Following their 2009 all-acoustic release Gringo, Circus Devils are back in form with Mother Skinny. This time, the Devils run the gamut from ham-fisted hard rock thumpers to freak-pop to pretty, ethereal numbers, all weaved together in a seamless song-collage. As always, the band is steadfast in their unpredictability.

Founded by Robert Pollard (Guided By Voices), Ohio's Circus Devils have been lurking under the radar since 2001. Mother Skinny is their eighth album.

Note: detailed album and track credits provided by Todd Tobias.
