Circles: Structures

Circles: Structures

Circles were a German band from the ’80s who put out 3 obscure albums which didn’t make much of an impact. This is a collection of unreleased material from the second half of the ’80s. It’s pretty spacey, there aren’t really drums or too much in the way of vocals. Guitar and synth drones, but it’s melodic and feels like the work of a band. “Target” has some chanting in the background, reminiscent of Le Mystère Des Voix Bulgares. “Track II” is a shorter, brighter, guitar piece. “Frog Factory Magic” is a long, minimal piece for organ and some atmospheric guitars. “Digger” is probably the weirdest one, it’s god didgeridoos and free jazz horns and backwards sounds. “Slam” is a long, hypnotic piece with rattling percussion. “Nice Place” is more of a transcendent see-the-light drone. Not quite a lost classic, but it’s still pretty unique.
