The masterminds behind Tony Castles did not always seen eye to eye, but Paul Sicilian and Willie Miesmer put those differences to bed on the Sharon Stone EP. The Brooklyn dream rockers kick off the EP with “Through The Water”, which moves at the same speed one might tred water in the Gowanus, but supplement the murky waters with Lucky Charms milk.
Across the EP Tony Castles are flexing chops. “One Tone Man” is bountiful in afro-bop, while “Heart In The Pipes” is like feel-good Fleetwood fed through synthesizers. “Korea” whimpers into a motorik that leads to pop rocks explosions courtesy of drummer Gabriel Wurzel, who parted with the band after recording the EP. And if you're still looking for a song to soundtrack your undecided days in an election year, simply look to “Senators” and strike up a dialogue about Elephants eating Donkeys being totally messed up.
The Sharon Stone EP is available at Tony Castle's Bandcamp (name a price) on October 23.
