€22,95
  • Availability:

British fairy musicianThis is a split record that Sam McLoughlin released in July 2023 on the same folklore research label Folklore Tapes in a limited edition of 7 copies.

Contains 13 nostalgic yet new folklore songs using harmonium, nylon guitar, hand percussion, and dictaphone.

Lithographic print jacket with hand-drawn map and DL code included.

Fae Transit is an exploration into the realm of fairy music introduced to us by Sam McLoughlin in his contribution to Folklore Tapes' Swifter than the Moon's Sphere.If Green and Brown was an eyewitness account of a fairy parade, Fae Transit is a complete abduction, a journey through a forest inhabited by spirits and haunted by the living.

The album was written for harmonium, nylon guitar, hand percussion, and dictaphone, with harmonium and fingerpicked guitar constantly exchanging roles as melodic and harmonic instruments.The dialogue created by these instruments has the intensity of chamber music, but the music is simple and simple, singing songs that transcend complexity.

If you have an idea in mind of what fairy sounds are, this is probably not it.Full-throttle harmonic drones, triplet rhythms, and meandering melodies are more McKenna's Machine Elf than Tinkerbell.But calm.An air of nostalgia and melancholy pervades the carnival-like music, which is poignant and at times menacing, but never violent.

And the erratic clicks, pops, and hums of the dictaphone mysteriously frame the pastoral musings of the pipes and strings, seeming to rewind and fast forward time itself.Is it the listener's ears, or is the music searching for itself through the abyss?This is deeply personal music, a unique statement, and unmistakably Sam McLoughlin's work.

Folklore Tapes:

"Fae Transit is an expedition into a realm of faerie music Sam McLoughlin introduced us to in his contribution to Folklore Tapes' Swifter than the Moon's Sphere. If Green and Brown was a sighting of a faerie parade, Fae Transit is a full abduction, a journey through a woodland inhabited by spirits and haunted by the living.

The album is written entirely for harmonium, nylon guitar, hand percussion and dictaphone, with harmonium and finger-plucked guitar continually exchanging roles as melodic and chordal instruments. The interweaving dialogue between these instruments has a chamber-like intensity, though the music flows with simple, rustic tunes singing above any complexity.

If you have ideas in your mind of what faerie sounds like, this probably isn't it. The full-throated harmonium drones, triplet rhythms and meandering melodies are more McKenna's machine elves than Tinker Bell. But it's calm. An air of nostalgia and Melancholy pervades the carnivalesque music, which is wistful, and occasionally menacing, but never violent.

Then there's the anomalous clicks, pops and whirrs of the dictaphone, seemingly rewinding or fast-forwarding time itself, curiously framing the pastoral musings of pipe and string. Is it the listener's ear, or is the music searching for itself from beyond some unfathomable rift ? This is deeply personal music that is at once a unique utterance and, unmistakably, Sam Mcloughlin's work."
