Das Rad - Radiation [12"]
A pummelling successor to their EP, Das Rad's first full length album rides some smokey, super heavy psych-rock vibes while still flirting with with the dark post punk mumblings of Siouxsie Sioux and Mark E Smith.
From Weird Canada and the drummed ears of Andy Clark:
The first two times I turned on Radiation, I immediately turned it down. After the initial blast of feedback subsided, the music became a wild expression of fuzz destruction: a truck driver drives their truck into the fog, later waking to find that they’ve arrived in a town where they are not the only visitor. “1331”, “Sake of Sound” and “Afterbang” play like a gekiga comic: unassuming at first, until deep evil threads itself into reality. Beware the fog… was it a self-inflicted manifestation of guilt after all?
