Lesser matters is the debut album of the swedish group Radio Dept. It has received great reviews in all kinds of media in Sweden and The Radio Dept is concidered to be one of the great indiegroups for many years from now!
Though, great reviews in Sweden at the moment doesn't guarrantee that everyone will like this! At the moment it is a bit "hip" to be odd in Sweden and the record is actually a bit different! Mind you that groups like Muse, Feeder and Idlewild aren't rated at all in Sweden nowadays.
Even though I am saying that this record is a bit odd, I must admit that it is really exciting and that I was curious all the time when I first heard it, to hear what was coming next!
If I should try to describe the sound, I would like to draw paralells to 'Belle and Sebastian' and 'The Reindeer section' but the sound is more electric and agressive. Sometimes the songs are amazingly beatyful, sometimes agressive and melancolic. I would also say that you can hear some similarity to 'Snowpatrol' and 'Clearlake' in Radio Dept as well.
Anyhow, this is an exciting and beautiful record and it's well worth the money!
