I know it seems like we practically run a Thrill Jockey blog, but few labels are putting out stuff that is anywhere near as inventive and consistent. Their newest release is the first album from Radian in four years. “Chimeric” is a dark, brooding, sometimes harsh and chaotic record. Normally you could put this band under the “experimental electronica” label, but since they’ve started to sequence live instruments, their sound is much harder to pin down. It is inventive, unpredictable, and extremely enjoyable to listen to. The LP is limited to 1,000 copies and costs only $13. Visit ThrillJockey.com.
