Radio Radio 

EJ Feel Zoo (Bonsound)


Linguists could get lost in the words of Radio Radio: Acadian French, Franglais and invention as befits rhythm. On the title cut, a hockey fan might swear he hears "Crosby" but it's "cross-breed," of a panda with an iguana, no less. Two fellows from Clare, NS and one from Moncton constitute the group's core. In Montreal, it's growing. Interplay of consonants, vowels, tone and beats can outweigh meaning if Radio Radio find a word enthralling, like "Boomerang" or "Psych," which are two of the best dance tracks you'll hear anytime soon. On another, "Tcheindre Together," they holler "shake tes hanches" (your hips). Get down, thy deux solitudes, pour unité!
