Pet Grief - The Radio Dept.
The Radio Dept. is a band I found out about through the 'Marie Antoinette' soundtrack, and I was able to listen to more of their shoegaze (or is it "newgaze"?) sounds online thanks to Last.fm. 'Pet Grief' is a wonderful, moody little album that combines a little bit of new wave with shoegaze, indie rock and dream pop in a tidy package courtesy of Sweden's Labrador Records, and probably the most accessible release for those of us in the US market aside from ordering straight from Labrador. If you've heard the two songs off of the 'Marie Antoinette' soundtrack, this album shouldn't disappoint.
