Radiator Hospital – Please Thrill Me [Philadelphia, US]

Lo-fi / Indie / Pop

As soon as I heard the doo-wop infected opener of most recent album, the aptly titled Something Wild, I knew that this band was going to be something fun. The friendly voice of Sam Cook-Parrott, the catch pop/punk-ish hooks, and general good vibes of it all–this Philadelphia outfit is simple and fun music with an emotional heft to it that hits without knocking you to the ground. Quietly releasing 6 track from TOTAL REQUEST, a split with Chicago friend Kyle Kaos, the tracks themselves are anything but quiet. Lo-fi, fuzzy goodness abound, the set ends with a straightforward acoustic piece Please Thrill MeĀ about liking someone a lot. It’s cutesy in the most adorable way and doesn’t try to be anything other than an attempt to capture the excitement of a crush. A perfect addition to that mixtape for that special someone this upcoming Valentine’s Day. In the song, Sam exclaims over and over that he doesn’t want to slow down, and I can only hope that he never does, both in term of this project’s output and or feeling as strongly as this song makes me do.

Keep up with Sam on his WordPress or on Facebook, and maybe throw some bucks his way for TOTAL REQUEST (though it’s available for free!).
