Terry De Castro 'A Casa Verde'
Terry de Castro takes a novel approach to her solo debut, one that is especially charming, likable, and well, curious. She's chosen to take a wonderfully unusual course and recorded an album comprised entirely of cover versions, but these are not necessarily well-known songs by famous artists.
Each song is a story unto itself, and all of the songs hang together in a vivid and illuminating way. Nationality comes into play here as well: A Casa Verde is replete with the intrinsically soothing and unmistakably American strains of steel guitar and banjo, among other instruments.
"A low key delight (8/10)" [NME]
"I like de Castro’s voice a lot" [Pennyblack Music]
"A glorious alt-pop gem… this is one of the most intimate and affecting records in years" [Rock 'n' Reel]
"A winningly intriguing collection… in a word: magical" [Rock-A-Rolla]!
