Mag both beautiful and arresting, a long overdue EP Favorite track: Little Birds, Moonbath.

AJ. Chillout downtempo done right. No Ibiza vibes here. Traces of FSOL at their danciest and Orb at their dubbiest while determinedly maintaining its own unique sound.
Favorite track: Little Birds, Moonbath.

Second Circle are delighted to announce a five track EP from Kaifeng born, Vancouver based musician Yu Su, titled ‘泉出通川为谷 / Roll With The Punches'

Recorded on the Coast Salish territory in Vancouver, three tracks on the EP grew out of a live set Yu Su began developing in 2018 for a series of performances. The record also features two collaborations; on the opening track “Little Birds, Moonbath” Michelle Helene Mackenzie appears on modular synth, with Vancouver locals Pender Street Steppers joining Yu Su for an improvised jam, appearing on guitar and synth across “Tipu’s Tiger”.

The title ‘泉出通川为谷 / Roll With The Punches' as Yu Su herself explains, “Is a metaphor translated from an old Chinese proverb, that roughly translates as ‘The Spring flows over plains and The Valley is born’. The proverb explains the origin of ‘The Valley’ and also speaks of a very Daoist abstraction in which the ‘Thousand Things’ are born and will eventually co-exist in the metaphysical system of ‘The Valley’.”
