let’s backtrack to 2004, as im flying on a plane to austin, tx and sailing thru white cotton clouds slipping into twenty different shades of blue. the faint sounds of an acoustic guitar hauntingly echoes CASTANETS’ first story-like album as i fall asleep inside my own private heaven.

“…recorded mostly in a secluded cabin in the northern california woodlands, *CATHEDRAL* illuminates the dark architecture where faith and doubt clash in an often-ambiguous search for the divine.”
warm summer nights and the calmness of this album makes me want to dream in a dark candlelight room with absolutely no distractions. no talking, no touching. maybe just some whispering, silent raindrops and the soft turn of cool air coming from the fan.
lay me down with yr gentle hand
..i had a dream so black that i could not tell..
honey, i had a dream so dark that i could not tell
but i know thats just as well.

songs: no light to be found, you are the blood, 3days/4nights

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
