From Toronto, Jennifer Castle writes folk songs about friendship, love and heartbreak. Pink City is a stirringly beautiful album every bit a step forward from 2011’s Castle music. It's barer arrangements often just piano, guitar and voice with string arrangements from Owen Pallet - highlight just how good of a songwriter Castle is. Her singing has an intuitive style, not always following the expected melody, but soaring along on it's own current. Greil Marcus wrote in the Believer that Castle reaches a pitch of mystical transport so gorgeously ethereal she seems to drift off into lands that don't appear on any map.
