Russian Circles might very well be capturing the transmissions of a complex, little known galaxy far away. In crafting snaking, ornate instrumental passages with nary a word to be heard, the group’s material offers the possibility that they have special access to a distant away satellite and are using its transcendental signals to fuel their own imaginations.
Their Stoner Metal-colored Post-Rock is perpetually in flux, with songs constantly evolving in scope and tone. Despite being only a trio, their work frequently sounds like it was created by far more players. With the recent release of the new album Geneva (Suicide Squeeze) behind them, Russian Circles will hit the road with Louisville Hardcore outfits Young Widows and Coliseum to flesh out loftily-titled tracks like “Hexed All” and “When the Mountain Comes to Muhammad."
They play the Mad Hatter with Coliseum and Young Widows. Get show details and Sound Advice here.
