Song of the Day - August 2, 2006

Nick Castro has formed a new band called The Young Elders, which includes a multitude of musicians including the beautiful vocals of Wendy Watson, members of Current 93, Cul de Sac, In Gowan Ring, and a few others. Nick has a habit of attracting great talent. In the past, he has worked with Josephine Foster and members of Esper. The instrumentation on Come Into Our House ranges from oud, harmonium, cello, trombone, and tabla. As a result, there are definite world influences to this freak-folk album. My favorite track is a cover of "One I Love" which features the singing talents of Wendy Watson accompanied by the rest of the band with luscious vocal harmonies in the spirit of Crosby, Stills, and Nash. I have been playing it over and over. Click here to listen.
