The Independent Culture

The sixth album by these Kentucky alt-country types sees them risk destroying forever the aura of existential gravitas they've accrued with the previous five.

The wheeling arpeggios and chiming harmonies with which Jim James and co fill Circuital act merely as a backdrop for some of the poorest lyrics ever: try "The day is coming, the day is near, the day is coming, you know what I mean". More stuff to block out the silent moments of your life, and nothing else.
