About Beat Radio
Beat Radio’s first full length LP, The Great Big Sea, was released in 2006 and earned an 8/10 rating from Drowned in Sound. Safe Inside the Sound and Golden Age followed is 2009 and 2010, respectively. The latter saw the band featured on Insound’s staff blog as Band of the Week, and earned them an honorable mention in the L Magazine’s annual NYC Bands You Need to Hear feature.
In 2012, Beat Radio set out to produce what they referred to as an expansive, adventurous concept record that sonically and thematically falls between Bruce Springsteen’s Darkness on the Edge of Town and Robyn’s Body Talk. Hard Times, Go! fulfills this promise and is the band’s bravest and most personal record to date. The album was recorded in Sendrowitz’s home studio in Bellmore, NY, and will be released digitally and as a limited edition 150 gram red or clear 12” Vinyl on February 19th, 2013 on Awkward For Life Records.
