Performer Notes
  • Recording information: Studio Litho, Seattle, WA (12/2007).
  • Post-rock outfit Russian Circles takes minimal swaths of metal riffs, ambient atmospheres, and math rock gestures and fits them all together to make a whole greater than the sum of its parts. STATION, the group's sophomore release, avoids the aggressive thunder of their debut ENTER, opting instead for an artful arrangement of sonic elements in which heavy riffs and chugging percussion are balanced with softer layers of subtle effects. The result is both disorienting and strangely alluring, creating a tension that makes STATION something unique, worthy of repeated listens.
Professional Reviews
Alternative Press (p.133) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n extremely diverse album that tempers headbang-worthy rock riffs with shimmering guitar lines, setting Russian Circles apart from their peers."

Magnet (p.117) - "[F]or STATION, Russian Circles emphasized the solid, flexible drumming of Dave Turncrantz....Without relying on overly complex time signatures or flashy skin-bashing, Turncrantz subtly guides the ship into interesting waters."

Kerrang (Magazine) (p.50) - "Best here...is the shimmering Mogwai-esque 'Verses,' which surges and floats with a warm ethereality that will move even the most hardened of hearts."

Paste (magazine) (p.75) - "STATION is the kind of music Wagner would've composed if he were a metalhead."
