Raymond Byron and the White Freighter

Little Death Shaker

Asthmatic Kitty Records


Released: 3rd Sep 2012


lp + download

Released: 3rd Sep 2012


the new band from ray raposa of castanets is evocative of late nights & dusty parking lots, long drives & boozy hookups, featuring phosphorescents Matthew Houck.

the Castanets trademark - a wide lens look at deconstructed Americana - remains, but Raposa’s new stuff is getting closer & closer to pure roadhouse blues, This is the most lyric-heavy Raposa’s been and also the most playful & humorous, he's back from the battleground with stories to tell. from alt-country soul stirring reminiscent of phosphorescent, folk-country ballads with magical lyrical twists to eerie fragmentary blues & out & out dylanesque rockers. fantastic!
