The acclaimed debut album from Australian down tempo instrumental band All India Radio. Spun by the late great John Peel who playlisted it on his show, the album also charted in the Belgium, Dutch and Polish Indie charts. The Inevitable was followed by 002 and their ARIA nominated self titled third album, the music from which featured in the US TV series One Tree Hill and many ABC TV & Foxtel TV programs. The band are currently working on their fourth studio album.

"All India Radio triumph with The Inevitable. It is old school ambient music...reminds us of the KLF's brilliant ambient effort "Chill Out", The Inevitable is a truly imaginative piece of work. Well worth the trip" - Beat Magazine

"Soulfully composed" - Rolling Stone

" It's the kind of music that comes to you in dreams and to hear it actualised is really quite spooky "
- Inpress Magazine

"All India Radio is an Australian duo. They have just produced a very beautiful album of ambient music, an album which could have been imagined by the German pioneers of ambient music. It sounds like the album Tangerine Dream failed to produce right from the start by playing sub-Pink Floyd style, before they later found their right voice. These two Australians, obviously influenced by Asia and the Indian ocean more than we are in Europe, have avoided all the typical traps of so called "immobile music". They do not just produce a showcase of beautiful sounds. Here one is submerged by the notes coming out of the drum machine. Noises pour out in a delirious dreamlike form, the way it feels when one is slightly feverish and everything sounds rushed and mangled".
- Blah Blah News, France

"Some albums come out of nowhere and escape all attempt at classification.The name and the cover suggest a new anglo-Pakistani bangra beat-style production, while in fact it is a rather arty project imported from Australia. AIR is made of Aidan Halloran and Martin Kennedy, former members of indie band Pray TV. The sound - definitely ambient- is lo-fi and low key: guitar, drum machine, sound sampled in India, plateaux and many space effects. Somewhere between languid opium moods and desolate landscapes, high art and Paris Texas."
- Open Mag, France

John Peel BBC playlist favourite 1999.

CD Baby

This is the type of atmospheric bliss that leaves you with impressions, nothing really definitive or concrete, but these faint memories, homesickness, reminiscent smells you can't place, some kind of whispering of a history like a ghost town revealed after the draining of a lake. Like a pulsating blob, pricked by old west twangy guitar, shadowed by snippets of street sounds, peppered with attitude and pieced together in a seat-of-the-pants, almost random process where shards of sound are stuck together with glue, almost like a scrap metal sculpture on a foundation of billowing nostalgia. You might describe it as Dj Shadow goes out west, haunted by the Twin Peaks soundtrack or country electronica or cowboy dreams, the old west on one helluva noir-ish chill pill- but whatever it inspires in you, All India Radio is a gem.

The Inevitable is a truly imaginative piece of work.
A glorious treat for the ears, this debut from the ex-Pray TV partnership of Martin Kennedy and Aidan Halloran is constructed from samples, programs and wobbling guitar lines and based on a collection of street soundscapes recorded in India by Halloran. It is when these street samplings are at their most interesting that the music is at it's mysterious, exotic best, for they infuse the tracks with a genuine air of adventure. In fact the rest of the components of the fourteen tracks of The Inevitable aren't particularly novel, but the fact that the airy keyboard chords and flowing beats evolve exactly as you expect them to makes them all the more irresistable. And there's plenty going on below the enchanting surface aesthetics for those after a bit more substance. It's the kind of music that comes to you in dreams and to hear it actualised is really quite spooky.
