RADIO 4 returns with their sophomore album, Gotham. While sticking with the melodic sensibility that made their debut, New Song and Dance, a favorite among fans of anthemic post-punk, the band find themselves with a far more rhythmically aware record, ready-made for dance floors or basements. On new songs like, "Struggle," "Save Your City," and "Enthusiasts," the band urges you to snap out of the '90s-boom-years-daze and realize that everything is not all right, all to the sound of loping bass lines, scratchy guitars and throbbing beats. After recording the basic tracks by themselves, RADIO 4 hooked up with like-minded collaborators in the Death from Above production team of James Murphy and Tim Goldsworthy (previous credits include TURING MACHINE, ZERO/ZERO, THE RAPTURE, and UNKLE). With help from DFA, RADIO 4 has made a record akin to the work of PRIMAL SCREAM, JOY DIVISION, and PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED; a rock-dance hybrid with an agitated heart beating underneath.
