Sounds curiously like early Front 242
The suggestion of Primal Scream becomes apparent at just after the 2 minute mark.
This sounds like a quote from an ONION article.
sounds like a segue track.
Swedish election on Sunday - lots of neo-fascism going on here
Reminds me a bit of Micro-Phonies era Cabaret Voltaire.
Bit disappointed it doesn't sound more like Radio Dept though. I've missed them.
if it sounds like the bands namedropped in here, I'll lose it. Radio Dept. + proto-industrial is the like the exact kind of musical equation I salivate over.
Sounds good to me.
not bands providing the =
s'alright, this is probably going to be a really satisfying =
This is one of the best things they've ever done. Reminds me a bit of Vanishing Point by New Order.
Angelo Badalamenti's Laura Palmer's Theme from Twin Peaks crossed with Behaviour-era Pet Shop Boys. All-in-all, very 1990.
Wonder if it is being omitted from their next album as it is like their earlier stuff than the more synthpop sound they have been moving towards.
I utterly love this band.
and I have to say, Sweden must have a real problem with fascism, because this place is a true life dystopian death sphere. It is the worst. There is a minotaur somewhere in this labyrinth and it eats human flesh. I hate it so much. They sell meatballs. Fuck."
been awaiting for this.
The overtly political direction comes as no surprise after the last 2 singles.. I wonder if the sound will be more confrontational. The new song I heard them play live recently sounded very poppy...
Saw them 3 weeks ago and they played a couple of the new songs, both of which sounded fantastic. Can't wait for this.
Seems to be cited as a weak spot but I think it's wonderful.
Think I love all 3 of their albums equally to be honest. Each a bit different, each superb.
It ups and downs a bit but its just pretty different from Lesser Matters which put people off.
The opening intro to Its Personal (my fave Radio Dept song) is their Everything In Its Right Place/Kid A moment... self-assured with a slight swagger of being different to what came before and just a really beautiful opening statement.
didn't like them ditching the shoegaze scuzz in favour of lush Pet Shop Boys pop stuff. More fool them.
Always evolving, always writing awesome tunes. Literally nothing not to love.
It was my entry point for the band though so the change in sound from Lesser Matters was not an issue for me.
Always A Relief is my favourite Radio Dept. tune.
Pet Grief, as a whole, has a wonderfully understated sound, less spiky and more melancholic than Lesser Matters. Even the shoegaze of Every Time is reserved. I've probably grown to love it more than the debut.
Said it up-thread about Occupied, but there's a Pet Shop Boys in this album too.
Like all their albums.
on the case
the vocals worked for past albums, but they make everything so beige on this one.
Surely this is just part of the Radio Dept. sound?
They sound like they do on all their other albums.
It's yet another wonderful, lovely album. My only reservation is both the first and last tracks keep threatening to turn into big throbbing disco monsters...but never actually do. Musical edging.
