The One AM Radio is a trio based in Los Angeles, where the sun hasn’t completely thawed their New England roots. They make music about the feeling you get while driving home, fast, late at night, through half-empty streets.

The project began in New England, where Hrishikesh Hirway was studying design and photography at Yale. With a borrowed guitar, a 4-track, and a drum machine, he ... Read more in Amazon's The One AM Radio Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Summer Day Atmosphere 16 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
A cool, slightly melancholy ambiance of weaving tunes, gentle harmonies and acoustic instruments occasionally edged with subtle techno. Best heard on a still sunny Sunday afternoon when lounging on your hammock. These distinctive songs echo with a calming purity. The occasional violin is chilling and the thoughtful lyrics, if a little indistinctive at times, voyage over life's experiences. Starting from 'What You Gave Away' is an instant canvas painted with a northwest Pacific beach. Under 'Thunder and Gale' brings impression of a welcome storm on a hot day. My second favourite, 'Drowsy Haze' is a summer days reflections only capped by 'I Didn't Speak the Language' a genuine lyric free song. These 13 songs are all wonderful, each yielding a new element to the dimensions of colour, time and place. For me personally these songs take me back to the warm days summer of 2004. I'm listening to this again in the summer of 2006. An album that will stand the test of time. In my >1000 album collection this rates in my top 50.

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 years from now... 9 Feb 2005
By Joe Buck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
...i'll still expect to be listening to this album. This music is like a warm sweater, and every time I listen to it I find something else I like about it. It's meaningful music that never becomes overly sentimental. The kind of cd that sits well next to Kings of Convenience's "Quiet is the new loud" and REM's "Automatic for the People." You will not regret buying this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bring it on 11 May 2004
By alexander laurence - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I never have heard of this before. I was listening to it expecting nothing. It is a semi-folk record. It is mostly a one-man band. That man is named Hrishikesh Hirway. It is sometimes a very intimate record. Songs like "Under Thunder and Gale" and "Drowsy Haze" set the mood of the album, which is very sadcore. Some other songs use more electronic elements. It's much more at times like Xiu Xiu or Arab Strap. Most of album is composed of songs about uncomfortable states. The One AM Radio is all about saying things without saying them. It is worthwhile but understated. They are touring a lot this year and it's interesting to see what they will be like.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic music 1 May 2006
By R. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This album is fantastic, and despite previous comments, hrishikesh is quite captivating live. It is not his fault if he gets improperly booked in a larger venue containing plenty of impatient the snake the cross the crown fans who aren't familiar with his music.

The album is not only for fans of indie/singer songwriters with mellow electronic / ambient production. Anyone can appreciate this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars sounds great on vinyl 7 Jun 2004
By Matt Proffitt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I saw these guys at Koo's in downtown Long Beach the other night. They absolutely took my breath away. Very intimate, beautiful music. As the name suggests, it sounds great late at night. Reminds me a little of the soundtracks to Lost in Translation and Solaris.
