Several months ago I highlighted Castanets debut, Cathedral — high praise abound, and still a favorite night-time listen. Dig how Ashmatic Kitty describes their new album: “With First Light’s Freeze, Castanets return with a dark mutant-country sound infused with strands of free-jazz, new wave and a late-seventies Nashville big-radio strut hijacked by post-punk unravelers. The result is a beautiful mix of somber reflection, destination-unknown travelogue, and subversive anti-war boogie. Castanets’ unrelenting creative pioneering delightfully befuddles, as they simultaneously flirt and dismantle “New Americana” venture capitalism.”
