WIRED MAGAZINE says about All India Radio "Since the turn of the 21st century, All India Radio has mashed the ambient-hop signatures of DJ Shadow, Tortoise and Thievery Corporation with the instantly recognizable guitar soundtracking of Ennio Morricone and Angelo Badalamenti. The resulting narcotic musical textures are capable of floating listeners to galaxies far, far away." - Wired.com
They were nominated for Australian recording industry award (ARIA) and have worked with Steve Kilbey (who wrote the magical US top 20 hit 'Under The Milky Way' - rediscovered by the world in the hit movie 'Donnie Darko’), Graham Lee (The Triffids), Ed Kuepper (The Saints and now Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds guitarist) and David Bridie (Not Drowning Waving) among others.
"There is a richness of sound on “A Low High” that truly deserves a few spins before the magnitude kicks in. Yet even a cursory listen will move you and make you feel like today won’t be so bad after all. All India Radio know how to bottle euphoria and remix it into something deep but chill. This is a perfect record for a late summer drive, or for company on that low buzz of a drive home from the beach" 8/10 - Mike Wood (22 July, 2009) http://www.foxydigitalis.com
"The 2003 Australian Album Of The Year may well have been recorded by an act virtually nobody has heard of. Melbourne-based All India Radio's self-titled third album is a breathtaking triumph; one of the most exquisite, ethereal, instrumental records ever made in Australia" - Mike Gee, The Brag Magazine
