In the late 1970s and through the 1980s there was a lot happening on the German "post Krautrock underground" that few people knew about, lots of independent artists doing their own thing, either via small labels or doing it themselves. Circles were one of these bands.

Based on the Frankfurt suburbs, they consisted of the multi-instrumental duo of Dierk Leitert (synthesizer, sequencer, drums, bass, guitar, voice, saxophone, flute) and Mike Bohrmann (guitars, bass, synthesizer) plus a few collaborators. Carrying the torch of 70s bands like Cluster, Harmonia or Liliental into the 80s, Circles were also contemporaries of groups like Throbbing Gristle, Ilitch and Nurse With Wound so you can also expect some similarities on their music.

'More Circles' was their second album, released in 1984 as a private pressing on their tiny Einhorn label. Experimental krautrock with lots of psychedelic guitar, keyboards, motorik drums, drones, proto-ambient sounds and avant-garde / dadaist touches.

RIYL: Harmonia, Cluster, Fripp/Eno, Nurse With Wound, Throbbing Gristle, Chrome, Eroc, Heldon, Conrad Schnitzler.
