Russian Circles is one of a number of American post-rock bands that broke through at the same sort of time in the early 2000s. Like their contemporaries Caspian and This Will Destroy you, Russian Circles has since become one of the seminal acts in the genre, with an equally impressive discography. Each release contains something a little different, with the often-visceral Station and Geneva being my two favourites from their collection.

To listen to their music, simply click on the album covers to be taken to their respective pages.

Now, I know the discussion of music can be an emotionally charged subject for some people, but I'm not claiming that anything is better than anything else. This is no more than a soap-box for me to promote music that I enjoy; maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't. That's fine.

If you've any recommendations based on this artist, or wish to promote some music that you yourself enjoy, please do so in the comments. Maybe I'll end up enjoying something enough to feature it myself.
