Radar Brothers - The Fallen Leaf Pages - CD Album (2006)
Original UK Release Date: 27th February, 2006
With The Fallen Leaf Pages, the Radar Bros. go back to nature with an album spilling over with references to butterflies, ants, beetles, waterfalls, fish, rosebushes, orchards, blood and death. If blood and death seem slightly incongruous, they shouldn't as the Radar Bros.' nature is the same nature as that of Ted Hughes - red in tooth and claw. The butterfly dies in Jim's hand, the rosebush is in the trash, the ant is floating in milk, kin get devoured - you get the idea...
The slo-mo shimmer of Faces Of The Damned gets things started before the album glides and lopes through rhodes-dappled gems like Government Land, the skewed, queasy wonder of Dark Road Window and the laid-back, meditative splendour of Is That Blood? This album is not for those who get their musical jollies through thundering speed and noise alone, but we know you lot are far more cultured than that and as a result we can only point you in the right direction and encourage you to make this album part of your collection. There are times for all kinds of music and this album offers you up tunes like sparks from a campfire.
