Circle The Fires

For all things Sound And Visual, Alive and Ancient. For People Who Love Music They can Touch and Feel. For music made from the Forest Floors.

'Heavy', the new EP from composer William Ryan Fritch is a bombastic and ever-moving work that draws equally from the forward-thinking arrangements of modern chamber music as it does the snarling, imposing presence of Garage Rock. The whirring barrage of sounds and textures that percolate through it’s six songs are both wildly varying and effortlessly assimilated.

Bass Clarinets and French Horns growl and moan in concert with bursts of analog synths and electric guitars. Thundering primitive rhythms crunch and grind while strings, harps and flutes scurry about in the wake of each percussive stomp and crack. Using only live, acoustic, and un-sequenced instrumentation, Fritch contorts and bastardizes familiar styles and idioms much like electronic musicians do through sampling; by oversimplifying their forms, altering their tone and texture, and tangling them together in irregular and complex ways.

This EP is the most recent installment in Lost Tribe Sound’s ever expanding ‘Leave Me Sessions Subscription Series’; an endeavor that will see 10 albums of Fritch’s music (more than 6 hours of new music) released in a span of less than nine months. In addition to this ambitious spate of records, the long awaited release of his collaborative project with drummer Jon Mueller (Volcano Choir), Death Blues ‘Ensemble’ is slated for release by the label, Rhythmplex on September 23rd, 2014.

‘Heavy’ will be available for purchase as a digital EP August 19th. It will also be included as a bonus download card to those who purchase the Deluxe LP Book of ‘Revisionist’, the epic final installment of William Ryan Fritch’s Subscription Series coming later this Fall.

Do yourself a favor and buy the new album from Erik Skodvin, Flame!  The perfect blend of dark jazzy, middle eastern-tinged americana. A commanding minimal masterpiece of thumping rhythmics, guttural droning woodwinds  and raw dry desert guitars, bordering on some of the most incredible and black heartedly pleasurable music I heard in some time.  Thank you, Mr Skodvin (Deaf Center, Svante Greiner)!

Order the album at ANOST as a limited double vinyl album (with instant download).

It includes the reissue of Flare, Skodvin’s first solo album under his own name along with the new one, Flame.  I have feeling it won’t be available for long in this double vinyl format. Releasing on the always amazing label Sonic Pieces on June 14th.

Studio Items Stolen

Rafael Anton Irisarri's (The Sight Below, Orcas) entire studio and all of their possessions were stolen this morning in a U-Haul truck.  Please help spread the word, maybe they can catch these low forms of life and help the Irisarri’s get back their items.

Dear Listeners,

Our moving truck got stolen around 4:17 am this morning, along with all my studio equipment, backup drives, instruments (even a 900 pound piano!) and all of our lifelong possession. We lost EVERYTHING.
