FLYING CIRCLES: Of Loving Grace: CS

Flying Circles makes meandering, mid-tempo soft rock, a genre I mention mostly because the first band this cassette made me think of was Fleetwood Mac. The vocals are richer and more contemporary than Stevie’s, of course, but there’s a similar meditative darkness that pervades these pretty songs, which are guitar-driven but also feature pianos and theremins and choral backup vocals. They sound like a plugged-in Alela Diane with guitar solos and moody basslines. It’s frankly an impeccable cassette. –Lyle (Antiquated Future, antiquatedfuture.com)
