The One AM Radio

The last four years have been a barren affair for those of us enamored with the One AM Radio. The musical solo vessel captained by Hrishikesh Hirway has been dormant these past few years, a deafening silence that implied the One AM Radio was no more. Thankfully that was not the case, as Hirway has resurfaced with new album and new backing band in tow. The texturally magnificent Heaven Is Attached By a Slender Thread finds Hirway in a far better place than 2007's woefully downtrodden (yet still wonderful, in a slit-your-wrist sort of way) This Too Will Pass. As always, Hirway's murmured vocals are gently perched atop a subtle foundation of chirping electronic beats and muted live-band instrumentation (recorded in his apartment, naturally), creating a lovely structure of intimate pop numbers that sound like a more grown up Postal Service. We now have a soundtrack for the next four years. EZRA ACE CARAEFF
