Russian Circles, a trio from Chicago (guitar, bass n' drums) with no vocals, rocks me ear goggles.
Other American instrumental rockers that have caught my ear;
If These Trees Could Talk from Akron, Ohio,
Caspian from Beverly, Mass.
and again from Chicago,
Might hav'ta break out some good ol' Kentucky Bourbon n' revisit Louisville's
Some beautiful, somber story telling through whispers n' screams...
Thanks, Joe Dean ('back in '91 when we started jammin' again?)
Wit' not a speck of cereal.
