HoZac's been priming the release of Radar Eyes' debut for a while now, with one excellent single from their Hookup Klub surfacing in 2010 and another standalone for "Miracle Eyes" hitting the shelves last year. Now the band have surpassed any expectations that those singles might have unlocked with their self-titled debut, a storming statement of post-Creation melodic thunder and outsized guitar crush. A bit of a departure from some of the other HoZac stable, the Chicago foursome divine thick clouds of sonic haze topped with more than enough pop sense and a warming glow of harmonious vocals that make each listen to the album unearth a new luster. We've long championed bands that seem to understand albums as a medium rather than a delivery service and Radar Eyes have crafted an album with a sense of purpose and flow. It’s a hard one to shake and a new constant for our morning commute, a helluva lot better than coffee for shaking the dust out of the day.
