Mosaics Within Mosaics

For two decades, W. Cullen Hart of Athens, Georgia, has been one of indie rock’s great psychedelic visionaries – recording two cult-classic LPs with the Olivia Tremor Control in the Nineties, then plunging even deeper into the dream with this band starting in 2001. Circulatory System’s third proper album, their best since their debut, is a leisurely suite where kaleidoscopically sweet vocal melodies and folky instrumentation drift in and out of focus, occasionally resolving into songs that you’ll swear you’ve been humming for years (“Do You Know What’s Real?” “Elastic Empire Coronation”). At its best, Mosaics has all the magic of a bedroom-studio Smile.
