    The Bardo Story sounds like a collection of rediscovered ’60s and ’70s gems uploaded to YouTube.

    The Bardo Story can tread toward the familiar, especially on the Sacred Bones psych of Salvia Plath. But, even in those moments it’s clear that Collins’ ever-developing songwriting voice is moving toward something even more noteworthy.

    There may be a bunch of bands traveling the same psychedelic back roads as Salvia Plath, but Collins and company ride with style.

    The great leaps it takes sometimes feel less like an aesthetic choice and more like the work of someone figuring out where they want to go. It's a cut above most public attempts to undertake such a journey, if indeed that's what Collins is doing.

    The Bardo Story is an appealing shot of homespun psychedelia.
