Just in time to remind you to include their excellent Clinging to a Scheme on your year end list (thanks, but I didn’t need the reminder), Swedish shoegaze/pop band The Radio Dept are dropping a new EP on the world. The Never Follow Suit EP collects the album track of the same name, a dub remix of it called “Never Swallow Fruit”, and 3 other originals. The press release promises more in common with King Tubby and Augustus Pablo than Pet Shop Boys and My Bloody Valentine. Foggy pop melodies find their way through multi-layered soundscapes of panoramic delays, hypnotic bass lines, echo-ing analogue synthesizers and skanky guitar loops. It drops November 9 on Labrador.
