The Radio Dept. are determined to make up for lost time. As opposed to the four years it took them to release the follow-up to “Pet Grief” (Labrador, 2006), the Swedes are displaying an enviable amount of editorial activity as of late. An appendix to their remarkable “Clinging To A Scheme” (Labrador/PopStock!, 2010), the 5-track EP “Never Follow Suit” is out today, a collection of songs influenced—theoretically more than formally—mainly by Jamaican dub. Labrador has announced the happy arrival of “Passive Aggressive: Singles 2002-2010” for early next year, a double album that, as its title indicates, will gather all the songs—28 in total—The Radio Dept. have released as singles over their career. We’ll keep you updated for the official release date.
