The signs aren't good on opener 'Summer (for PLC)' which drifts along with the word 'summer' in every line which grates on these ears, as does Castle's voice on 'Neverride' which just a little too Newsom for me but things really come together on 'Powers' which is a gorgeous slice of atmospheric Mazzy Star like hazy brilliance fed through the kind of eerie late night vibe Catpower explored so brilliantly on the 'MoonPix' album. Slightly reverbed guitar, echoey drum thumps and a gorgeous almost indecently evocative vocal. Elsewhere a weird vocal quiver and steel guitar come into play on 'Way of the Crow' but Castle is at her best playing it simple on 'You don't have to be' which is kind of a bit like Gillian Welch stripped of...well, everything. Its a mixed bag of an album, some of it stuns whilst other tracks drift by inconsequentially but Castle, who has sung with Fucked Up amongst others has a certain something that is worth persevering with.
