The Radio Dept.
January 10, 2010 § 1 Comment
My external hard drive is dead. I lost the adaptor. All my music is on the external hard drive. Argh! Technical collapse. Involuntary musical ascesis. Since I have been to lazy to find new stuff, I have just listened to the same single band the last couple of weeks. Fortunately, my limitations were good company. Sometimes it can be healthy to be limited! The band I was lucky to still have on my internal hard drive is called The Radio Dept. and come from Malmö, southern Sweden. They play soft shoegaze, and by some reason they remind me entirely of other scandinavian bands (even though the sound is not particularly scandinavian, or what do you think?). I would say something between norwegian singer-songwriters Kings of Convenience and danish shoegaze-poppers Epo-555 (recommended listening too). I went to a concert with The Radio Dept. in Stockholm some weeks ago, which dissapointed me a lot. My friend was there with me, and she is such an extraordinary fan that she didn’t even notice that the PA-system sucked and sounded like somebody pucking on overdrive. Testifies to the power of Radio Dept. fandom.
