Image of Radio Dept.


The Radio Dept. was formed in 2001 by Johan Duncanson and Martin Carlberg. The name was stolen from an art pop band Johan had had with a couple of highschool friends during the later part of the 90s. (A little later bass player Lisa Carlberg and drummer Per Blomgren joined the band as they started rehearsing in the way bands so often do.) In 2002 swedish music magazine Sonic drew attention to ...

4.0 out of 5 stars Hazy, lovely shoegazing 29 July 2006
Format:Audio CD
Second Album Syndrome frequently gets waived for bands who never quite made it. Recently, as The Futureheads and Snow Patrol crumbled under the pressure of their new-found adoration with dull albums designed to hold on to mass appeal, TV On The Radio and Broken Social Scene made beautiful, adventurous and rewarding follow-ups. And so it is with Sweden's The Radio Dept., who won a huge amount of acclaim and places on Best Of 2004 lists (somehow finishing in the top 10 of the NME list) with the astonishing 'Lesser Matters', a hazy, dream-like album and a slow-burning gem to almost everyone who bought it. Despite the attention, The Radio Dept. hardly became a household name, although Pet Grief was anticipated highly for people lucky enough to know about their brand of shoegazy indie-pop.

'Pet Grief' is a more laid-back affair than its predecessor, with none of the loud, 'Loveless'-style bursts of nosie found on the first half of that album. Though the whole album works beautifully as a whole- best played laying down gazing at the clouds (or, I guess, shoes)- there are a few immediate standouts. They have clearly mastered the difficult art of beautiful pop songs, which were so abundant on their first album. Single 'The Worst Taste In Music' is probably their best yet, for both the tune and the hazy, gorgeous production. It's also a success lyrically- "He's got the worst taste in music," sings frontman Johan Duncanson of an ex's new boyfriend, "if I didn't know this I'd lose it". 'What Will Give' is the other highlight, a sweet lament backed by scratchy pianos. Each track is glazed with wispy synths and buried guitar, and on songs like the title track, it lends a nice '80s feel to juxtapose with the hipster-friendly indie-rock sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars surprisingly very good 27 Oct 2007
By geooxf
Format:Audio CD
I stumbled across this album by accident (as one does!), and wow....what a laid back and enjoyable sound......It caused me to seek out more information about them - which is very scarce. Their previous album 'Lesser Matters' is also a treat....can't wait for their next one......Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW...what an awesome album 2 Jan 2007
By Chris Howard - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Pet Grief is an incredible album from beginning to end. In my opinion, it's best listened to in one sitting...this album is truly an experience. For those who learned of the Radio Dept. from Marie Antoinette, this cd doesn't have the songs from Marie Antoinette on it, but if you liked those songs, you should like this album too. Beautiful hazy guitars, driving rhythms, electronic warmth, and gorgeously hidden vocals make this an album like no other. Very reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine and similar bands. This is just an all around wonderful piece of work. Pick it up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible 27 Mar 2007
By MyEars!MyEars! - Published on
Format:Audio CD
This is seriously one of the best albums I've heard in years and years...proof that big production on a record means absolutely nothing if you have brilliant songs. Packed so full with dripping, gorgeous melody that it almost makes you sick on eating too much chocolate. Truly stunning, achingly beautifull and inspiring..whatever, I'm going for another listen and to float off into space!

5.0 out of 5 stars Welcome the Swedish Pop Invasion 2 Jun 2006
By M. JEFFREY MCMAHON - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Shimmering melancholy guitars harken to the spirit of The Smiths but with a moody, blissed-out update. Fans of Radio Dept. won't be disappointed in what is perhaps their most ambitious album, grand and epic, almost a dozen solid songs. If you enjoy the bright, sometimes dolorous Swedish pop sound, you might want to check out Ronderlin, Wan Light, Jans Lekman, Montgolfier Brothers, and Blue Boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Noisepop At It's Finest 12 May 2010
By MirroredRain - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Taking a night drive through the city and hearing the rain patter on the roof while I enshroud my car with the lush melodic sounds of the Radio Dept's second album is an experience I will never forget. There is something about this group that stands out above the rest, and 2006's Pet Grief is no exception. While considerably more mellow and moody than the Radio Dept's first LP, Lesser Matters, Pet Grief features articulate use of MIDI and less guitar-heavy music.

While each track is a delicacy, "What Will Give" has to be my favorite. The honesty and sensitivity of the keyboards that texture this song build the emotional level of the album, and help you soar on your listening journey through the clouds, and then back down to earth at the album's end. If you enjoy Shoegaze and Dreampop, this album is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars "The Queen is Dead" of the oughties 28 Sep 2007
By M. D. Chitwood - Published on
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe how unknown this band appears to be in the US. This is astonishingly beautiful ethereal dream pop with outstanding lyrics. I know I'll be listening to this record 20 years from now. Just download to "Tell" and you'll want to buy it. I cannot wait to see them live.
