featuring a session from The Diamond Family Archive

Described as Psych-folk, Freak-folk, Alt-folk Laurence Collyer is a reclusive British artist who writes, records and performs music and folk-song using the rather grand moniker, The Diamond Family Archive.

Laurence has been involved in the DIY music scene for many years and was the co-founder of Woodland Recordings. The Diamond Family Archive are currently releasing records, tapes and CDs through a handful of labels (Dinosaur Club {USA}, Tired Trails {USA}, A Beard of Snails {Denmark}, Bleeding Hearts Recordings {UK}).

“…this is haunting, intense, spectral folk but with a distinctly British sound… imagine Mark Kozelek’s haunting folk with elements of Robert Wyatt’s heart wrenching vocals combined with Collyer’s beautiful songs…” Rough Trade



Thank you for carrying me gently through another ugly Monday. SFR first-timer. I like it.
