Album Notes
LATVIAN RADIO has crafted their own brand of lyrically charged and sonically intelligent indie-power pop for the better part of a decade. Jack Rabid of the Big Takeover referred to it as "smart, mellifluously melodic candy" and Amplifier Magazine labeled their songs "Music as both entertainment and art. Truly the best variety".
They have been a mainstay on college radio for years and their last record "Kill The Static" made some noise in the power pop community and ended up on many best album of the year lists in 2012.
"For Love & Spite" picks up where "Kill The Static" left off but is a bit more direct and abrasive with some elements of punk and soul.
The press has linked them to Elvis Costello & the Attractions, the Replacements, Big Star, Shins, Brendan Benson and early REM.
After releasing three solo albums prolific NY based singer/songwriter PATRIC WESTOO, teamed up with longtime Morgantown, WV friends Kim Monday(multi instrumentalist and Frozen Sound Studios director), Mark Poole(63 Eyes, Moon, Phantom 6) and Brian Porterfield(Cheap Truckers Speed) to form The B-SIDES in 2002. They released "Troubleshooting" in 2003.
Shortly after that they changed their name to Latvian Radio and added Adam Jones(Jonestown) on drums and Dilip Chandran(Born Again Hindus) on bass. They released "Happiness Above A Hardwood Floor", "Seven Layers Of Self Defense" and "Kill The Static" over the next few years. The extended Latvian Radio family also includes Patrick Derivaz(Tom Verlaine) on bass, Jason Victor(Steve Wynn, Dream Syndicate) on guitar and Alex Baker(Skull Practitioners) on drums.
