Pallers & The Radio Dept

Labrador once again shows off their impeccable taste with their new signing, Pallers. Their first single, “Humdrum,” is available as a free download, and it’s a mighty fine track, full of silky-smooth synth arpeggios, wistful vocals, and spectral post-punk guitars reminiscent of Seventeen Seconds-era Cure. The single will be released on 12/3 along with a couple of remixes and a b-side entitled “Slow Down Quickly.”

And in other Labrador-related news, the new Radio Dept. CD — Clinging To a Scheme — is due out soon. Until then, you can always check out the great first single, “Freddie and the Trojan Horse.”
