Faun – “Hymn to Pan”

I don’t often venture into neo-gothic/pagan music territory for the simple reason that some of it is very, very amateur…but not Faun. This song is a sparkler. The first time I listened to it, I got the distinct impression of flailing around in a restful daze. It sounds counter-intuitive, but believe it or not, this can be an incredibly productive mindframe. When you’re not constrained by worries about time or a lack of progress, you can actually get down to business. Take a folksy 6-minute journey with me and see what happens.
