Album Review

Drever, McCusker and Woomble – Silver And Gold

If ever someone needs a reminder about the richness and variety of Scottish music, then they need only to forage through the past works of Kris Drever, Roddy Woomble (Idlewild), John McCusker. The latter artist’s classical slant helps to create subtlety and a searching mood. Enabling the tender, soul-searching vocals to eek out hearty feeling, as a winding introduction to this quaint, new collaboration unfurls.

This trio seem to have compactness, but still give the hint that can expand and throw in a few surprises when debut album ‘Before The Ruin’, hits the public domain this September. This may not be cutting edge, but they certainly come across as genuine and sincere.
