Albums Of The Week: Circus Devils | Squeeze The Needle

Just when you think all of Bob Pollard's albums sound the same, he throws you for a loop with this eccenctric, eclectic set from his psychedelic garage-rock side piece.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Formed in 2001, the psychedelic rock trio Circus Devils features vocalist Robert Pollard, backed by brothers Todd Tobias and Tim Tobias.

For their first album in six years and 15th overall, Circus Devils are back with Squeeze The Needle, a funhouse romp full of rock ’n’ roll swagger and childlike glee. The pounding psychedelia of the single The Owl Presents… harkens back to The Doors. Mixed into the 20-track song collage are heavy rock thumpers (Street Toughs, Mama’s Got A Brand New Snake), cryptic interludes (Age Of Transfusion), and pretty acoustic pieces (Difficult Dreamer, The Joke is Over).”
