Radio Moscow announces New Album!
MP3 for "Broke Down" Released for Free Download
Brain Cycles is Radio Moscow's second album, due out on Alive Records, April 14th. It's a new psychedelic trip into the musical territory originally charted by artists such as Randy Holden, Groundhogs, Peter Green and Flower Travellin' Band, just to name a few. Preview the album with the MP3 for "Broke Down" which has been released for free download. Hailing from Ames, Iowa, an unlikely rock n'roll town if there was one, and formed in 2006 by guitar prodigy Parker Griggs, Radio Moscow released their self-titled debut in 2007, with Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys handling the production. The musical love affair between Dan and mastermind of Radio Moscow, Parker Griggs, blossomed years ago when Parker approached Dan at a Black Keys gig in Colorado with his demo. Dan has been closely tied with the band ever since.
Stoner Rock called their 2007 self titled debut album "an astonishingly good debut," PopMatters hailed it as an "awesome record-...fun and slutty and cool," Modern Fix described their sound as "dirty-ass psych-powered blues rock ," and even Spin acknowledged it as "marrying the bluesy psychedelic fervor of Cream with the big, precise fretwork of Jimi Hendrix". After a full year on the road supporting that album, Parker Griggs headed back into the studio to cut the long awaited follow-up. On Brain Cycles he once again plays all the instruments (guitar, drums, and percussion) and assumes vocal duties as well as production credits, while the bass guitar is in the hands of young Zach Anderson. Conceived as an homage to the thrilling days of yesteryear, when vinyl was king and analog stereo ruled the world, Brain Cycles is a guilty pleasure best experienced at maximum volume while wearing headphones, if you want your brain to catch the waves!
