Edward Castelow goes Down By The Riverside

Radio13

Edward Castelow is gliding out from behind the Dictaphone Blues moniker to release a tender album of songs under his own name. Written and recorded during 2020, Mirth is a nine-song collection of personal tales and reflections delivered in a rich baritone that is due for release early 2021.
 
Lead single "Down By The Riverside" flows and builds like the Hakatere (the river that severs Tinwald from Ashburton, the small town where Edward grew up), wandering through arresting chronicles and feel changes until it bursts into an escalating coda.

It's what we deep southers might call a "wee beauty".
