Truth be told, when the latest album from Circles Around the Sun showed up in my inbox a few weeks ago, I was psyched to check it out. Circles or CATS is undoubtedly one of my favorite acts going right now. They are a four piece instrumental jam band. On the surface, knowing that Neal Casal, Adam MacDougall, Dan Horne and Mark Levy are the players in the band, you are likely to think this is some hippie outfit performing jams straight out of a Dead show. Truth is, while those sorts of sonic landscapes are very much part of their sound, this record, Let it Wander is filled with all kinds of jams from all sorts of different genres. We recently sat down with Adam MacDougall the keyboard player in the group, who also performs with Neal Casal in Chris Robinson’s Brotherhood to talk about Let it Wander, and making a go of CATS. For tour dates and to get Let it Wander, you’ll want to check out their website at circlesaroundthesun.com. You may also be intrigued to check out our youtube channel at youtube.com/thesoundpodcast for a special TSP CATS live performance playlist that we’ve assembled.
