The second full length from Radiation City, Animals in the Median, features songs recorded over the span of a year in both rural Washington and urban Portland. You can hear focused songwriting, lush arrangements, and gorgeous harmonies. You can hear the celebration and lament of a sea change year which saw the passing of matriarchs, the betrayals and betrothals of loved ones, the baring and bruising of hopeful hearts in an increasingly dangerous world. Moreover, you can hear a band edified, coming into their own in rich and simple gesture.

The inspiration for Radiation City’s newest output stems from an old piano. The piano has lived in drummer Randy Bemrose's basement for eons. It's old, cumbersome, and on it's last legs. The band used sounds from the piano throughout the recording of this new EP... not just the keys though, the clicks and clacks from the body, the slamming of the lid, and virtually every other sound you can imagine making on the piano. After they were finished, the piano was beat up, out of tune, and falling apart. Having used the old piano of all it's worth, and as a celebration of an intense year, Radiation City engaged in the ceremonial destruction of the old piano documented on the first single’s video, “Find it of Use."
Cool Nightmare will be released initially in digital form on TLE's website as well as on iTunes and your other favorite digital music stores. The vinyl will become available mid-april. The band has hand-assembled EXTREMELY limited edition custom USB keys that will come attached to piano keys from the original piano. These will only become available at the band's shows as they make their way to SXSW this spring (dates below). Later this spring we will be releasing this magestic 7-song mini-album on 10-inch vinyl which is now available for pre-order here. All pre-orders come with an instant download of the whole EP. Nice.

The Hands That Take You first saw the light of day in February 2011 when the band released the recordings on Apes Tapes, their cassette tape-only label. Owning and operating a record label put the duo in a position of musical saturation. After participating in multiple bands and side-projects, the two sat down to do it right. Radiation City is the product of intention -- the cream of their musical crop. To them, it's something special or, as Spies puts it, "almost like it's a lady you want to treat real nice." They’ve now teamed up with Tender Loving Empire (Typhoon, Loch Lomond) to release the album nationally.
