17-04-2013 // MixTape: Harvest Star Collective - Harvest Star Vol. 3


Harvest Star Folk Collective is a group of "like minded folk musicians" (their own words) from the south coast of the USA releasing music together. They've recently released their 3rd compilation album called Harvest Star Vol. 3 and it's every note perfection.



The base is Americana/Folk, but the 12 songs are all very different. Best example of the wide range of this compilation is "Dead Horses" vs "Billy Dyer", exciting experimental Tango-esque vs back-to-basics Country Folk (not sure why I use capitals dor music styles, but who cares..). Both equally beautiful, as you can hear for yourself. Justin Cross sounds a LOT like Ray LaMontagne, which can be considered a big compliment from the RLM-fan that I am.


Only familair name is Fire Mountain, who released a great album back in 2011, called Off The Dust. And they do a fine job here, just as the other 11 acts do. This is a great collection of music! I've been able to track down several of the artists already. There's more where this came from and you'll be hearing more soon. I'm already enjoying the result of my investigations.

For now: Great. Fucking. Compilation.
