Collector – Pumpkin & Bear

$25.00

CD Review by Graham Blackley

On this fifteen-track album, Collector display their prowess as skilled purveyors of traditional folk music, who are capable of harnessing the melodic power of a wide variety of instruments including fiddle, bouzouki, tenor guitar, Appalachian dulcimer and concertina.

The rollicking and lively opening track “The Great Northern Line” would be the ideal accompaniment to a foaming pint of something dark, malty and mysterious at the Port Fairy Folk Festival.

On this foot-tapping gem the band strike the ideal balance between skilled execution and a down-to-earth vibe while ensuring that the end result is fresh, vibrant and alive.

Another highlight is the powerful “My Son Ted” which features a driving rhythm, impressive lead vocals and the deft and mellifluous interplay between the lead and backing singers.

This song dips its toe into goth-folk territory and proves to be a mesmerising treat.

While relishing such sonic delights, I recommend you peruse the CD booklet which contains lyrics, photos and interesting background information.
