Circuit Sweet Interview, Feature, News


December 26, 2018

It’s that time once again, as the countdown to the end of 2018 rapidly approaches we take a personal look back on familiar names, features and musicians’ best releases of the past 12 months. In what has been another crazy year of highs and lows- it’s the releases that have pulled a lot of people through the year. Now in it’s 8th year, Circuit Sweet will be hosting takeovers from the featured artists/musicians/labels and promoters of the site with their personal top releases of the year.

Continuing our annual end of year tradition; we let our favourites take over the site to tell us the records that have made their end of year lists. Telling us their favourite events/gigs and what we can look forward to from them next year.

Our next Rad Releases takeover comes from a legendary band who announced their return back in the summer. News of Daughters signing to Ipecac Recordings soon bombarded news feeds with a few teaser’s of a forthcoming new record. On October 26th, the quartet released their phenomenal new album You Wont Get What You Want,  which is not only our album of the year, but also appearing on so many end of year lists.

Daughters are vocalist Alexis Marshall, guitar player Nick Sadler, drummer Jon Syverson and bass player Sam Walker. We are thrilled to hand the site over to Lex and Jon to find out more about their year in music….

Firstly, Lex gives us his answers – 

 Top 5 releases of the year

1. Jaye Jayle “No Trail and other unholy paths”

2. Bambara “Shadow On Everything”

3. Exploded View “Obey”

4. Spiritual Cramp “Television”

5. Wound Man “Prehistory”·      

The best show you have played this year

Nov 9th in LA was great. Very interactive. The crowd seemed as happy to be there as we were. Crowd participation is important ·

The best show you have played this year

So far,every show has been great in its own way, although NY & LA stick out in my mind as complete ragers. People showed up to get down, the audience was not afraid to let loose. It didn’t feel like we were playing music at those people, we were playing with them

 The best gig you have attended

I enjoyed seeing METZ tear it up in Austin TX earlier this year. Besides that I can barely remember last week, no less other gigs I’ve attended in 2018
