Smoke Fairies - Blood Speaks (2012)

Smoke Fairies are a blues/folk duo from the UK, forming in the mid 2000s, and championed by the Longpigs and Pulp guitarist Richard Hawley.

Musically, Smoke Fairies incorporate bluesy pop music with the meter and melodies of English folk music. This is pretty laid-back and stripped back music with nothing extraneous and no pretensions. I am more than a little reminded of late 70s Fleetwood Mac. And that is more than a good enough reason to like the album, in my opinion.

Definitely worth a listen.

Favourite tracks: Take Me Down When You Go, Version Of The Future, Awake
