Circa is a Prog Rock band formed by veteran rockers Tony Kaye (original YES keyboard and organ player) and Billy Sherwood (who took Chris Squire’s place after his untimely passing in 2015), with Ricky Tierney on bass and Scott Connor on drums. The band has existed since 2007 and has so far scored some three releases in addition to a live and out-takes collection (only digitally avail) plus a DVD recorded in one of their tours.
 
“Valley of the Windmill” is their latest album, and while it’s about fifty minutes long, it only features some four songs. It follows the blue prints of prog as defined by bands like Yes, Gentle Giant, Marillion, Genesis and even Porcupine Tree. Each and every of the four songs, despite the length, features pleasant soundscapes, with quirky rhythms shifting over a melting landscape, effortlessly in a trippy, but most excellent way. Very good stuff indeed!
