I have stacks of stuff to share folks, problem is very little of it is currently ripped. But I do have this - a rather miscellaneous cassette by a combo billing themselves as the Circling Sky. A total cold case, if you will, as no contact or personnel info is provided on the spartan j-card, which offers nothing more than a standard track list. By the looks of things, this may have been devised as an in-house tape for some indie label or A&R company. It does however mention these are "rough mixes," but considering there's nary an iota of evidence to indicate this was ever made available for public consumption, I would suspect these was about as "finished" as these six tracks ever got.
Circling Sky's whatchamacallit brand of quirky guitar pop was heavy on noodly arpeggios and a trifle jammy on occasion. Tight as hell too, and with a bigger recording budget, juicy morsels like "Another Lifeless Day" and "The Dating Game" would have held their own amidst the fringes of the soon-to-be burgeoning alt-rock boom. Not a game changer by any means, but strangely appealing.
