Good Day Noir Family,
welcome to Edgar Allan Poets indie music corner. A space dedicated to the best new artists and bands we find around the web. Today’s featured Artist is Calum MacColl and his album About Time.

About Time is Calum MacColl’s Album

It is evident from the very first notes that we are dealing with an artist with a great compositional experience behind him.

The refinement of the musical arrangements and the solidity of the melodic lines demonstrate highly developed production qualities and artistic taste.

The folk rock proposed by Calum MacColl is very peculiar as it has nuances that reminded me of Pink Floyd and Cat Steven…a weird combination but which, in my opinion, describes the sound universe created by this talented artist.

All the songs on About Time are solid. The album follows a coherent thread… the sweetness and magic of these tracks is undeniable.

The attention to every little detail is obsessive and I advise everyone to listen to the album several times in order to appreciate all its nuances. An album to be enjoyed in small sips like a glass of aged whiskey.

A great find that I recommend to everyone!

Calum says: ‘It’s About Time – both the songs and the fact that I’ve only just got around to making this, my first solo album, at the age of 58. I’ve been writing songs all my life, but they’ve invariably been for other people to sing. It never occurred to me that I could sing them myself.”
