Dylan Ryan/Sand to Perform at The Burlington

Dylan Ryan/Sand

Two years after the release of their impressive debut, fusion unit/power trio Dylan Ryan/Sand released Circa, a purposeful continuation of the aesthetic that the group had fostered on its first record. Featuring guitarist Timothy Young (Reggie Watts, Wayne Horvitz), bassist Devin Hoff (Nels Cline Singers, Yoko Ono, Cibo Matto) and leader / composer / drummer Dylan Ryan (Icy Demons, Herculaneum) the new recording has a wholly unique styling, which ranges from Melvins-esque sludge trodden proto-grunge to blistering fusion passages of Mahavishnu Orchestra.
