    Want to take a dip into the more experimental end of the indie pool? Well hold your nose and drown inside the depths of acoustic guitar sounds, larger-than-life amplified effects, and bluesy vocals that San Diego's Castanets plans to offer up on their upcoming album. Titled Texas Rose, The Thaw and The Beasts, the record will be a must have when the iridescent days of summer start to give way to Fall.

    The Castanets have certainly come a long way since the release of their debut album, The Cathedral, five years ago...though we're wondering if this might finally be main man, Raymond Raposa's masterpiece. Texas Rose covers a variety of diverse genres, including country, pop and folk music, blending all into a dark, mysterious album that shows just the right dab of light with upbeat tempos.

    Asthmatic Kitty is set to release the album on September 22nd 2009. In support of this next installment, the Castanets are kicking off their summer tour throughout the United States, beginning June 30th in New York. - Lonnie Nemiroff
