Product Details


We're super pumped to join up with countless other awesome bands and labels to celebrate independent record stores worldwide, and we've added a ton of sweet features to this limited first pressing of Castor, The Twin to prove it. We made up a total of 1,000 hand-numbered white vinyl pieces for this initial run, and included a very special sheet music insert to standout track "The Beekeeper," transcribed for piano and vocal arrangement.

Castor, The Twin is an 11-song project that was recorded entirely with live players for a somber, elegant, and organic effect. Ten of the songs have been previously released on other Doomtree projects; the eleventh is the chilling and beautiful advance single from Dessa's next full-length, Parts Of Speech. On Castor, The Twin, original Doomtree production from Paper Tiger, Lazerbeak, Marshall Larada, and Cecil Otter is reinterpreted on vibraphone, grand piano, viola, mandolin, stand-up bass, and timpani. The album was conceived during Dessa's Into The Spin Tour-the first tour she'd done with her live trio (Sean McPherson, Dustin Kiel, and Joey Van Phillips). Audiences responded so well to their inventive re-arrangements, and the nuance of their performances, that the new treatments seemed to warrant capturing.

Comment: I've really liked this album since it originally came out on CD. The live arrangements really give new life to the songs. My favorites would be Mineshaft, Dixon's Girl, Palace, and Beekeeper. Great record as usual.

Comment: Dessa at her best! This is the place to start if you're planning to check out her music. Taking cuts from her "False Hopes" EP and "Badly Broken Code" LP and recording them with the live, jazzier arrangements. Dessa's lyrics are deep & thought provoking. Her voice is angelic when she sings and stinging when she MCs. Excellent album!
