iTunes Review

With its stunning 2012 sophomore album, the Tallahassee, Fla.–based Go Radio do away with any and all trace elements of its frontman’s former band, Mayday Parade. Where Jason Lancaster carried vestiges of his old emo-pop style into Go Radio's 2011 debut, Lucky Parade, Close the Distance sounds noticeably matured, with larger, sprawling sonic backdrops. “I Won’t Lie” sets the tone as panoramic harmonies and soaring melodies resonate in multilayered harmonies. The less dramatic “Baltimore” follows as Lancaster dips into his lower register, where his voice breaks nicely with a palpable restraint in those emotive inflections. The standout “Collide” locks and clicks with kinetic arrangements that move with metronomic clockwork, especially the stuttered guitar riffs and drums that somehow sound simultaneously mechanical and human. Over this, Lancaster's choice of lyrics and phrasing fit the melody like a well-tailored suit. Similarly, the attractive title track snowballs from the beginnings of a ballad into a powerful and authoritative anthem that’s just waiting to score a romantic moment on a show like Grey's Anatomy or One Tree Hill.

Customer Reviews

Completely crushed my expectations.

So I've had this album for a few days before it "officially" released and I have listened to the album nonstop since then. With most albums I'll listen to them a few times through and then slowly mix them in with my other music. But Close the Distance has stayed on repeat for days now and I'm not yet skipping any songs. They're all super catchy and have a very unique Go Radio sound. For all of you that are going to compare this to Jason's days with Mayday Parade, just stop now. This isn't MP, this is Go Radio. I think this album truly rounds out and defines their sound and makes them stand out as an original group. I've waited for this album for as long as it's been announced, and I can truly say that I have not been let down one bit. BUY IT!

I'm out.


Yes, this album has a completely different sound to it than any other Go Radio release, but as I drove back to campus listening to it tonight I was in complete awe of Jason's ability to form lyrics and piano into something incredible and genuine.

Buy this album. Do yourself a favor.

You'd better ...

… be downloading this album right now. Why are you still reading? Unless you've already purchased this and are downloading as you read these reviews. Good. Yes, that should be the case.


Formed: 2007 in Tallahassee, FL

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Singer/guitarist Jason Lancaster left Mayday Parade in April 2007, shortly after the band finished recording the album A Lesson in Romantics for Fearless Records. Burnt out on music and needing a break, Lancaster quickly discovered, however, that he couldn't stay away from playing for long, and by 2008 he had moved on and formed the similar-sounding Go Radio. Based in Tallahassee, Florida, he recruited bassist Matt Burns and drummer Steven Kopacz, and after going through two guitarists, the band...
