On the eve of embarking upon their nationwide tour, recent Jack White and Richard Hawley collaborators, The Smoke Fairies return once more to perform live in session on H.G. this afternoon. Their debut album “Through Low Light And Trees” (V2 Records) is an exquisitely shivery blend of alternative folk-rock and a more humid, bluesy brand of Americana, a sound both eerily ancient and thrillingly modern, with beautifully interlocking harmonies and guitar parts behind the spectral melodies.
Also, making her debut appearance on the show, we have the quirky soul / pop of Tanya Auclair. The lo-fi adventures of London singer-songwriter Tanya Auclair are a beguiling mix of playful DIY drums, layers of voice, intricate uke and guitar melodies and touches of electronica. Citing influences as wide-ranging as Fats Waller, Fever Ray, Matthew Herbert, Juana Molina and E.S.G, her open instinctive approach shows in the territory she covers from the 60’s doo-wop, delicate folk, to feverish rhythms and oscillating synths.
Her 6-track EP Thrum is available for FREE download on Bandcamp ‘HERE‘.
Plus, a live telephone interview with Ferris Blood the creator of the radio show Dear Puppeteer (the audio offshoot to Depressing Comics) that is currently being aired on Resonance FM every Tuesday evening between 9.00-9.30pm.
