Heathen Harvest Walpurgisnacht Sampler Now Online

Walpurgisnacht, the second darkest night of the calendar. Another time when the boundary between the worlds of the light and the black is open to permutation and rupture.

Heathen Harvest brings you our first compilation honouring this great spiritual event. This time round, we have more exclusives and more bespoke tracks alongside a great many familiar numbers carefully selected by the Heathen Harvest jounalistic collective. As usual, all the music here is perfectly apt for not only respecting this important occasion, but for giving a rounded overview of exactly the kinds of work we cover here at Heathen Harvest.

We wish you all an excellent Walpurgisnacht this 30th April, and hope you can spend some of it experiencing the sounds within this compilation.

This sampler is intended to be heard as one unbroken trajectory.
