Radio Moscow (2007)



To na prawdę krzepiące uczucie - móc posłuchać takiej płyty. Człowiek od razu nabiera wiary, że być może nie jest aż tak źle z tą współczesną muzyką i młodzi muzycy mają trochę wyobraźni i dobrych wzorów z przeszłości, a co najważniejsze umiejętności. Tak właśnie jest z amerykańską grupą Radio Moscow czerpiącą z muzyki końca lat sześćdzisiątych. Wspaniały bluesowy drive, który czuć praktycznie w każdym utworze, szczypta psychodelii, młody duch - i przepis na świetną płytę gotowy. W muzyce grupy pobrzmiewają elementy Blue Cheer, Jimi Hendrixa, Cream. Mam nadzieję, że nie będzie to jedyna płyta tego tria.


Mistreating Queen

The self-titled debut is 10 tracks of “garage punk filtered through the blues, with“. What does all that mean? I am not entirely sure but I like the way it reads. In my own words, I would have to say Radio Moscow’s debut cd is electric guitar fueled blues rock that can find a groove and ride it so hard it’ll scar your speakers. Think Wolfmother meets The Black Keys, and you’ll probably have the worst analogy in the history of music reviews, but I’m gonna use the fucker. For real though, this is a cd that forces you to stomp your feet and play air guitar from the second the opening bass solo of “Frustrating Sound”starts.


Frustrating Sound

Named for the pre-Cold War precursor to the propaganda outlet Voice of Russia, Radio Moscow are a blues-rock trio from Ames, IA, with a similarly anachronistic retro feel. Where bands like the Black Keys (whose guitarist Dan Auerbach produced Radio Moscow's debut album) and the White Stripes play with a stripped-down, modern take on the old power trio sound, Radio Moscow hark back to the glory days of the power trio, when Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Blue Cheer roamed the earth and the power of the Marshall stack was unquestioned. Radio Moscow formed in Ames in 2004, a collaboration between two garage punk enthusiasts whose tastes had shifted into the heavy side of late-'60s psychedelia.

Guitarist, singer, songwriter, and drummer Parker Griggs and bassist Luke McDuff approached Auerbach with a demo following a Black Keys gig, and the more established musician was impressed enough to both produce their debut album and to get the duo signed to his label, Alive Records. Although Griggs and McDuff recorded their self-titled first album as a duo, the pair hired drummer Mayuko to complete the trio for live purposes shortly before the album's release. ~ Stewart Mason, All Music Guide
