Do yourself a huge favor and head over to Circle Takes The Square’s bandcamp to jam what very well may be the album of the year. After seven long years, Decompositions – Vol. 1. Chapter 1. Rites of Initiation is finally here. There was a lot of e-cynicism going around as to whether or not the new CTTS would meet the hype that has been built since the announcement of a new album several years ago.
Last week some of that cynicism was greatly diminished when NPR made the epic “Way of Ever-Branching Paths” available for streaming. Now it seems all that apprehension was truly without merit because Rites of Initiation is an absolute smanger. I mean it’s only been out for thirty minutes and I’m already on my third listen. The EP is fairly short and only seems to serve as a taste of what is to come when CTTS releases their second full length in November on their own Gatepost Recordings label.
