Album Review: Jeff Collins – Make No Waves

Jeff Collins

Make No Waves
Forward March Records


There’s a lot to contemplate on Jeff Collins’ newest album, Make No Waves, a haunting collection of psychedelic folk. Lush soundscapes with diverse instrumentation and Collins’ halting, husky vocals make for tracks that are sometimes reminiscent of Tom Waits, sometimes Bob Dylan’s later work. Collins gets psychedelic on the instrumental “Veterescent” which features interlaced guitar parts, overlapping reverb and tremolo. “Edo” stands out as a gentler take on Collins’ brand of thinking man’s folk. Collins gives the music space with brushes on snare and udu, with cool semi-orchestral flavours coming together in an endearingly lilting and quirky tune.
