You may not have heard of Canadian singer-songwriter Jennifer Castle, who has a new album, Castlemusic, out on Flemish Eye Records in Canada and re-released by our own No Quarter, as well as two other titles out under the band name “Castlemusic”. But even if you haven’t heard of her, chances are, if you’re a fan of Canadian indie music, you’ve heard her. That is because Castle has collaborated with several high profile Canadian bands and artists, including Fucked Up, Constantines, and Doug Paisley. On her own, Castle writes intricate, compelling songs, with a lovely voice that easily stands on its own. This show at Union Pool, opening for Family Band, gave Castle a chance to perform some of her new material solo, and she made the most of it. Several of the Castlemusic songs, like “Powers” were standouts, along with a few that were (I think) new.

I recorded this set in the same manner as the Family Band recording, with Schoeps MK41 microphones and a soundboard feed.  This recording, which consists of only vocals and guitar, therefore favors the board feed, and the sound is excellent, although there are a couple instances of the vocal mic overpeaking during the first song. Enjoy!

Please correct any errors in the setlist if you know them.

    Uhh, I think that’s a different Jennifer Castle who wrote the young adult fiction book…

    Thanks for taping the set, though!

    Great set! Just one correction: I think Track 3 is actually called Sailing Away (from Pink City). Cheers!
