A Brief Introduction to FAERIEPUNK

Sounds Like Faeriepunk

"Faerie music is the wind... and their movement is the play of shadow cast by moonlight, or starlight, or no light at all. Faerie lives like a ghost beside us, but only the city remembers. But then the city never forgets anything." -- Charles de Lint, "Ghosts of Wind and Shadow"

Faeriepunk as a musical genre is incredibly difficult to pin down; and I really would insist it's more of a feeling or 'flavour' than an actual genre. Here is a playlist that covers some of my favourite tracks that have that ethereal edge or storytelling quality and make you want to grow wings and are...well, faeriepunkish.
