I know this came out last year, but I've only just discovered it: Up In Flames by Manitoba. It's amazing!

I saw them live last night and it occurred to me they sounded a little (just a little) like Circulatory System, with the twin drumkits and swirling psychedelic sound.

I recommend the album to anyone - very, very lovely.

Er, whatever. I did say 'just a little' - I reckon there's a certain similarity, albeit not a striking one. Perhaps it's just that the production is almost as lush as Will's stuff.

Manitoba is good stuff, but maybe not that similar to CS.

I really think that Minus Story sound quite a bit like Circulary System, I really think that they are worth checking out if you haven't already done so! Their album The Captain Is Dead, Let the Drum Corpse Dance has gotten good reviews from both Pitchfork and Tinymixtapes. And now I sounded a bit like a commercial, which wasn't my plan :)
