Learner Dancer | Radiation Chile (Video)
The rough-edged Indianapolis band, Learner Dancer, have a video out for their track, “Radiation Chile”, which features video footage from “The Cold Plot”, a documentary film that tries to condense Soviet era images, with the birth of the nuclear age, Cold War escalation, and massive weapons build up. Beyond the wild muddle of geopolitics, here’s a band that plays an unhinged kind of psychedelic guitar rock, that’s part Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, part punked-out garage band. It’s those jagged and rugged edges that makes this band appealing, from the cave-man drum thumps, and slung out vocals, to the violet-light guitar embellishments and pure sound overload. “Radiation Chile” is the band’s ripping, noisy, and exuberant showpiece on their 7-track self titled record. Listen to the band’s music at bandcamp or follow them at facebook, and tumblr. — David D. Robbins Jr.
