The self-titled UMO disc is really an amalgamation of hip-hop, Motown-era soul and psychedelic guitar-rock. “I got into Wu-Tang before I got into the Beatles,” Nielson says of his genre-fucking analog aesthetic. “I really think those bands have a lot in common.”

Radiation City’s handcrafted sound is harder to describe than its internal dynamics. At the core of the band’s first two releases—last year’s full-length, The Hands That Take You, and the Cool Nightmare EP released in March—is a collision of old and new. Drum machines mingle with bossa nova rhythms, and Phil Spector-style echo-chamber vocals fall over Pulp-esque guitar grooves. Always, especially in the voices of Rad City’s two female singers, there’s a healthy dose of soul.
