Smoke Fairies
Wild Winter

Smoke Fairies have produced a rather atypical Christmas album this season, focusing on more on the dark, the melancholy, the bittersweet aspects of the holiday. Wild Winter isn’t as morose as that might sound though: it carries both complementary sides of winter, the bleak and the bright. On Full Time Hobby, white...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Gastown/ River Song

Smoke Fairies have the endorsement of Jack White (credited as drummer/multi instrumentalist/producer) on their new single 'Gastown'. They are Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies who have been crafting haunting left field folk together since their school days. 'Gastown' is a laid back folk rock effort featuring some nifty Crosby, Stills and Nash-es...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Smoke Fairies

Smoke Fairies are one of those groups whose move towards the mainstream has been slow and steady. Each album seems to be more palatable to the mainstream than the previous one but they never do anything drastic enough to make you want to scream 'sell out' at them. I've written the words 'bit dull' on the post-it note on the front of the CD promo...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Simple Feeling / Wonder As I Wander

You don't have to fear that you get any Christmas goo here. No jingle bells in sight, no reindeers jumping out of your speakers. Once again our beloved Folk-Blues-Ladies add another two exciting songs to their amazing catalogue. Both are rather quiet songs that might put you into a mood that you associate with Christmas. So it fits the topic som...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Blood Speaks

The opening track on this much more fully realised album by the once-folk minstrels sounds so much like someone else it's driving me crazy. It doesn't rock as such but it's nicely upbeat. They now inhabit a sound which could be said to be somewhere between Sandy Denny, Kate Bush and class...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Strange Moon Rising

Not sure what to make of these two. They seem to get plaudits across the board and old Jack White has been sniffing around (well they are two lovely ladies and we know how Jack is). The music is a pleasant slightly bluesy affair and if witch-step was a term for post Stevie Nicks ethereal, patchouli scented hippified folk performed by beguil...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Storm Song

The newie from the Smoke Fairies is a dark, lustful ode to one of the female Gladiators...only joshing. It is a dark lustful ode to something though. It reminds me of a modern day Fleetwood Mac with the folk music setting turned way up. It's a really nice song actually. The vocals sound sumptuous and the gently plucked guitars and subtle percuss...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Hotel Room

The new single from the Smoke Fairies is sweet and pastoral. Yet it has more of a modern sound, which is a contradiction I know but as Mr Bruce Hornsby said 'that's just the way it is'. It's so sophisticated and professional....its like a speed date with a power broker. Its a quiet and understated single that is quite involving. It has some grea...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Sunshine

Drama drama drama. Smoke Fairies have a new 7" single out called 'Sunshine' which vocally gives nods to Fairport Convention/Sandy Denny, Christine McVie & Steeleye Span over some churning, steady folk rock. It's an earthy, brooding number which I could see appealing to fans of the more recent Espers material. An extra CD is enclosed for th...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Frozen Heart EP

The Smoke Fairies have a new single out. Frozen heart is nice and it's one of those fancy 7"/CD packs so you play the tracks on every different machine in your house. Sometimes people are thinking of you... and not in a bad way either. Some people are genuinely on the lookout for you. You really shouldn't be so cynical.. it's not going to get ...view item »

Smoke Fairies
Living With Ghosts

Smoke Fairies next. A husky voiced lady attempts seduction of Dangerous Brian's ears to no real avail cos she's not singing in a Lancashire accent and the slidey/steel sounding guitar is a bit too windswept American and doesn't sound like The Fall trapped in a bin outside a newsagents in Salford at 2 am on a rainy Wednesday. It's pretty damned...view item »

Strange The Things

Now a lovely duo of ladies called Smoke Fairies with their album Strange The Things. Have a listen if you care to www.myspace/smokefairies . Always nice to hear two females so entwined they come as one. As one lifts, one falls and then they are in unison making beautiful patterns grinding deep into the fabric all to the backing of a couple acoustic...view item »
