HOUSED IN A REVERSE BOARD PRINTED OUTER SLEEVE WITH BLACK POLYLINED INNER AND DOWNLOAD CODE Taras Bulba featuring ex Earthling Society head Fred Laird return with their second album 'Soul Weaver'.

Soul-Weaver was recorded between February and April of 2020. The album is a sharp contrast to the Taras Bulba debut.

Whereas 'One' was a laid back psilocybic novelty travelogue; Soul-weaver is more guitar driven dream like psychedelia, mixing 60's garage rock, shoegaze, bucolic west coast acid folk and ambient feedback.

The album builds on song structures instead of drifting instrumentals prevalent on our debut and is an indication of the path I want to go musically.

Constructing the album in such a short time and under lockdown restrictions changed the way the album took shape.

There were no drum sessions between myself and Jon due to the social distance rule and therefore percussion had to be constructed from drum machines or 'found' from previous sessions and cannibalised.

So, in some ways this is more a solo record (Jon has never heard the songs). It is a guitar album whereas 'One' was a rhythm/percussion focused recording.
