Martin Brandlmayr (drums), Martin Siewart (guitar) and John Norman (bass) is Radian. Their curious 7-track offering, Scary Objects, sees the Austrian experimentalists explore a recorded collection of feedback, fiddlings and glitches before intricately melding soundbites into fully-functioning yet bizarrely unconventional tracks.
This trio try to circuit bend a few genres into agreeing with eac hother, taking their electronic tendencies and twilit found sounds and parking them next to a crooning, pian-twinkling kind of alt-country that sounds like it's receding into the distance. 'Verses How Gebe' sounds like it's been engineered and tinkered to death in the studio, but also perfected over nights of the band sat out on the front porch, mumbling stories to one another.
