Brain Cycles is Radio Moscow`s second album, a new psychedelic trip into the musical territory originally charted by artists such as Randy Holden, Groundhogs, Peter Green, and Flower Travellin` Band, just to to name a few.
Hailing from Ames, Iowa, an unlikely rock n`roll town if there was one, and formed in 2006 by guitar prodigy Parker Griggs (24 years old), Radio Moscow released their self-titled debut in 2007, with Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys handling the production. StonerRock.com called the album "an astonishingly good debut," Pop Matters hailed it as an "awesome record-fun and slutty and cool," and Modern Fix described their sound as "dirty-ass psych-powered blues rock ." After a full year on the road, Parker Griggs has been back in the studio to cut the long awaited follow-up.
On Brain Cycles, he once again plays all the instruments (guitar, drums, and percussion) and assumes vocal duties as well as production credits, while the bass guitar is in the hands of young Zach Anderson (19 years old). Conceived as an homage to the thrilling days of yesteryear, when vinyl was king and analog stereo ruled the world, Brain Cycles is best experienced at maximum volume while wearing headphones, if you want your brain to catch the waves! Radio Moscow will be back on the road all 2009.
Radio Moscow will be hitting the road with Dead Man this February. For a full list of dates, click here.
