Product Description

Debut album from Sweden's The Radio Dept. Brilliant breathy melodies & punchy rhythms cascade over a foundation of fuzz & feedback. Their sound is refreshingly classic rooted in c86 & early 90s shoegaze yet their style is crisp & modern. Against The Tide & Where Damage Isn't Already Done are the perfect meeting of The Field Mice & early Primal Scream while Why Won't You Talk About It reminds us of Psychocandy era Jesus & Mary Chain.

By Glenn on June 9 2005
Format: Audio CD
I've had this album for about six weeks now, and strangely enough I always manage to listen to this album some time during the day. Some of the most amazing Indie pop that has ever come out of Sweden, these guys have a great mix of synth and filtered voices together with guitars and drums that create one of the most unique and satisfying sounds I have ever heard. The Radio Dept. is definately a rare find in Sweden's music industry, where it seems like every other band coming out of that country make indie pop that want to sound like Death Cab For Cutie.
The only band that would rival these guys right now would be Sambassadeur.

even though it was apparently released in 2003. imagine the best parts of yo la tengo, new order and psychocandy-era jesus and mary chain rolled into one. my collection is approaching 1000 CDs, and this one still stands out from the crowd almost 3 years after i first heard it. "where damage...", "against the tide" and "strange things can happen" are instant classics and reason enough to get this album. the fact that the other 10 are gorgeous pop hits as well is just a bonus.

By "halfadog" on May 19 2003
Format: Audio CD
Fantastic debut album from this Swedish outfit. Their sound owes a lot to Jesus & Mary Chain and dancey dream-pop, but they pull off a vibe that's entirely their own. The songs are varied enough, the melodies ultra-sweet without being sickeningly twee, the production not too dense or impenetrable. It floats, but doesn't disappear. 13 tracks, no bad songs.
