Castles in Spain recently released their 5th CD on the Chameleon Music label in late July.  Entitled Reminiscing Chapter V, the ten track disc was recorded at Radiostar Studios and produced by Sylvia Massy, who has produced such iconic acts as Prince, Tool, System of a Down, Tom Petty, Red Hot Chili Peppers, R.E.M, Johnny Cash, and countless others.  Castles in Spain is fronted by award-winning vocalist, guitarist, multi-instrumentalist, and songwriter, Biachi Notaro, who embodies the swagger of Joan Jett, heartfelt passion of Melissa Etheridge and Johnette Napolitano and melodic songwriting sensibilities of Linda Perry

1340 Magazine states "the music is at once tough, lush and hypnotic, often reminiscent of the epic sounding Jane's Addiction," and The San Francisco Bay Guardian describes Castles in Spain as, "Imagine Jimmy Page and Robert Plant riding through the desert, kicking up dust and camel shit at some Cairo bazaar, where Chrissie Hynde is sitting in with Jane's Addiction, playing Black Sabbath and middle-eastern folk music."
