Eight months after the release of their latest album, “Der Endless Dream,” follows Radare’s “All Filler”, a 7″ with two songs created during the sessions of the album. While the album was conceived as an experimental blockbuster that worked its way through the trials and tribulations of adolescent yearnings, this latest single is more like a fragmentary short film that sheds light on two sides of a bipolar personality.
The sound of the songs with hypnotic western guitars, synthetic drones and soft brass sounds is this time a bit more hyped, feverish and paranoid. The mystery film that Radare used to set to music has now become a horror film.

equal parts twin peaks, UFO abduction music, and 80s dystopian soundtrack, I don't want it darker is exactly what it says it is.
A just-enough-ness of haunting, alienating and eerie pop melodies perfectly balanced with tasteful, estranging-ly familiar retro arrangements.
a strange message of hope in a vintage yet very real quarantine soundtrack musicfed
Nice scorched-earth dark jazz that in an odd way reminds me of a more minimal, woozier, "Hex.." era Earth mixed with a stripped down Bohren & der Club of Gore, with all of its aloof, sultry hums, heroin-lounge and Dale Cooper cool. brantly
Departure Songs is an absolutely amazing album that still chokes me up with every listen thanks to it's powerful sound. This album was definitely made with passion and it shows on every track. Michael Sullivan
