Indefinite Hiatus

I am saddened to say that I will have to put my blog on an indefinite hiatus due to the fact that I currently have more than I can handle on my plate. I want to thank everyone that has ever visited this blog. I hope I have pleasured your eardrums.

You may continue to follow me on Twitter, where I will still post song recommendations and links to any other cool music related news/songs/etc. I will also continue to be a guest-blogger on Pretty Much Amazing! The Music Blog.

Russian Circles - Harper Lewis

I realize instrumental music isn't for everyone. But for those who like it or are open to exploring the genre, the Russian Circles are pretty awesome. I realize there is a lot of vocal-less music in the electronica genre, but these guys are far from that. It would be easy to categorize them as metal, but they have the whole post-rock/experimental thing going as well--so don't write them off so quickly if you can't stand metal. I'm sure you won't get a headache.

Harper Lewis" is from their second LP, Station, which they recorded in Seattle, Washington. Much like the remainder of the seven track album, this song is very layered and alternates from hard-hitting head banging to mellow breakdowns.

Favourite Part: The way the song constantly changes, builds up, breaks down and keeps you interested in what's next.

Originally from Chicago, the Russian Circles are a three piece band who've opened for such bands as Minus the Bear and Tool.
