Album Notes
Join our mailing list for freebies and new release & tour information http://allindiaradio.fanbridge.com

All India Radio's acclaimed self titled album is bursting with majestic slow-motion soundscapes and highly atmospheric tunes. The album was nominated for Best Album in the Australian Recording Industry Associations' 2003 awards (ARIA) and features a rare guest appearance from singer songwriter legend Ed Kuepper (The Saints) ("The man is a God. No other word suffices." - Melody Maker). The album also features a bonus 4 track DVD of atmospheric home made films clips and videos.

'Evening Star' was recently featured in the season finale to hit Warner brothers TV series One Tree Hill and the DVD box set release.

"will mainly appeal to fans of either Sigur Ros, Spiritualised, Low, Spacemen 3 or Sophia without the wailing.... - Uzine, Germany

"All India Radio's self titled third album is an object of rare porcelain beauty. ..a dreamier, less beat-orientated massive attack with distinctive shadings of ennio morricone and brian eno" - Magnet, USA

"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

"...One listen to the slow-motion majesty of second track "Tijuana Dream" will have folks the world over grasping for superlatives - just sheer beauty." - Luna Kafe, Norway

Album Of The Year 2003 on Poland's Radio Koszalin

Very relaxing
This is just amazing music. I do expressive dance to slow music and this works great for that. All the albums are great, but this one is my favorite.

Great stuff
Having spent most of my adult life in London being bombarded with good, bad and indifferent music I realise that the big difference in Australia is that most good bands don't get the recongintion they deserve because the music scene here is smaller and focuses largely on talentless mainstream shite. All India Radio wouldn't be top of the charts in the UK but they would be a high profile act recognised for the superb atmosphereic, hook ridden mood music they produce. This album relaxes and entices you into a mellow mood regardless of where you are or what mood you're in. Thankfully it does it without being a pile of new age hippy crap. As a newcomer to All India Radio I couldn't recommend them and this album highly enough.

Warm waves of synthesizer tones, sunny melodies, and a glowing aura
Three excellent musicians from Australia plus three guests have officially crafted one of the most elegant and simple instrumental rock albums I've ever heard. Warm waves of synthesizer tones, sunny melodies, and a glowing aura all around mix, mash, and breathe as if a natural part of the air and form what can only be described as a heavenly cloud of radiance that is simply not of the material world. Keyboards, drums, and relaxed guitar strumming all intertwine, switching emphasis here and there but never losing sight of an overall picture that must have taken shape in the mind of every musician involved: a beach, memories of home, or nighttime in a familiar and warm place. Every note and every second of sound effortlessly evokes feeling after feeling. All India Radio mix sound sculptures void of definite rhythms and certain melodies with more traditional song structures and they do it so well that each second comes as a surprise. On "Voodoo Instrumental," a whistling drone underscores the open and reflective sound of a piano chiming in wandering and circular movements until the reversed tones and guitars of "Moon Rise 1989" segue into the melancholy guitar playing of "Waukaringa." The movement of one song into the next is almost cinematic and is certainly epic in scope, but the content of each track is completely individual and unique. Featured with the CD is a DVD of various movies. Though not all of them are great, the video for "Tijuana Dream" is fantastic. It might seem a little simple at first, but the ending makes watching the whole thing worth it. I really can't say enough about this album and I hope to hear more from All India Radio. There's not one dull moment anywhere on the album and songs like "Evening Star" and "10:58" should not be missed. It's simple, almost child-like, and suffused with such an awesome mood of relaxation and inquisitiveness. This is their third album and based on its merits I can't wait to hear more. - Brainwashed.

The Brag Magazine

All India Radio's self-titled third album is a breathtaking triumph
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 records ever made in Australia. Drenched with the spirit of the land, it draws heavily on the legacy and feel of the classic Australian surf music soundtracks of the early '70's such as Sea Of Joy and Morning Of The Earth. The result is an overwhelmingly insouciant and satisfying original soundscape... All India Radio - please tune in and listen.
