Psych rockers Radio Moscow to play DNA Lounge

Psych trio Radio Moscow has just announced the release of their fourth studio album, Magical Dirt this May via Naturalsound Records. Coming a long way since their 2007 Dan Auerbach-produced self-titled debut, Radio Moscow's most recent release, 2011's The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz (Alive Records) blares fuzzy blue psychedelia that doesn't feel derivative. Grungy blues bands seem to be everywhere these days—so it takes an exceptional set of skills and plucky versatility to warrant attention. The psychedelic kick gives Radio Moscow's wild ubiquity an edge—and it demands a listen. Get tickets in advance below to save yourself a little money, and also check out a live cut [...]

Radio Moscow shuffles lineup again, releasing 7" on Volcom (stream "Rancho Tehama Airport" & "Sweet Little Thing")

Review & Photos: Radio Moscow at Cafe Du Nord, 8/5/12

Wrapping up their third lengthy tour of 2012, Radio Moscow rolled into San Francisco's Cafe Du Nord on Sunday night, amped after a very successful run of shows across the States and southern Canada fronted by Memphis proto-punk power trio The Dirty Streets. As they did when they played Slim's with Graveyard back in January, the band had legendary liquid lights guru Lance Gordon (of Mad Alchemy) in tow, providing an extra shot of psychedelia reminiscent of the 1960s acid rock glory days. Hometown trio the Coo Coo Birds started off the evening with an energetic, albeit hectic and somewhat [...]

Radio Moscow wrapping up summer tour at Cafe Du Nord this Sunday 8/5/12

NorCal-via-Iowa psychedelic blues rock outfit Radio Moscow is closing out its summer tour with a gig this Sunday night at San Francisco's Cafe Du Nord. Following a January onstage meltdown in Iowa that left singer, guitarist, and creative force Parker Griggs without a band on the eve of his first tour of the year, he recruited bassist Billy Ellsworth (Red Octopus) and drummer Lonnie Blanton (Red Dog Revival) to fill out the lineup, and the reformed throwback power trio has since been on the road seemingly nonstop. Griggs and company's summer run kicked off up in Tahoe at the end [...]
