If it’s not already, tomorrow you will be able to find Castanets’ remarkable In The Vines on the shelves of your neighborhood independent record store. You can, of course, also order it here for just $10 (+SH) and we’ll rush it out to you.
In the meantime, you can still listen to the album. Music blog Paper Thin Walls sat down with Ray Raposa, frontman for the band, and Rafter, the record’s producer. Not only is the website streaming the entire album, but Ray and Rafter also provide a song-by-song commentary for what Paper Thin Walls calls a Listening Party. Party indeed. Hearing Ray talk about his own music is a rare treat. Listen and read here.
