artist: Circuit des Yeux
title: CDY3
format: 10" vinyl record - black
released: 01/04/13

The cryptic vision of Circuit des Yeux becomes ever more formed with this minialbum. Whereas the oft solo Chicago-based Haley Fohr is backed with a tourlearned combo to push these three songs into maximal view then, off into obliteration. Yet, the focus remains Fohr’s haunted, mournful melodies, where the edges of her voice twist toward inner conflict and white light aggression, and intricate feedback architecture of her guitar playing.

In this near anthem rock mode the songs become a liberation from the cacophonous orchestrations fashioned throughout Symphone and Sirenum and the isolation of last year’s Portrait -- all full-lengths on the De Stijl label. The retelling of “I’m On Fire” and the new "Lithonia" are classic structures filtered through Fohr's Romantic spirit and an emotional weight not far from Catherine Ribeiro or Peter Jefferies. The B-side “Helen, You Bitch” is a smudged, concrète-purposed solo that builds with drums and more guitar until the end.

Recorded at the all analogue Magnetic South in Bloomington, Indiana, this 300 edition 10-inch is the studio’s first widespread release on its in-house label after previous titles from Apache Dropout, Learner Dancer and Tammar.

10" record housed inside of black and white cardstock foldover sleeve with b/w insert.
