CIRCA VITAE ep
Today I went to the Jamendo blog where they have posted some excellent playlists. On playlist #3 I struck gold (also check out the hip-hop in playlist #4). Circa Vitae is a band that's hard to categorize. They possess an experimental Radiohead sound, and seem to mix that with a college rock vibe. Circa Vitae released their CIRCA VITAE ep in December, and I recommend you download a copy. My favorite track on the album is "Pterodactyl", I also like "Tower." Male vocalist Britt and female vocalist Anna have a beautiful, contrasting sound over powerfull lyrics. The EP also sports transition tracks that mix a noise/classical sound. This EP is likely unlike anything you have ever heard, and a worthy add to any collection.
