Beneath Far Gondal's Foreign Sky

by The Goblin Market

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    Weller and Kelly put a lot into this album. You can tell. In places, it is majestic. In others, haunting. In still others, almost joyful. But always it is Weller and Kelly, with the ghosts of the Bronte's hovering close by. They nailed this one. I give it an A with an A+ for effort. Because albums this good don't just happen. They are created. Frank O. Gutch Jr. Rock & Reprise

A Lonely Thing (Official Music Video) youtu.be/jZ3vXvQXUz0

The Goblin Market is a long-time side project of Green Pajamas members Laura Weller and Jeff Kelly. The music draws inspiration from both art and literature. The duo’s third and latest album, Beneath Far Gondal’s Foreign Sky, takes another foray into 19th century England with a focus on the work of the Bronte sisters. The songs focus primarily on Emily, author of Wuthering Heights as well as numerous poems, many of which the subject is the imaginary land of Gondal, a place conceived by Emily in her youth.

Critics speak about The Goblin Market:
On HAUNTED (2005):
"The CD is terrific... The music is haunting and mysterious, and very beautifully executed."
Joyce Carol Oates, Author
"The moodiness, the use of acoustic guitars, piano, and the delicate vocals drench the songs in shadow like a weeping willow from one of Oates' stories."
Mason Jones, www.dustedmagaziine.com
"With strong tunes and a theme that unifies but doesn't overwhelm the music, HAUNTED is as good as...any music released in 2005." Michael Toland, High Bias
4 Stars "...recommended listening for those who'd like to check out music that acknowledges the dark side of life..." Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

On GHOSTLAND (2001) :
"GHOSTLAND crackles with the same morbid Pre-Raphaelite sexual static one imagines buzzed from Christina Rossetti's Stockings." Steward Lee, The London Sunday Times
"For his part, Kelly accomplishes what no Engish professor ever could: giving me an appreciation of the work of Emily Brontë." Adam McKibin, suite101.com
"A perfect record, as such a talented cast would lead us to imagine."
Enrico Ramunni, Rockerilla, Italy
