Noughties #67: Radio Dept. "Lesser Matters" (Shelflife, 2003)

This album, from Sweden's Radio Dept. was released to much critical excitement six years ago. Tagged as the best thing since My BloodyValentine, they were one of the few bands that lived up to the hype. Their own brand of indie dream pop was not overly tarnished by retrogressive tweeness, but was brought up to date with a very diverse production, drum heavy, fuzzed mix and bristling with fine melodies.
