Why: It’s always a good time when Air Circus is playing. If my neighbors weren’t watching me out in the garden, I might bust a move out there. They’ve seen me in my pajamas so there’s nothing left to lose. It could be my own little garden party with Air Circus.
Who: Altostratus, instrumental progressive rock band from the UK.
What: They have a new album, “Complete the Connection.”
Guitarist Alex Hek says, “We spent a large portion of the writing process making sure that the pace of the record as a whole worked from start to finish, and that every song has its own identity. It features our heaviest parts to date, as well as a grander, almost post-rock feel throughout. We paid close attention to what every chord says and how every section feels. Its taken us this long to release as no compromises have been made in regards to composition, and we have spent countless hours discussing very minor details. This has accumulated to create a very nuanced, dynamic – and what we believe to be – epic piece of music.”
What: They have a new single out called “It’s Alright.”
Why: The new single, “It’s Alright”, was inspired by the people in our lives who think they know you but at the same time, they just can’t work you out. They wait until the most creative moments to get in your head and make you second-guess what it is you are doing. Not to mention – they have the worst sense of timing. We all have those people we love or care about in our lives. How can we have it all without sacrificing or hurting others in the process? We figure it out and make it all happen – so, It’s Alright.
