Further Information

A sublime meditation on mortality and memory, ghosts and grief, Angels of Death ca sts a series of spells against forgetting and finality, in the form of mystic - minimalist country - soul torch songs about writing, time travel, and spectral visitations. Castle wrote and recorded this breathtaking follow - up to the acclaimed Pink City (2014) in a 19th century church near the shores of Lake Erie, where her family also lived and experienced a constellation of losses that inhabit these bruised musings. The title track finds Castle wrestling, like Jacob, with the radiant angels of death “hanging i n the room,” while she attempts to navigate, or write, her way through the “loopholes and catacombs of time” — the line is borrowed, with permission, from fellow Canadian poet Al Purdy — like Ariadne in the labyrinth, with her spool of silver thread.
