by Radio People
Released: Aug 2011
Label: Mexican Summer
With each new release, Sam Goldberg's Radio People project moves from abstract synth-drone to more of a synth-pop aesthetic, one that embraces traditional conceptions of melody, groove and even beauty. As a result, Hazel recalls Jean Michel Jarre more than it does Conrad Schnitzler. As a composer and musician, Goldberg's timing is impeccable; his architectonic runs -- spacey in a gentle way -- never unfold too quickly or slowly. The record is instrumental for the most part. However, its final track, "Patience," contains some wonderfully tranquil vocal patterns that feel inspired by Eno.
