Circulatory System: Mosaics Within Mosaics
Circulatory System are back with a new double album called "Mosaics within Mosaics". They are led by Will Cullen Hart, visual artist and one of the main songwriters of the psychedelic pop band The Olivia Tremor Control. Coinciding with a tour with old friends Neutral Milk Hotel, including an appearance at Pitchfork Music Festival, the album will be released June 24th, 2014. The album was culled together in the style in which Will has always worked, using recordings from his copious back catalog of home recordings spanning from twelve years ago to now. It was masterfully assembled by Derek Almstead (Faster Circuits) with overdubs by John Fernandes (Dream Boat, Jacob Morris, The New Sound of Numbers, Old Smokey), Heather McIntosh (The Instruments), AJ Griffin (Laminated Cat), Peter Erchick (Pipes You See, Pipes You Don't), and Jeff Mangum & Jeremy Barnes (Neutral Milk Hotel). The lyrics feature Will's unique observations and impressions of life - poetic and meaningful. The music is entrancing, sometimes flowing into long instrumental passages that set a very pleasant atmosphere. Since the mixes originated in Will's bedroom, they all have his signature deep-focus production style. He is very enamored with using the mixes of songs from the day they were recorded instead of trying to capture the same magic when re-recording them. It makes sense because the sound of the recordings have as much impact as the songs themselves in creating an enveloping world of words, melody, and texture. Available on limited edition vinyl (1000 copies), digital, and CD.
