Heathen Harvest has put together a good analysis of the neo-folk idea that runs the gamut from the misanthropic noise of Boyd Rice to martial pop Laibach to electronic oddness of Psychic TV and what seems to be countless others. While I haven't read the specific Zizek and Foucault writings, this article does a good job in explaining the ideas as opposed to most academic work that all too often "comment upon other commentors". Namely, Zizek's own annoying obsession on Lacan's critique of Marx critique of well, I dunno what the fuck.
I'll be making most posts/pieces about neo-folk in the upcoming weeks & months.
