Radio Berlin

Indie bands have gone gaga over radio lately. Radio Vago, Radio 4 and Radio Berlin all clutter the virtual dial. Not that any of those bands actually get any rotation even on alternative airwaves, mind you, but Radio Berlin at least resembles early-era Cure with riffs that jostle listeners like violent waves and placid keyboards that whisper like the receding tide. Goth-tinged groups often let their melancholy moods overwhelm the music, but Radio Berlin’s gloomy tones complement its compositions, adding emotional gravity to spellbinding melodies.
