Late last year I came across the band Beat Radio, but I can't recall how I did that. But, no matter, I'm here to tell those of you who didn't catch them the first time around that the band has just made their debut album available as a free download. Just follow the Beat Radio link below, and bearing that link is the brief piece I wrote about Beat Radio last year.
New York based band, Beat Radio, are led by singer/songwriter, Brian Sendrowitz (guitar), along with Phil Jimenez (guitar and keyboards), Mike McCabe (bass) and Jim Mansfield (drums). The quartet fit into the 'indie' groove quite nicely. The vocals and harmonies have that well worn, slightly offbeat/off kilter veneer that feels organic, and in fact it's Sendrowitz vocals and lyrics which outshine anything else in the songs. The songs are, for the most part, framed in the raggedy guitar sounds of the early nineties, but the band is quite capable of walking or running as the song dictates, despite playing their first live gig a scant four months ago.
You will also find the latest live dates on the album download page. If you're in NYC, or the New Jersey area, you're in luck.
Here's the song that inspired my writing about Beat Radio in the first place...
