“On their latest EP, The Whiskey Circle offer beachgoers and desert travelers an extension to their Summer mentality. The six tracks on ‘Into The Valley’ channel the duality of the Southern Californian spirit and aesthetic, through surf-rock inspired tracks such as ‘Sweet Darlin” and Americana songs like ‘Valley’. Because The Whisky Circle’s sonic palette stays the same song to song, the focus of the songs often shifts to the vibe and groove of each track. The unsung hero on this release is drummer Ben Johnson, who keeps every song perfectly paced in the pocket and never derails the tempo or feel of any track. The jangly rhythm guitars throughout the album pay homage to classic predecessor works such as Iggy Pop’s ‘Lust for Life’ while many of the reverb-dosed lead parts are more reminiscent of contemporaries such as La Luz. Though many of the instrumentals on the album are full and layered, they never interfere with Leanna Patterson’s vocals which cut through the mix like a knife. At her most intense, Patterson’s performances echo a version of Karen O that grew up Joshua Tree instead of Englewood. Clocking in at just under 20 minutes, ‘Into The Valley’ is the perfect release to reminisce about Summer to on your commute to work.” –Dizzy Spells
