X-mas is quickly approaching and in the coming weeks, we will be introducing 3 albums that would look great under the Christmas tree. CD’s filled to the brim with good cheer, a lot of love, and plenty of Christmas feeling. We start off with a true stunner: Hope is The Thing With Feathers by The Castlefest Collective.
Way back in March, when corona started reaping havoc, not only on people’s health but also on the whole music industry, a group of artists from our pagan/fantasy folk scene came together to share tips and idea’s to deal with the new situation. It started out rather practical, but artists wouldn’t be artists if music didn’t pop-up its head sooner or later. And sure enough it did. Guitar riffs became musical ideas, pieces of text became lyrics, and soon enough the first song was born called Hope Is The Thing With Feathers. But it didn’t stop there. Eight songs were born like that in the end, and they all found their way on a lovely album. Just as the single it is called Hope Is The Thing With Feathers and the group named themselves The Castlefest Collective.
I’ve been listening to this album for about 2 weeks now, and it really grew on me. Hopefully, the album WILL find its way to your Christmas tree and it will captivate you as much as it did me. For more info, just click.
