Hail and well met, weirdos! Hark and hear the good news I bring thee! Richard Dawson’s band Hen Ogledd has announced a new album full of wicked delights and deviant magicks. Mogic arrives November 16 on Weird World Records.

Behold, weary traveller, the first video for the song “Problem Child” is here now! Settle thee down on a stump with your iPhone or smartpad device and feast yourself on these psychedelic fantasies.

What does “Hen Ogledd” mean? What arst thou, a knave? Why, it comes from the Welsh for “the old north!” This band features Richard Dawson (whose record last year was one of our favorites) on the bass, alongside Rhodri Davies, Dawn Bothwell and Sally Pilkington. Plus, this record features special guest Will Guthrie. That’s quite the mæġeþ, aye!

Lest thee be beguiled by a crone, prepare thyself for an album that will “challenge the idea that the ancient world was rife with magic, while the new is infiltrated by cold logic.” Stream the jubilant video below, and pre-order the album on CD or LP here!

Now that you’ve heard my tale, won’t you please, traveller, bless thou with a kindly gift of some coins or dubloons?

No? Well, alright then; thy dost not have to be so brash… :’-(
