***MAGNAPOP's new album, The Circle Is Round, is the Atlanta-based group’s debut release for HHBTM Records, and is their sixth album, coming nearly a decade after their previous record, 2009’s Chase Park. Prior to this, the group had a fruitful run during the Alternative Rock heyday of the mid-90s, finding critical acclaim with 1994’s Hotboxing (with single “Slowly, Slowly”) and 1996’s Rubbing Doesn’t Help, which featured their most beloved song, “Open The Door.” The seeds that would blossom into The Circle Is Round were planted in 2011. “We reunited in 2011 when bassist SHANNON MULVANEY contacted us about playing a benefit for Criminal Records, a local record store,” says guitarist and songwriter RUTHIE MORRIS. “Playing together was easy, but we knew we needed time together to play our old songs again. The more we played together, the more we realized we wanted to work on new material.” The Circle Is Round was recorded at Furies Studios in Marietta, Georgia, and produced by the band and studio owner ED BURDELL—who worked with the band on one of their first recording sessions. Longtime fans of the band will find much to love with The Circle Is Round, while new listeners will get a taste of what converted listeners way back when to become lifetime fans. “Magnapop is kind of like Young Marble Giants backed by AC/DC”—Michael Stipe
