Smoke Fairies: Interview

Smoke Fairies music is a beguiling blend of folk harmonies and blues guitars. In 2010 they released their debut album Through Low Light & Trees having previously recorded with both Richard Hawley and Jack White. We spoke to Katherine and Jessica before their Dublin gig in December 2010.

new Film School


It may not be the most original piece of music making it’s way around the internet and airwaves these days however with a Hooky-esque bassline, backing vocals that could be genuinely lifted from the Postal Service album and, I will admit ,a hint of something similar to LCD Soundsystem (who I take joy in disliking) – this is simply an indie pop track but a damn fine one at that. Their new album Fission is out this month.

Film School – Heart Full Of Pentagons:


Menomena’s new album “Mines” is out now and although there is many a corker featured, this video and track is still one of my favourites. From their 2007 album “Friend and Foe”, above is Wet and Rusting and below is some of their new material. Like their previous albums, their latest is quite the grower with more melodies and hooks revealing themselves with every listen. If you like what you hear you should also listen to some Ramona Falls and Lackthereof which have busied two of the band’s members in between Menomena albums. Now enjoy the music while I weep in the corver due to the fact they haven’t added an Irish date on their current tour.

Ramona Falls – I Say Fever
