickstarter to help him record his new album, for which he needs a thousand dollars. Sadly, he has already achieved his goal.
'Gwain Nighthawk has a passion for creating magick through musick!''Blake Octavian Blair played percussion throughout the album, both accompanying and complementing Gwain's engaging flute melodies.'
TOTAL WRECK - crazy-eyed hound is covered in cobwebs, has a vespiary on back, graffiti on side and savage thirst for boat fuel. Frankly, I'm in over my head. He's in room 115 at Motel 6, yours free. 555-2851
Yes, it's the perfect form for surviving a car crash. But it's also the perfect form for so much more, like surviving the trauma of reading any news headline in 2016.
