vsp Taps into the ancient eeriness of folk music with Alison's tart vocals and Fairefay's musical settings. Great Acid Folk, Folk Rock, Progressive Folk or whatever you want to classify it as. Fans of Mellow Candle, Pentangle and Steeleye Span will dig it. Favorite track: Come All Ye Malcontents.

about

A collaboration between folk noir London-based group Firefay and Alison with the result taken up by Steven Collins of Stone Tape. Songs about homelessness, depression, the barbarity of bullfighting and running bulls in the streets, the London riots of 2012, the devastation of an air strike in WW11 and more.
