Radon

Okay, back to school: Hüsker Dü is to Radon as Radon is to Gainesville. Well, okay, probably not so cut and dried, but the influences from both are pretty strong on the other. From what I understand, this is classic Gainesville. Now I wasn’t around to see Radon back in the day, but you don’t have to go too far to hear their sonic imprint on other bands from the area. Crazily melodic guitars scrapping together indie rock and punk roots with a healthy dollop of southern influence. Raw, honest, gritty songs that sound like they should be coming off well-worn vinyl grooves.

The recordings on here are pretty old but stand the test of time very well. Undeniably catchy songs that sound just as vital today.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
