“Brain Cycles,” the band’s sophomore recording displays the kind of heavy psychedelic, blues jams their parents or possibly their parents’ parents would have smoked grass and jammed out to in the late 60s or early 70s. At a mere twenty-three-years old, guitarist/vocalist Parker Griggs is the oldest member of the band, so this guy’s only connection to the early years of heavy blues jam would be through recordings. However, Radio Moscow does not sound like a Johnny-come-lately to this scene. Radio Moscow is primarily the creation of Parker Griggs. Griggs handles guitar, vocals, drums and percussion, and does it with exceptional skill. Zach Anderson provides groovin’ bass lines. Each track on “Brain Cycles” features mellow vocals, heavy-yet-bluesy riffs, jazzy drum fills and hazy psychedelics.

If you love classic guitar parts and blues-injected, Trans Am-driving rock, Radio Moscow is right up your road. In fact, you may fall in love with its fist-puming brand of rock. There is little subtle in anything the album attempts and I would assume that this is exactly what Radio Moscow wants: your ears to bleed, your mind to be warped, and your mom to yell “Turn that down!”
