Music of the Lore

Totems of the Lore

The secret score to Lore of the Underlings is an unwitting gift of these artists and their music. These are the voices and themes that breathe life into the beings of this once-and-future, near-and-far world.

Original music – Here’s my own little theme for the Lore…

And a pair of wee tunes with a pirate-like vibe (and echoes of Monty Python) sung by “the Guard” of the Lore… top of the Syland pop charts for four straight fortnights…

  1. how weird i was just listening to flyleaf. they are so talented. i also love Apocalyptica. and a lot of the others you have on here. good choices. CHEERS!

    • Thanks CJG. New Flyleaf album due later this year called “New Horizons” — I’m looking forward to that. If you like Bat for Lashes (from your writing I think you’re bound to love her “Two Suns”), there’s a new album in October. And did you check out my very goofy video with the Apocalyptica background music? So not the drama!
