song share: radiation city – fly me to the moon (astrud gilberto cover)

spring comes to baltimore

Radiation City’s dreamy retro girl group fuzz garage pop debut, The Hands That Take You, really flew under the radar when it came out in 2011, and that’s a shame, because it’s a fantastic soundscape of harmony and guitar feedback and thick Phil Spektor shivers. Everybody’s getting ready for SXSW (no, I’m not going; I’m going to the beach instead, and the beach is better than SXSW, true story) and trying to stand out, and Radiation City managed it for me: this cover of a classic is lush and fuzzy and grabs both the center of Gilberto’s original song and the uniqueness that makes Radiation City a band to watch. Stream or download it below, and West Coasters, check out their tour dates as they head to Austin.
