Destroyer with Jennifer Castle

Kaputt by Malaparte, which Bejar has never read… Kara Walker, specifically the lyrics she contributed to the song “Suicide Demo for Kara Walker”… Chinatown, the neighborhood bordering on Bejar’s… Baby blue eyes… 80s Miles Davis… 90s Gil Evans… Last Tango in Paris… Nic Bragg, who played lead guitar on every song, again… Fretless bass… The hopelessness of the future of music… The pointlessness of writing songs for today… V-Drums… The superiority of poetry and plays… And what’s to become of film?… The Cocaine Addict… American Communism… Downtown, the neighborhood bordering on Bejar’s… The LinnDrum… Avalon and, more specifically, Boys and Girls… The devastated mind of JC/DC, who recorded, produced and mixed this record from fall of 2008 to spring of 2010… The back-up vocals of certain Roy Ayers and Long John Baldry tours… Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence…

These are some of the themes alluded to or avoided in the album Kaputt…

Pleased to announce “Pink City” the new LP by Jennifer Castle. Recorded throughout 2013 with longtime producing partners Jeff McMurrich and David Clarke,  Castle spent the previous year touring North America behind her 2012 LP Castlemusic (including shows with Cass McCombs and Lower Dens). She entered the studio with a batch of material; not quite knowing what direction the songs would take. The results are a stirringly beautiful record every bit a step forward from its predecessor. The barer arrangements – oftentimes just piano, guitar and voice – highlighting just how good of a songwriter Castle is. There is some additional accompaniment: Owen Pallet provides string arrangements on a few tracks, the upbeat “Sparta” features a country-funk rhythm section while folk-singer Kath Bloom contributes wistful harmonica on the pining “Down River.”
