It’s always a challenge for small instrumental rock outfits to keep an audience’s attention, but Chicago’s Russian Circles, drawing from the crushing math-rock of Don Caballero, find novel ways to keep their sound evolving thanks to imaginative progressions and primal riffs.

While they’ll probably never draw the crowds that Tool gets, their fist-pumping post-metal rocks just as hard.
