More new music by Stanislav and The Lion now available

 Corey Stano, the "voice" of Stanislav and The Lion, has penned two new passages of wonderful storytelling prose. I received both her penned pieces and vocal recordings earlier this month and have now found time to compose fitting musical landscapes which, I hope, serve to accentuate her haunting and beautiful words.

 I have chosen to compose a more ambient feel for both pieces, sans Stick or bass, utilizing synths, keeping to less intrusive atmosphere in hopes of lending an eerie quality to Corey's poems. 

 "Verdum" invokes a serenely haunted landscape as Corey weaves her words into a tapestry dotted with the pain and despair of a soldier caught in the throes of World War 1 while a frightened yet emboldened "child" finds her strength in "What Big Teeth You Have".
