It takes a modicum of gall in a post-Sunny Day Real Estate world to name a song “In Circles,” but here is Woodsman with just such an MP3 and gall in tow. The two-drummer/two-guitarist attack set forth by the Denver outfit on “In Circles” casts a relaxed motorik beat under thick plumes of bong smoke and criss-crossing melodic noodles. It’s Can on a vision quest, for an unsunny day full of trees and shadows when the psychedelics kicked in. “In Circles” comes from the Mystic Places EP, Woodsman’s fifth release, following last year’s Mystery Tape and this year’s Rare Forms.
