It’s been 2 years since Joe’s last EP release. Not one to remain idle, he has been performing at clubs and festivals, carefully honing the skills he would need to pull Astral Circus out of the ether. Delving deeper into the world of sound design, he was able to refine his madcap- dixieland-cartoon-circus vibe with even more refined and psychedelic strains of forward thinking mid tempo glitch-hop, inspired by such a diverse soundest as Enig’matik records, Raymond Scott, and Frank Zappa.

The title track is a nothing less than a mardi gras fiesta, evoking the sound of New Orleans Second Line parades and forward thinking sound design reminiscent of Tipper and Bogtrotter. “Mr. Rhythm” is a collaboration with Mark, Oi, guitarist for Clinton Fearon and John Tchicai, in the style of Mr. Bill. “Zappa” is a tribute to one of the greatest composers in modern history and a huge influence of Joe Daddy ...... These releases build upon the musical vision that began with “11:11” ( Swamp Music ) and continued with “A Few Of My Friends Vol 1” ( Street Ritual ).
