Circles

Overview

08/07/2012

We don’t know what compelled Stephen Weibelt and Chris Johnson to build a makeshift studio in a makeshift shed in Leeds, Alabama – a state, as it were, that bills itself as the Heart of Dixie – and make music. But they did. As Colossal Gospel, the duo quietly and nearly anonymously recorded the songs that would become “Circles,” their debut LP. If psych-folk is LSD around a bonfire, “Circles” is a low dose of mushrooms on the front porch; a folkloric nu-gospel trip that pulses with the humid breath of a trueborn southern narrative.
