There’s something about the aftermath of a hot summer day and the Radio Dept. that go together. It’s like perfect come down music to the hot sun. The chill sounds of the new Radio Dept. single Freddie and the Trojan Horse with the icy guitar and the sleepy vocals have been getting a lot of play tonight. Today was just about perfect here in Seattle with 88 degrees Fahrenheit on the thermometer and on a Saturday to boot! Things are finally cooling down a little and the Radio Dept seem to be the perfect thing right about now. The new single isn’t much of a departure for the band but it does remind me more of their first album rather than the soundtrack-like second one. They even throw in a nice Talk Talk synthesized guitar in the middle just to keep you on your toes. But really, if you’ve spent the entire day in the sun like me this will take the edge off kind of like a popsicle in the shade.
