Los Angeles-based instrumental supergroup
In 2015 Justin Kreutzmann, son of Grateful Dead drummer Bill, invited the late guitarist Neal Casal to compose the intermission music for the Dead’s Fare Thee Well concerts, a victory lap celebrating their final shows. Neal assembled the guys, recorded five hours of jams, and was surprised to find an eager audience and label support from Rhino Records. And Circles Around the Sun was born.
The group’s latest self-titled, third full-length studio album marks a stylistic shift from the psych-jazz odyssey of their previous albums. 2020’s Circles Around the Sun is an evolution that sees the band embracing a sleeker, shinier, even dancier version of themselves— a cosmic disco of the body and the soul, still anchored in the groove, but ascending to the stars.
