After their latest political rant (remember that “The New Improved Hypocrisy” was addressed against Sweden’s political class), Swedish band The Radio Dept is back with a new EP entitled “Never Follow Suit”, influenced by old Jamaican dub. Yes, you’ve read it right. The Radio Dept. goes dub and vindicates figures like King Tubby, Lee Perry, Keith Hudson and Augustus Pablo before other influences like Field Mice, Slowdive or The Pet Shop Boys. The yearning, wet, synth-adorned pop of the Malmö-born, Stockholm-based band is now filtered through panoramic delays with hot, hypnotic bass lines and guitar and synth loops surrounded by echoes. The EP will be available on 12" vinyl on 9th November (via Labrador). Only 1,000 copies will be released, so you’ll have to be really fast.
