Artist Details: Circle

Formed in 1991, Circle is the most visible and prolific name in the Finnish avant-rock underground. Having survived innumerable lineup changes, the band and its founder, bassist/vocalist/guitarist Jussi Lehtisalo, have constantly reinvented themselves, weaving hypnotic mantras out of exacting Krautrock beats, heavy riffs, arty noise, dark psychedelia, and soundtrack-like beauty. Hard, chilly repetition has served as the lone unifying theme throughout 15 years of experiments.

The group has shared European and American stages with the likes of Acid Mothers Temple, Sunn O))), Merzbow, Jim O’Rourke, Faust, and Trad Gras och Stenar. Each gig is an exercise in sensory overload that masterfully explores the outer limits of grinding tension and celestial calm. – Jordan N. Mamone
