Cikular provides some folktronica for this late summer’s afternoon.
Cirkular is Jacob Bogh who did Eleanor Dubby from five years ago. That married The Beatles to strings and dubstep. Girl has a little of that dubstep in the beats. But the mood is much more woozy and slow. The surrounding sounds of off-kilter guitars and strings owe more to the folktronica approaches of Rounds era Four Tet than anything else. The combination is gently beguiling.
Blurb: Cirkular: Girl – including remixes from Rumpistol, Strung Fellows, Discoshaman and Oedeland. Will be released on digital and vinyl August 2016. Until then, enjoy the original here or download at: pattern-abuse.bandcamp.com/album/girl
