Radiator Hospital, Brothers, Places to Hide, Mouth

Philly outfit Radiator Hospital is out on tour in support of the excellent new Torch Songs LP, a 15-track collection of catchy power-punk à la The Thermals and folky, emotive acoustic jams. The record, out now on Salinas, includes contributions from Swearin’s Katie and Allison Crutchfield, as well as members of Ohio alt-rockers All Dogs. Radiator Hospital frontman Sam Cook-Parrott, the group’s sole constant member, is gifted with a strong pop sensibility and boasts an affinity for the gritty, melodic, Midwestern pop-punk of the late ’80s and early ’90s. Meanwhile, Atlanta indie rockers Places to Hide remain one of that city’s must-see up-and-coming acts, all crunchy loud-soft dynamism and steadfast slack-rock attitude.
