Description

Decimation Blues on CD

The world is loud. The wind blows hard. We need songs for shelter, and Raymond Raposa can build a shelter from almost anything: The sun-bleached bones of a drum track and a couple spare organ chords; a carpet of creeping synth arpeggios, a scaffolding of multi-tracked harmonies, a few scraps of alto sax to prop up the whole structure. Decimation Blues, Raposa's sixth release as Castanets, marks a decade of scavenger architecture. Decimation Blues sees Raposa stepping out in front of the hermetic persona he's crafted over ten years. There have always been shards of pop songs glinting in the dark corners of Castanets records. Here we get whole gleaming edifices. Decimation Blues is the music of a man who's learned to live and build among the wreckage?twelve seemingly offhand, secretly meticulous tracks that we can hunker down in. ?Still always good to be alone in someone else's home,? Raposa sings. He?ll lend US his place, or teach US how to fix up our own. Come in out of the rain, put your shoes by the fire. The walls might shake, the wind might howl, but you?ll be safe here a while.
