The Radio Dept. – Where Damage Isn't Already Done

Every time I listen to this song it makes me happy. Adorable rarely gets evoked this wonderfully and no better label than the majestic Labrador to bring it to fruition. Of course the Radio Dept. have been around over a decade now, constantly turning out small classics and continually being overlooked despite some notable exceptions like Sophia Coppola who used several of their tracks on the ‘Maria Antoinette’ soundtrack. ‘Where Damage Isn’t Already Done’ is a relative oldie, taken from the Swedish band’s debut album ‘Lesser Matters’. It is distinctly lo-fi in nature but so rich in indie deities it may take a couple of listens for you to be fully conversant. The combination of the twinkle twinkle little star guitars and Johan Duncanson’s barely uttered voice tweely is a delight. Despite a recent lull in activities the Radio Dept. return with a new (politically charged, gulp) EP next month titled ‘Freddie and the Trojan Horse’. KD

    The band’s finest moment, though hopefully the new album will offer songs equally great!
