InCircles - Indie Rock from the USA

InCircles

Taking influences from the faster edges of rock and roll along with some more calming blues InCircles introduce an invigorating sound to the room. Using lead guitar as a rhythm section for sections of the tracks the trio is able to give the music considerable depth, whilst maintaining an up-tempo forward trajectory which is driven by an urgent and busy percussion whilst bass lays out the framework for the compositions. A vocal rides like a plough through the tracks turning up the stones and churning the sounds which gives InCircles the roughed edges that to me brings the music to life.

When they slow the whole thing down, they are able to carry it off with confidence, but it is when they keep the sounds teetering on the brink that they are strongest as they let the music cascade off the walls.

Having been round for a few years now the the trio developed a confidence in each other that lets them easily switch between phrases mid bar without missing a beat and I hope InCircles are able to continue with their untrammelled musical output.

Vegas With Randolph – Rings Around The Sun – LP Review

Vegas With Randolph have just released their fourteen track LP – Rings Around the Sun.

Vegas With Randolph - LP review - Rings Around The Sun

Vegas With Randolph – cover of Rings Around The Sun

Opening with You Set The World On Fire which at just under four minutes lets the listener settle into Rings Around The Sun with sounds that contain the familiar, yet demonstrates the evolution of the band over the years as the lyrics take us through some of the significant scientific, astrological  and other figures in history.

Salt Water Taffy takes the sounds to a more centrist garage rock tilt with a space-rock undercurrent. I particularly enjoy this track, which was featured just a few days ago.

Cool Things shakes the release in to full flow with a track that picks up the pace with a summery rock feel to it.


Next up is Nikki’s Plan takes the story of life goal and delivers a more thought provoking lyrical concept yet keeps it in tune with the up-beat and effervescent nature of the story so far. It isn’t easy to maintain the journey that is Vegas With Randolph as within four songs we have had four distinctive styles, yet this is the essential core of who they are and why it is always a pleasure to review their material as although they maintain that creative streak and continually wrong-foot the listener, there is at the heart of it the unmistakeable sound of the band that keeps it all coherent.

Almost to prove the point – Broadway – a blues rock number lasts for all of 40 seconds of pithy commentary.

Empathia is classic rock and roll and a fine addition to the release.

Everybody Wants An Atomb Bomb is somewhat jingoistically anthemic and not for me.

Julianne which opens up the second half of Rings Around The Sun more than makes up for it as the melodic guitars sail across the room astride a soul searching vocal.

Snow Day has a delightful almost symphonic introduction before hurtling back to the core sounds of the band.

Late June is my pick of the release as it shows the band in full flow and showcases their talent.

Open Roads is an acoustic led piece and the construction of the song demonstrates Vegas With Randolph have a full handle on making the most out of compositions.

My Lost Colony finds the band once again in a more reflective mood as the deeper notes are given space to set the mood.

The penultimate and title track runs at over five minutes and is the longest piece on the album and the listeners find themselves in another completely different mood setting.

Closing out the LP is Drops of Gold and Vegas With Randolph complete a delightful journey around the Rings Around The Sun with a flourish.

An appropriately named LP given the vast distances musically that the audience is taken, which the band carries off with style.  As with previous releases by the band there are various bonus tracks depending on the format you get hold of the LP so I won’t cover these in the review.
