Risks taken late at night and urges set their watch, out where neons fizz by the darkness. Total, fleeting pleasure zone – ecstatic eyes swivel back into your head as you bounce from machine to cigarette to drink to machine and back again. Choking up as a rockabilly widower sings 'Blue Bayou' at a karaoke pub on the front and you miss the last train home. You squint into your phone in the dark, wishing for a call from a childhood friend who went missing on a night of total, fleeting pleasure a long time ago. Richard Spencer, who went missing by the sea – please come home, your friends still miss you.
The Radio Dept. has been one of the most influential bands of my life. With The Absence of Birds, The Radio Dept. has succeeded once again in creating a cinematic headspace--or movie moment--that I can tap into during my times of reverie. Nikki Celis
