First The Radio Dept. album in 6 years! The group’s second album, Pet Grief or 2010’s Clinging to a Scheme are musts for fans of the dreamy alternative sound (TRD is like the smoother, Swedish version of Stone Roses / My Bloody Valentine / Cocteau Twins), and the band’s 4th LP does not disappoint. Effervescent and breezy, synths and drum machines create shimmery backdrops for chilled-out vocals that quietly protest against the current political climate of Sweden, check out: “Swedish Guns,” “Occupied,” “Thieves of State,” “Sloboda Narodu,” “We Got Game,” and “Can’t Be Guilty.” This is the limited-edition (1000 copies) clear vinyl pressing w/ one-sheet insert (lyrics on one side, band info. And photo on the other).
