MP3 At 3PM: Raymond Byron & The White Freighter

As where the Castanets bring ambient entrenched, murky Americana, Ray Raposa’s new side project, Raymond Byron & The White Freighter, clean up that muddled sound for straight-to-point American blues rock. “Allegience,” off Little Death Shaker (out September 4 via Asthmatic Kitty), is good old easy rocker, the kind that plays at bars that marked only by the Pabst Blue Ribbon sign hanging out front.
