Schwarzerdragoner Saw You a long time ago live in Nevers, France. The memory of Your unique Performance still lasts in my Memory. I'm surprised that You made a new Album, it sounds wonderful, melancholy, dark and deep. It touchs my Soul and maybe it doesnt take long time to have it on my Turntable. :-)
Best Regards, stay well.

hoursofthemind RAIJ is one of the few neofolk projects making interesting music right now. A great example of beginning at a common starting point, influences, and set of problems, but arriving at something formally distinct. Whereas Beauty Will Save The World was generally more abstract, high-concept, and mystical, Songs of Yearning is a bit more predictable and song-based. If you have black-and-white dreams of a lost and better world, this is for you.

about

Songs of Yearning is the fourth RAIJ album and perhaps their most coherent single body of work to date. An enticing combination of eastern religious sounds and iconography, acoustic and electric instrumentation, and lilting, meditative vocals, Songs of Yearning features pieces in no fewer than six different languages: Greek, French, English, Latin, a Finnish dialect of Swedish, and Russian.
IMPORTANT:
If you order the 2xLP or 2xCD physical edition we'll send you a Bandcamp code for the extra album "Nocturnes" but we'll be doing this manually so please be patient. If you've not received it after a couple of days drop us a line.
Please note that, while we're releasing digitally on Bandcamp now, all PHYSICAL copies are preorders and we don't yet have the records, nor do we know when we'll get them from the pressing plants - pretty much the whole music industry is in the same boat with this. We'll ship them as soon as we can but it may be a while - you all know why.

Thank you.
