Old Chestnut is the stunning new double album from Melbourne/Berlin singer songwriter Ned Collette: Old Chestnut. A truly accomplished work, a gorgeous dark folk opus, fleshed out in lush but precise and sparkling instrumentation thanks to a band of extraordinary collaborators. Featuring regular Wirewalker cohorts Joe Talia (who also co- produced the album with Collette) and Ben Bourke, plus Alexander Garsden, cellist Anthea Caddy, and piano from The Necks’ Chris Abrahams on the album’s monolithic centrepiece, ‘June’.
Old Chestnut’ is an album full of weird and wonderful ideas, the majority of which work very well – but it falls very much into the realms of experimental music and psych folk and, as such, is unlikely to have wide appeal. Presumably Ned Collette knows his audience and this will surely be well received by those who already appreciate his music but its density and persistent slow tempo is unlikely to win many new converts; and that’s a shame because it’s an album that rewards perseverance.
2 x Old Chestnut CDs 13 x Old Chestnut Double LP Feeding Tube Records ed. 4 x NC & Wirewalker '2' LP (2012). If you want to own any of these, better be quick. All other CDs and LPs plentiful except the first two albums and the gatefold Old Chestnut which are all max GAWN.
