Tiny Magnetic Pets – Radio On

Radio On, which features ex Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flür, originally appeared on last year’s Deluxe/Debris album and now has been released featuring a number of remixes to support the Dublin based band’s continued touring in support of OMD.

The original version is very poppy and whilst their are some nice bits it’s not a keeper for me. However it’s on the remixes where things get interesting with all the remixers stripping out the radio friendly vocals. Happy Robots stalwart Alice Hubble produces a mellotron based remix that blissfully wanders whilst London based droners The Leaf Library produce a contemplative response to the original track. However it’s the dancefloor oriented mix by Outernationale that ticks my buttons with it’s mechanical approach and automated vocal samples.

Radio On is out now on CD from Happy Robots Records. Or you can get it digitally from the label’s bandcamp page.
