Why You Should Care: After reviving his original breakthrough band, Olivia Tremor Control, Will Cullen Hart shows no signs of slowing down with a new CS double album.
Psychedelic music almost seems weirder in revival bands today than in its birth in the 60’s and a prime example of this is the work of Will Cullen Hart, frontman of both Olivia Tremor Control and Circulatory System. Hart’s music has always skewed more Revolution 9 than Strawberry Fields, but that duality has generally been split between his two aforementioned bands. “If You Think About It Now”, the first track off Circulatory System’s upcoming double album, Mosaics Within Mosaics, blurs the line between those bands.
“If You Think About It Now” begins with a basic drum circle loop for a brief three seconds before switching to distorted drum samples. Hart’s airy voice fades in reciting the title name in a haze until about the two minute mark, where the entire band shifts beats, giving rise to a whole new song from the ashes of the original.
Mosaics Within Mosaics is out on June 24th on Cloud Recordings. They’ll also be stopping by Merriweather Post with Neutral Milk Hotel on July 25th
