Alek Darson: Flight Impressions Official Dual Playthrough

Download Panopticon EP here:

Here's a first Dual Playthrough from Panopticon! It's great how the music turns out different when energies coexist in the moment. I had a major pleasure of doing this video with Hadrien Pierson, the original drummer for this song on the studio recording.
The song came to be from a creative response assignment for a literature class I took at Berklee. Dr Douglas Kohn had us read a great book by Alexie Sherman, called Flight, and create under impressions. My assignment was the song you're listening now.
Enjoy this alternate take of "Flight Impressions"

6. 00:04

During my last 10 years of professional music experience I went through many emotional states. Being in numerous different projects and acts gave me insight into a large scope of personal mindsets, ranging from experiencing the lowest of disapproval and despise, to the highest bliss of love and acceptance. This EP’s musical realm depicts all those emotions about the world and what they came down to. I look at it as a Panopticon, a perfect all seeing prison, where a single guard is the omni-observant. The big question stands: are we the guard, or the prisoner? I hope this music gets you a bit closer to my innermost world.

Marc Pattison: joins Circle II Circle line up

Zak Stevens - Lead Vocals
Mitch Stewart - Bass/Keyboards, Vocals
Christian Wentz- Guitars, Vocals
Marc Pattison - Guitars, Vocals
Henning Wanner - Keyboards, Vocals
Adam Sagan - Drums, Vocals

Circle II Circle is excited to announce the addition of guitarist/songwriter Marc Pattison to our lineup. Marc brings a wealth of musicianship, songwriting, and production skills to the band. His resume includes the band Futures End, where he previously worked with CIIC guitarist Christian Wentz, sharing the lead guitar role and songwriting duties. He has also had several of his works published in the TV and film industry in the past few years. Marc currently endorses ESP Guitars, DiMarzio Pickups, and Steinberg/Yamaha Inc., just to name a few. The timing of Marc joining us couldn't have been better as he has been a very active contributor with guitar work, songwriting, as well as production and engineering on our upcoming studio album. The thing that's really awesome about Marc coming on board with us is that he's super creative in the writing process and this is bringing a lot of new inspiration in all areas. He has basically created an entirely new role within the band that we've never had and that's exactly what we need right now going into our seventh studio album. Marc's inaugural tour will be our upcoming European tour in October when we will support our current release 'Seasons Will Fall' and a number of classic Circle II Circle songs.

Tommy Bolin: Zephy - The 1969 Debut Album is Reissued On Both CD & Vinyl

Tommy Bolin: Zephyr
Los Angeles, CA - Tommy Bolin fans, you are in for a treat! The 1969 recorded debut of the guitar great performing with his first major act, Zephyr, the blues and jazz influenced rock and roll steamroller fronted by powerhouse female vocalist, Candy Givens, will be reissued courtesy of Purple Pyramid Records starting August 5. With newly remixed and remastered audio created under the supervision of founding member David Givens, this gem of an album has truly been restored to the band’s original vision. As Givens says, “For the first time you can hear what we heard before everything went wrong. I’m happy with the results!”

Happier still will be Bolin fans everywhere as a treasure trove of unreleased live material and studio improvisations were also uncovered in the process of remixing the album. These include performances of the band at small clubs in their home state of Colorado as well as Reed’s Ranch where the band opened for The Grateful Dead. In addition, the studio rehearsals showcase Bolin’s adventurous playing on two free form jams as he lays down blistering solos and eerie atmospheres courtesy of his Echoplex effect.

A limited edition 2,000 unit pressing of the reissue in a 3CD deluxe box set was released in May and has already been sold out, but a single disc version is set to arrive August 5 and a special 180 gram colored vinyl pressing will follow later this year.

Get a glimpse into the early salad days of this inimitable virtuoso whose rise to fame occurred nearly as fast as his untimely exit. His music lives on!
