Price: free
Radiation City took the local scene by storm with the release of last year's The Hands That Take You, first issued on the band's Apes Tapes cassette label and then given national re-release by Tender Loving Empire. That was a splendid debut, to be sure, but Rad City's new EP Cool Nightmare is even better, clearly showing that this is a band that knows how to make fantastically inventive music on a grand scale. Warbled musical themes wind their way in and out of each song, blending pop, Latin, exotica, soul, orchestral ornamentation, stunning harmony singing, and more—it's a sterling achievement from a band that's fearsomely capable of everything they've put their mind to. Cool Nightmare is unquestionably one of the year's best releases. NED LANNAMANN
