Just Enjoy The Music Of When Circles Around The Sun Meets Joe Russo & Bonsai Universe's "Ghosts"

On October 18th, The Royal Potato Family will be releasing a new four-song EP featuring the collaboration between Joe Russo and Circles Around The Sun. This release is bittersweet because of the untimely death of Circles Around The Sun guitarist, Neal Casal. These four songs came about from a jam session between Russo and the band. The connection was so positive that a proper release of this music was necessary. The new album titled "Circles Around The Sun Meets Joe Russo" begins with the spaced out funk jam of "When I Was At Peace." The music get even more rhythmic as the performers lock into the floating, atmospheric journey of "Get It Right The First Time." The band certainly picks the tempo up with the swift pace of "Added Addition," before finishing with the most improvisational sounding piece, "Peace (Reprise)."

Guitarist Woody Aplanalp returns with the sophomore effort from his musical project, Bonsai Universe. The new album titled "Too Many Ghosts" takes you on a sonic journey with its psychedelic nature, as Woody looks to expand upon his sound since his 2017 debut release "Moonstream." During that time, Woody Aplanalp has worked along side a number of different artists including Bobby Womack, Lauryn Hill and Nels Cline.

The new Bonsai Universe release features fifteen tracks, beginning with the sweet blues/rock groove of "It's A Shame" and the more nostalgic, psychedelic pop melody of "Beepsy." Woody looks to stretch his sound even further out with the "trippy" feel of "Altadena" and the more playful tune "Do Something." The wonderful folk sounds of "Ode To Ridge Road"  and "Sideways Summer" makes his music much more accessible. The new Bonsai Universe album finishes with the bluesy feel of "Rain" and the classic, psych-pop trip to "My Little Corner Of The World."
