Mystery Jets have been around for a few years making music that has sweeped Europe, but they are hoping that for their fourth album, recording in the United States will also help them dominate North America with their brand of pop rock. The new album is called Radlands, which will be released in Europe this Monday (April 30th). Americans will have to wait another five weeks when it is released on June 5th. The music may make people think of Split Enz, Crowded House, The Alarm, R.E.M., or Wilco, but regardless of who you think they sound like, you’ll find out that their music can and will be addicting. They’re catchy, they know the lure of a good hook, and they’ll know how to keep you within their realm for awhile.
You can listen to two different tracks from the album, including a music video, by choosing the options below.
The vinyl version of the album will be released as a double LP with a 32 page illustrated comic called Radlands – The Ballad of Emmerson Lonestar. Only 500 copies of the 2-record set (with comic) will be pressed.
