The Book of the Lost was the result of a year-long collaboration between Emily Jones and The Rowan Amber Mill. The Book of the Lost is a complete soundtrack to a set of imaginary folk horror films and an accompanying TV series, and was born out of a shared love of classic '60s and '70s British horror films, and most especially, those of the genre loosely described as folk horror.
"Imaginary '70s and '80s Brit horror film themes. Romantic folk narratives with a dark-woods chill of pastoral melancholy. The die-cut limited edition (containing lobby cards for each film) is particularly lovely. ***" - MOJO magazine.
"Ambitiously complex.. (the music) features lashings of Paul Giovanni-style melodicism and Marc Wilkinson-inspired spookiness." - fRoots Magazine.
"An utterly spellbinding CD. The Book of the Lost spools out among the most intriguing, intense and, most of all, alluring CDs you'll hear all year." - Dave Thompson, Goldmine magazine.
"I haven't heard anything so evocative of a golden era of leftfield British films and music, even down to the Oliver Postgate-style narration. If you didn't know any different, you'd be adamant this is a lost soundtrack from a cult classic. Utterly brilliant, it deserves a huge audience." - Lee Trewhela, Western Morning News.
