Album Notes
"A cage match between Pharaoh Sanders and Hank Williams."
-Philadelphia City Paper

“Circles has born into this world yet another paradoxical archetype of Philadelphia rock music: a band playing riffed-out bar rock for kids that listen to Ornette Coleman.” -artnoise

“Circles have managed to create something … that so many have tried to create and so few have actually managed.” –

“…an extremely intriguing sound, offering the possibility of a new branch from the long and winding body of country and folk music, one that incorporates new sounds and textures from genres far removed from the country idiom.” – one true dead angel

“If you look up alternative in the dictionary there should be a picture of these guys.” –

Circles is a Philadelphia band that plays music influenced by Hank Williams, Albert Ayler, roots, percussion, and the pentatonic scale. The band’s current membership includes guitarist/vocalist Nick Millevoi (Altamira, Chakra Khan/Air Pirates, George Korein), pianist Pete Curry, and drummers Robert Ludington (Hulk Smash, Sentinel) and Julius Masri (Chakra Khan/Air Pirates, former-Golden Ball, Kuru Kuru Pa). They are often supplemented by trombonist Dan Blacksberg (Joe Morris Ensemble, Warriors of the Wonderful Sound, Sonic Liberation Front). The music of Circles can be/has been heard on WPRB, WKDU, and Jon Solomon’s Local Support podcast. Circles plays around Philadelphia and has toured the Northeast and Midwest, along the way, the band has shared bills with many great bands, including Dirty Projectors, O’Death, Dan Friel (Parts & Labor), and the Notekillers. The band’s first album, When the Big River Floods has been re-released by Summersteps Records after selling out its original pressing on Well Below Records. In the spring of 2008, Wooden Man records released Weighs A Ton, available here.

Here's what Wooden Man Records says about our album:
Circles's first release on WM is a full-length montage. This sounds like a travelogue written by someone with multiple degrees in the humanities. The poppy parts hook you and the jazzy parts wow you and the country 7 chords make you feel like you're eating mashed potatoes. Recommended for fans of good stuff.
