Massachusetts post-rock outfit Caspian are back with their fifth full-length album 'On Circles,' out January 24th, 2020 on Triple Crown Records. Host Mike Moschetto sits down with the entire band to talk about the new record, where they've been and where they're going.
We start with the humble origins of the band, then flash forward to the present day and discuss the ways in which writing and recording 'On Circles' was so much different than any of Caspian's earlier records.
The largely-instrumental band dishes on the decision to write more songs featuring lead vocals, the state of the "post-rock" genre in 2020 and their favorite settings & activities for absorbing new music for the first time.
Despite headlining (and selling out) bigger rooms all over the world, even standard-bearers of their genre like Caspian have to work day jobs when they're not on the road to make ends meet. We discuss those jobs and the economic forces that keep a band going for over 15 years, steadily growing all the while.
Caspian's fifth full-length studio album 'On Circles' is out now. The band has had their say over the last three episodes, so in this final installment Mike speaks with some VIPs in the band's orbit: Kyle Durfey from Pianos Become the Teeth, Will Benoit of The Radar Studio, 'On Circles' producer Will Yip, Yvette Young from Triple Crown labelmates Covet, and documentarian & videographer Ryan Mackfall.
Haven’t heard the podcast yet
But I’m sure it’s great because Caspian is a top 4, maybe top 3, post rock band. Definitely the top post rock band from New England.
Best new podcast of 2020 so far.
Caspian is my favorite band. Therefore, because I’m biased, this podcast automatically gets my vote for best podcast of the year so far.
