Editors’ Notes

Radio Moscow, largely the work of Parker Griggs, records as a true power trio this time around. Drummer Paul Marrone joins up with Parker and bassist Anthony Meier for more late-‘60s and early-‘70s debauchery. Griggs clearly knows the catalogs of Blue Cheer, Led Zeppelin, Cream, Jimi Hendrix, and other acts of the era, and his songwriting and production style are clearly an homage to the times when serious stereo mixes were all the rage (just listen to the wild panning during “So Alone” and “These Days”). “Sweet Lil Thing” plays with the slow blues, while the bass and lead guitar syncopations throughout the album are a wondrous thing to behold. The riffs guiding “Death of a Queen,” “Bridges,” “Gypsy Fast Woman," and most tracks on the album are birthed in the boogie and the blues, which eventually fell out of favor with rock fans as audiences splintered and followed either the heavy metal of the ‘70s or progressive rock. In 2014, it’s not a matter of progress but of nailing down the genre correctly. In that case, Radio Moscow are at the top of the class.

Named for the pre-Cold War precursor to the propaganda outlet Voice of Russia, Radio Moscow are a blues-rock trio from Ames, Iowa, with a similarly anachronistic retro feel. Where bands like the Black Keys (whose guitarist Dan Auerbach produced Radio Moscow's debut album) and the White Stripes play with a stripped-down, modern take on the old power trio sound, Radio Moscow hark back to the glory days of the power trio, when Cream, the Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Blue Cheer roamed the earth and the...
