WIRED magazine says about The Silent Surf: "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." http://www.wired.com/underwire/2011/01/all-india-radio
All India Radio return with their eighth studio album The Silent Surf. Shunning excessive electronic trickery, and with the mantra “sometimes less is more” planted firmly in mind, writer-producer Martin Kennedy embraced a lofi aesthetic and sparse instrumentation, only using a bare minimum studio ‘fairy dust.’ The resulting album is like the soundtrack to a beautiful and strange film - scratchy atmospheres, dreamy beats, tremolo guitars and gorgeous melodies, evoking images of cosmonauts, lost 1970s surf movies and lone gunmen straight out of an Ennio Morricone dream.
The album features a cameo by The Church’s Steve Kilbey (Under The Milky Way) on The Bomb. Martin Kennedy and Steve Kilbey released an album together in 2009 and are about to release a second one in 2011 (on which All India Radio is the backing band).
The album also features the voice of Professor Don Gurnett, famous for his ‘space sounds’ recorded for NASA (used to amazing effect by the Kronos Quartet on their Sun Ring recordings) over the last forty years.
