The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.125: At the Mountains of Madness by Childe Roland
Whilst not a concept album per se, Childe Rolande’s At the Mountains of Madness and Other Strange Songs (and released by Rainfall Records) offers the discerning listener a selection of Lovecraftian, Lovecraft-adjacent, and weird fiction-inspired tunes with psychedelic folk-rock stylings. The cover also sports a fantastic piece of artwork by Steve Lines depicting the title track. This is a nice companion piece to Strange Aeons: a double-album anthology of Lovecraftian tunes and readings also released by Rainfall, and which featured as one of 2016’s Lovecraftian Things a Day. You can purchase copies of both albums here.
