CD Review: Radiola Gives Us New Music In "Standard Broadcast"
They album begins with the gentle acoustic sounds of “Euphoria,” which is what you may feel at times listening to this album. The wonderful harmonizing between the band members just captures the complete essence of Radiola’s sound. Joe’s voice sounds so true and fragile that you can’t help but get lost in his well-thought lyrics in “Edge of the Rhine” and “Gone Is Gone.” The instrumental “Ill Tempered Tiple” shows another side to this band’s sound as they add a bit of flamenco flair, while “Half Glass” gives us the country-side, to their folk-jazz sound. One of the album’s highlight is the heartfelt lyrics of “Chalk” that are just supported perfectly by the gentle music floating in the background. The album closes with some of McDermott’s best songwriting in “Angel’s Eyes” which features Beth Blackerby on violin.
