Climb aboard the Radiation City time machine! This Portland quintet makes my heart flutter. Blending genres with their modern electronic, indie-pop sound and doo-wop funkiness, they produce a classic '60s inspired feel with a fresh spin.

"Foreign Bodies" hooks you from the opening airy synths and reverb-laden vocals. The sweet, soulful groove begs you to snap your fingers and sway your hips. It's the perfect fun and summery jam.

Portland's reigning "Best New Band" is set to release their sophomore album, Animals In the Median, May 21st and just announced their upcoming US tour dates. If you like what you hear, be sure to check out their live performance.  And if you're in the Philadelphia area, maybe I'll see you at the show!
