Eleven exclusive tracks from the Drift family and friends.

After a year of doing their very best to release albums and bands, Drift decided to put out an entire roster based album, highlighting the collaborative talents of a cohesive group of musicians. Bands morph and re-group across it's eleven tracks, taking in tape music, folk, twee, bedroom, electronica and as close to durge as a 'folk label compilation' has ever managed.

Some artists followed with full albums, some remain undiscovered treasures, the Drift label though did certainly meet new friends.

The Drift Collective is well named - a significant rump of artists distributed across its 11 tracks reappearing elsewhere in supporting roles, lending proceedings a communal, campfire air. Gently eccentric - Mojo

as gorgeous as it is quirky - Observer Music Monthly

fantastic - Time Out

Down at the roots of British folk, strange things continue to stir. 'Shine your shiny car lights on me, boy!' - Smart - The Observer

There's little background information on the sleeve so the music is rightly allowed to stand on it's own merits. I want to hear more from these people - Rock 'N' Reel

Drift Records have assembled a strong roster that manages to embrace the past while retaining an ironic distance, forging new paths out of the acoustic tradition - Is this Music?
