Sundark and Riverlight stylised "Sun☽ark and Riverlight" is a double album released by English-Irish singer-songwriter Patrick Wolf on 15 October 2012. under his own label, Bloody Chamber Music, and Essential Music. The double album will mark ten years since Wolf's debut studio album, Lycanthropy and will contain re-recorded, acoustic versions of chosen songs from the previous ten years.
Sundark and Riverlight and The Ghost Region. 2017 - Edmund Burke Medal from Trinity College Historical Society. Wolf began work on his next album, initially titled Battle, immediately after The Magic Position tour ended. The album was originally conceived as a political album. The focus then shifted to the depression experienced by Wolf during the tour. However, before entering the studio, he fell in love, changing the direction of the album again, and eventually providing enough material for two releases.
Sundark and Riverlight is first and foremost Patrick Wolf the artist and musician, and it’s everything one could have asked for. Sundark and Riverlightis the most intimate record of Wolf’s career, and a celebration of his 10 years as a recording artist. To mark the occasion, he decided to revisit certain selections from his discography, all with his current mindset. From years of touring and keeping these songs close, things have changed, both for Wolf and these pieces. One’s initial response to an album such as this may be either general indifference or complete aversion. And truly, it’s quite understandable. When musicians pull the acoustic re-recordings of old material it’s generally a half-assed affair, but it isn’t in Patrick Wolf’s nature to half-ass anything. With Sundark and Riverlight the artist approaches each song with a mindset of creation, rather than slapping on a new coat of paint.

That strange guitar-type instrument Patrick Wolf is holding in the picture below is a Gusli. It was given to him by a Russian fan during the 2011 protests, moments before the anti-gay bill was passed in St Petersburg. It’s not the only notable instrument on new album ‘Sundark And Riverlight’. Wolf also plays Peter Gabriel’s Bösendorfer Grand and the folky bodhran and hammer dulcimer. The album is a double-CD collection of pre-recorded, acoustic versions of chosen songs from the last ten years
Patrick Wolf fans are familiar with his constant re-invention, so this revisiting of songs from previous long-players will come as no surprise. However, as Wolf is equally known for theatrics, followers may be surprised at the acoustic nature of these re-recorded songs, released to commemorate a decade in the business. against the digital age of Auto-Tune and mass-produced electronic landfill music. Despite channelling Blackadder for the cover, Sundark and Riverlight is thankfully more chamber pop than chamber pot. It's an elegant collection, but an acquired taste. Those unfamiliar with Wolf are advised to begin with the Riverlight side, or last year's successful Lupercalia album. This stopgap album risks losing commercial momentum, but is a reminder that despite a tendency towards self indulgence, Wolf remains a songwriter to admire.
