Radio Radio

The One AM Radio
From: Los Angeles, California, United States

The One Am RadioThe One AM Radio is the musical project of Hrishikesh Hirway, a composer and songwriter from Los Angeles. If there is a more perfectly named band on the planet today then I've yet to find them. If you turned on your radio at one am then this is the sound that you'd want to hear leaking from the speakers. It's the sound of the dust cloud from an iPod stacked with the back catalogue of Jim Noir, ELO, Super Furry Animals and The Beta Band being dropped from the top of a very tall building.

They're not exactly a new sensation. Their second album, 'A Name Writ In Water', was named by Time Out New York as one of the top 10 albums of 2004. A set of remixed tracks from that album was put out as an ep in January 2005, entitled "On the Shore of the Wide World." The EP was the #1 download in iTunes' electronic genre for 3 weeks upon its release, and stayed in the top 10 for another 3 weeks after that. But I missed them first time round and am rapidly making up for all that lost time by immersing myself in their calming, soothing world.

While the world outside crashes and burns The One AM Radio are the perfect bolthole.
