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.'

More Awful Link of the Day

This Week on Something Awful...



    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.
