smoke fairies

Quite simply enchanting. Following on from our mentioning the garlands festive fancy as part of the snowflakes Christmas singles box, the label have been in touch with links for the three errant winter warmers that make up and complete this rather wonderful set. As previously these releases feature an original on one side and a cover on the other and arrive as limited edition 500 only gems all pressed up on snow white wax. Amid this little treasure box a nugget from the adorable Smoke Fairies here accompanied by Neil Walsh on viola duties. ’simple feeling’ is utterly adoring, a timeless trimming of ethereal folk, all at once ghostly and alluring as though some siren-esque calling card from a fog bound enchanted woodland stirring shyly like a youthful Laura J Martin retracing as were the snow pressed footprints of a teenage Kate Bush and concocting spell crafting love potions from musical recipes made up of equal parts Tunng, Mellow Candle, Fairport Convention and Men An Tol. A bewitching bouquet oozing in a fuzzy inner warmth. Over on the flip incidentally a cover of ’I wonder as I wandr’ alas no sound clips but I bet its beautiful.
