Will wonders never cease?  Nine Circles is back with another edition of our Album of the Month series, and this month we’re close to full capacity as most of the team jumped on to extol the many, many virtues of UK hardcore band Ithaca and their whopper of a debut album The Language of Injury.   Continue reading

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 70 (03.09.2019)

Greetings once more, fellow travelers on the journey of life.  Too much?  Maybe.  I’m just glad it’s the weekend again.  Or it could be that I’m just hungry.  It’s lunch time when I’m writing this, and I’m lusting after some chinese food (I’m eating food from home though, and my wallet better thank me for this one).  Either way, it’s time to get this party started, and there’s no better way than our weekly playlist.  We’ve got lots of good tunes coming this time, and there’s a little something for every taste in there.  I personally included the CHVRCHES song I’ve been jamming on all week, because sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the bleak and the heavy, and CHVRCHES whip ass anyway.  I’ll catch you all next week.  Back to dreaming about chow mein…

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 67 (02.16.2019)

Welcome to the glorious end of another week.  This is especially nice for me, as I’m staring a nice three-day weekend in the face at the moment, which is gonna give me plenty of time to catch up on all the new releases I’ve been slacking on getting to (I did check out the Coltsblood and Un split today and boy howdy was that some good doom).  You can catch me holed up in my bed with my tablet and Spotify for 72 uninterrupted hours as the greater Los Angeles area slowly succumbs to the relentless sheets of rain we’ve been having for the last two weeks.  And if you need some listening inspiration, check out what tunes we’ve been digging below. Stay cozy, wherever you are.

Good morning ladies, fellas, and the people that don’t give a fuck.  We’re going to keep this short and sweet today because once again I am behind on time, somehow.  Even though my work week got cut short (thank you massive server error), it only meant I had to spend my free time doing all the important errands I had been putting off.  But now there’s breakfast, coffee, my car doesn’t make quite as many weird sounds as it used to, and of course there’s good music to get me pumped on yet another rainy Southern California day.  Lets hope this gets your weekend off to a good start too.
