Song of the Week: Russian Circles – Harper Lewis

The song that I have for you this week is from a instrumental rock band from Chicago, called Russian Circles. Despite only being a 3 piece band (guitarist, bassist, and a drummer), they manage to create a dense and layered sound, deftly traversing between light, beautiful passages and punishing heavier movements. While in my earlier years, I often shied away from instrumental music thinking it to be uninteresting, Russian Circles is anything but that.
