More than a decade ago, Vermont-bred jam band Dispatch became huge stars in an alternate dimension inhabited almost entirely by dorm- and yurt-dwelling harmony enthusiasts. That they broke up in 2002 at the height of their popularity only added to the mythology (their farewell show was expected to draw 10,000 people; more than 100,000 showed up). On Circles Around the Sun, their first studio effort in 12 years, the trio stick to their signature ’60s folk sweetness, shoulder-shrugging guitar jangle, and Afro-tinged rhythm tricks. It all peaks with ”Josaphine,” a should-be runaway hit in that parallel universe where six-minute blues rambles top the Hot 100. B
