The Rich Girls Are Weeping

18 August 2006

Je prepare pour Marie Antoinette. Meet The Radio Dept. -- they're big in Sweden, and Sofia Coppola liked 'em enough to put three (yes three) of their songs on the Marie Antoinette soundtrack. The stylish video below is for "The Worst Taste In Music." One classy remix and one b-side, full of gorgeous, swirly New Wave-iness, follow.

interesting video, they empty out their digital camera on that one. i got their new album 'pet grief' off emusic -- its quite good, very much a similar melancholy mood throughout.

their first album, Lesser Matters, is SO much better than Pet Grief it blows my mind. Though I re-listened to Pet Grief again today after several months lay off and it's not as disappointing as I initially thought.

But Lesser Matters is still worlds better.

lesser matters is better than pet grief, but the best thing is the pulling our weight ep (climb the wired fences is especially brilliant).
