Nice picture! (But where’s the bootleg?) (What do you mean, there’s no bootleg?!?!) (If you see any bootleg, let me know, please…)
There’s also a really nice review from Jillian Pedersen from Spirit 105.9:
I did hear a clip of their live performance. Their harmonies meld together so perfectly in a way only musically talented siblings are able to do. So, if you’re looking for new music with incredible vocals and encouraging words, look no further than Castro.
In which there is backstage (so to speak) stuff from the making of the “Automatic” video, which includes motorcycles (you do remember the “Automatic” video, don’t you?), a tractor, serendipity, and a bonfire (you do remember the “Automatic” video, don’t you?).
Also there is a show. (We do not get to see the show.)
There’s all sorts of info available at the event website; be sure to check out the FAQs. Most important bits? The music is FREE, and open to all. (But the beer part is 21+ and Not Free.) I do like this from their description of Castro:
On Diamond Dreams, they swivel seamlessly between bluesy soul, indie folk, and grandiose pop drama with the poise and effortlessness that only comes with loving each sound too much to abandon it. And while the record may be proudly noncommittal when it comes to genre, there is one mission on which all three siblings agree: making others happy.
“Proudly noncommittal” on genre is just exactly right, isn’t it?
Castrocopia is run entirely by a couple of misfits. Although McLovin, Liz Lemon, and REReader are in the back pocket of the Castros, it should not be inferred that this site is sanctioned by the Castros. Tolerated, yes. Loved, who wouldn't? Our words are our own and we stick by them.
