A free download of The Radio Dept.’s “The New Improved Hypocrisy” seems to be have been around for a while, but I just caught it today on Amazon.
It’s like the best of OMD and some of the good of New Order and a dash of Joy Division (which, let’s face it, usually comes with the good)… but modern. I don’t know what you call it, though Wikipedia calls it “dream pop” which seems as good as any … except for the fact that it’s Wikipedia and no one wants to actually agree with Wikipedia, do they?
Anyway, download it. It’s free, and what else do you have to do on a February Friday?
If you like it, visit this site. It seems to have more downloads from the band.
