Seven Layers of Self-Defense
Latvian Radio is currently taking their lyrically charged, high energy 'indie-noise-pop' on the road in support of their new release 'Seven Layers Of Self-Defense'. It will be released on the Swedish label Belpid Records. It picks up where their critically acclaimed 'Happiness Above A Hardwood Floor' left off. It explores even deeper into the psyche of prolific songwriter Patric Westoo and his sonically dense yet melodic backing band. Like Richard Yates 'Revolutionary Road' turned into a three minute pop song. Their 2006 release 'Happiness Above A Hardwood Floor' was well received by CMJ college radio station all throughout the United States. San Francisco based 'Bagel Radio' had them in the top five for four straight weeks and 'Saturday Left Her On The Floor' made their list of Top 50 Songs Of 2006 at number 32. Stations in Japan and Europe played the record as well. They also had a song nominated for best rock song at the 'Just Plain Folks' independent music awards held in Los Angeles.
