City of Refuge
2008 release of City of Refuge by the Castanets. An uneasy, asymmetric weave of sung songs, chants, electronic noise solos, and spaghetti western guitar interludes. "City of Refuge" suggests a film soundtrack; a narrative propelled by yearning, passion, dislocation, ambiguity, regret, redemption, cryptic symbolism, and other art film obligatory. This is not just music but emotional catharsis. Guest appearances by Jana Hunter, Sufjan Stevens, Dawn Smithson (Jessamine, Sunn O))))), Scot Tuma (Souled American, Boxhead Ensemble), and co-producer Ero Gray. 15 tracks.
