С момента первого визита The Radio Dept. в Москву прошло полтора года. Тогда в Москве их удивляло все подряд: просторные павильоны метро, гигантские монументы на Поклонке, казалось, бесконечно высокая гостиница "Украина" и огромный зал клуба "Апельсин" - они искреннее говорили каждые полчаса: "Мы не верим, что все это происходит с нами. Это слишком". А я тогда не верила, что передо мной The Radio Dept. Для меня это тоже было - слишком.

Диссонанс в моей голове не проходит и по сей день. Это самые простые парни. Самые обычные шведские молодые люди, которые делают свою музыку. В Скандинавии это крайне распространенная форма досуга. Но почему-то именно их песни звучат особенно и для меня, и еще для нескольких тысяч меломанов в России. Есть в них что-то... слишком шведское, но по каким-то таинственным причинам понятное русскому человеку. Нечто. Я до сих пор пытаюсь слово подобрать... Пока не вышло.

I checked my email today and found a newsletter from Labrador. Looks like The Radio Dept. is releasing a 3-song single on June 4 & their new album should be out on September 10. As always, there's a free mp3. Here's the link:

"Freddie and the Trojan Horse"

Can't wait until September 10!

  • The Radio Dept. is hard at work on their new album, but will be slowed in coming months as Martin and ex-bassist Lisa are expecting their first child any day now.

  • Labrador will release new full-length albums from Irene, The Radio Dept. and Sambassadeur this coming fall in September, October and November respectively.

if you could just direct your browsers to this spectacular fansite launching soon:

THE RADIO DEPT. (Unofficial Site)

The Radio Dept. (unofficial site)

It's a great idea since so many people have been looking for information regarding The Radio Dept., but that page dedicated to them at Labrador Records just isn't enough. So here's a site made by fans for fans. It is still in its early stages, but i think it already looks particularly awesome and comprehensive. Imagine how amazing it would be if each one of us can contribute, it would be great if people can help out. Links to interviews, beautiful photos, bootlegs, reviews or just about anything Radio Dept. related are welcome so we can all do our part in making the site FANTASTIC. Hopefully with a few more tweaks here and there, it will be launched properly soon.

man behind spectacular site is a cupidinous person who refuses to be named, just thought i'd mention. :)

"A quick note to let you all know that next Thursday's planned Radio Dept. show has been postponed due to circumstances beyond our control. Apologies to all ticket holders and anyone who has made travel arrangements for the inconvenience.

The show will be rescheduled for January when the band will play a UK tour. More details of that will be circulated in the next few weeks.

Ticketweb will be contacting all ticket holders to offer a refund or confirm you would like to keep your ticket for the rescheduled show inJanuary.

Again, sorry for any problems this has caused. In the meantime, the band's new album is in UK shops this week. Check out the NME and Artrocker for very nice reviews. And watch out for the next issue of Word which features a track from the album on the cover mounted CD."


Moved to January 7, 2007. according to our anonymous commenter. :)
