Castanets: Texas Rose, The Thaw & The Beasts


Castanets is set to release Texas Rose, The Thaw & The Beasts on Asthmatic Kitty September 22nd.  Ray Raposa has consistently put out great records that would defy any description or tag that I could attempt to place upon them.  However, there is something to be said about a rich textural backdrop that allows the song-written core of an album to blossom. A sonic environment, be it sparse or dense, wherein a song reveals itself in its fullest glory.

You can catch Castanets on tour this summer. Dates and download after the jump…
