Circulatory System is a psychedelic rock musical ensemble formed by musician/painter Will Cullen Hart, and featuring Derek Almstead, Suzanne Allison, Peter Erchick, John Fernandes, Charlie Johnston, and Heather McIntosh.

Hart, part of the Elephant Six Collective, was one of the lead players in The Olivia Tremor Control. After that group disbanded in 2000, he and most of the other former Olivias, with the exception of Bill Doss (who was focusing on his solo project Sunshine Fix), and Eric Harris, formed Circulatory System. Neutral Milk Hotel's Jeff Mangum also contributed to their albums.

Side 3[edit]

Sample of Side 3 cover art

The album, Side 3, released in 2010, comprises remixes, demos, and alternate-takes of the band's 2009 release, Signal Morning. The limited-release, 12" album accompanied the deluxe package of Signal Morning. The covers for the album were handmade and individually stencil spray-painted with the number 3, on top of the original Signal Morning album cover. The inlay has the words "Circulatory System" stenciled on it. Side 3 cover art was released in various colors and variations of layout, designed by Hart.[1]
