Big Spaceship (2005)
Just when you think you have all the ‘All India Radio’ releases, you discover something new.
The band, formed by Martin Kennedy creates atmospheric chill/downbeat music. All India Radio’s music has featured in CSI: Miami, One Tree Hill, The Lying Game, Australia’s hit Bondi Rescue and the film The Rare Earth.
This album comes from 2005 and has a different feel to Martin’s other work. It’s a bit more up-beat and has a distinct 1980s feel to it. The songs have a more conventional structure of verse/chorus/verse. Most song have vocals (by Kennedy, Chloe Hall and Glenn Richards). The best part of the wonderful sounding drums and bass, this anchors the songs and has occasionally a swing beat that adds a slow-dance aspect. Also present in some songs is a saxophone that sounds a lot like it came from Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here”.
