There’s always a band that manages to slip into the cracks, no matter how carefully I try to research what’s new. Take Radare for instance – a band out of Wiesbaden, Germany, who specialize in a noir-jazz (maybe darkjazz?) style that reminds me of Die Haut, who gained fame collaborating with Nick Cave a lifetime ago, and the incredibly prolific Bohren & der Club of Gore.
Think of a psychedelic rock band influenced by Jess Franco films playing jazz with Twin Peaks reruns being played near the bar. This is the vibe I get as I groove to the album.
