Formed in 1991, Circle is the most visible 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 psychedlia, and soundtrack-like beauty. Hard, chilly repetition has served as the lone unifying theme throughout 16 years of experiments. Circle's live shows have been internationally praised for their advanced musicianship and eye-popping visuals. Each gig is an exercise in sensory overload that masterfully explores the outer limits of grinding tension and celestial calm.
