Hardly Art – har033

750 on white vinyl

Circle Pit is, and began as, the project of Angela Bermuda and Jack Mannix, though their live show is comprised of a six-person troupe. They have stepped away from the tough grit of their debut to craft the two songs for this 7″ release, which delve deep into a strung-out rabbit hole of lush, droning vocals and guitar layers, stretched out and slow-burning; the melodic equivalent of stabbing your heart with a dull ice pick. Circle Pit are impossible to get ahold of.

“There's no rock n' roll bands that are any good, except for us.” –Circle Pit

Bio:

Two strangers meet in the gutter one rainy evening. The streets of Brussels – no place to raise a family – are nonetheless drenched with the creative energy that birthed Benito Band.

From their humble beginnings as a raucous party band, fitting equally into either a backpack or hatchback, Benito Band, with simple music and dense lyricism, have shaken asses and taken minds across Europe, playing over 150 packed and sweaty shows since mid-2008 in Belgium, France, Spain, Italy, Germany and the UK, as well as in their native Canada.

Founding members Scott Hamilton (Keys, Vox) and Dexter Davies (Drums, Vox) were joined in 2010 by Icelandic multi-instrumentalist and all around bag of tricks, Knut Greenfjord (La Fanfare du Belgistan), adding a new level of saxophone-tuba-harmonica-Theremin madness to the already difficult-to-describe blend of Lumberjack Ska, Carnival Blues and Power Folk Vintage which is ascribed to the group. The music is at all times fresh and feel-good; exhilarating and poignant; dense and inspired.

Influenced by, though barely referencing, contemporary party bands such as Man Man, the Slackers and progressive video game music acts, Benito Band are like Bob Dylan and the Band in a jam session with the Skatalites after a night heavy with Hawaiian girls, old Canned Heat records and too many fugues. Though other excited comparisons could be made, the reality is that the group is none of these predecessors but a fresh breath of crisp northern air blowing through smoky, overcrowded clubs and raising the voices and spirits of a jaded generation of concertgoers who scream for more and more and more.

Through their self-produced, cave recordings on the now nearly vanished ‘Two Man Gentleman Band Mini-LP’ (2008), to their first full-length, independent release ‘Sarsaparilla Jacuzzi’ (2009), to the recently completed demo: ‘Caterpillar Pantomime’ (2010), Benito Band forges forth into the musical unknown, packing only a toothbrush and a bottle of forgotten tomorrows.
