The voice and vision of Clodagh Simonds are the firm foundation upon which Fovea Hex stands. Weaving a mystical tapestry of ambient and folk music, the sound is both familiar and strange. At times it calls to mind the music of Nico, Jarboe, and Miranda Sex Garden, but those comparisons just hint at the depth and beauty demonstrated. Collaborators include Brian Eno, Roger Eno, Robert Fripp, Carter Burwell, Matmos, and members of Hafler Trio and Nurse With Wound. Excellent interviews with Simonds can be read here and here. Below are five timeless tracks which I've been enjoying lately.
