out of stock

Fans of Bonnie Prince Billy, Smog, Black heart procession & Sufjan stevens who haven't yet crossed paths with Ray Raposa's Castanets could very well start here.

with a nice and unexpected cover of Keith Whitley's song "I'm no stranger to the rain" (a US mainstream Country 80's songwriter who died in sad circumstances in 89 drowned in alcohol problems) on the a side, & a long & rootsy version of 'Meridians' on the b - a classic & magic Castanets song with this typical deep, gloomy, bluesy & ghostly touch. while we have your attention it's worth pointing out that Raposa has just had a killer record come out under the name Raymond Byron & the White Freighter.
