All Music Guide:
East Coast neo-psychedelic folk outfit Fern Knight were formed in 1999 by multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter Margie Wienk. Taking a cue from classic British folk acts like Pentangle, Comus, and the Sallyangie, Fern Knight's reverb-drenched, modernist twist on '60s mysticism is steeped in the dark, whimsical majesty of current acid folk revivalists like Faun Fables, Vetiver, and Espers. The group's seductive debut, Seven Years of Severed Limbs, was released in 2003 on Normal Records, followed in 2006 by Music for Witches and Alchemists and the eponymous Fern Knight in 2008, the latter two of which appeared on the VHF label.
