Radio Moscow rocks your face off with ‘Little Eyes’ mp3
Oh, Friday: so perfect for dirty, caveman garage-rock thrashing. In other words, perfect for Radio Moscow.
The California trio returns Oct. 11 with its third album for Alive, “The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz,” and to allow you time to come to terms with that reality, the band is giving away a free song, “Little Eyes.” It’s a grime-caked tune full of guitar squalls and howling vocals, anchored to bedrock with rumbling rhythm that clanks and crashes like some infernal machine. Just try not to dude-nod along with this greasy jam — we dare you.
We know we haven’t answered the question that’s obviously on your mind: Who (or what) is Leslie Magnafuzz? Frankly, we don’t have a clue, but we figure listening to “Little Eyes” a few dozen more times might help us figure it out.

Radio Moscow: “Little Eyes”
Album: The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz
Intense, ’70s style psychedelic rock stemming from the cornfields of Iowa under the guise of a shrouded Soviet era transmission. Wolfmother fans especially should dig the first offering from Radio Moscow’s third studio production.
Sounds like: The perfect musical accompaniment to recreational-type activities in a wood panelled, shag carpeted suburban basement.

Craving something raucous and loud
These psychedelic blues rockers continually put out underrated records that are awe-inspiring and thunderous. Their third studio album The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz (what a ridiculously fantastic title) is out October 11 on Alive Records.

First Listen: Radio Moscow “Little Eyes”
These guys have come far from their 2007 Dan Auerbach-produced debut, when it was basically singer/guitarist Parker Griggs running the whole show.
Now a full-fledged power trio, “Little Eyes” proves conclusively that they’ve attained the honour of being lauded as the spawn of Cream and Blue Cheer.
Retrogressive? Possibly, but there’s plenty of honest frustration in these riffs.

New Music | Radio Moscow – Little Eyes
I don’t normally post this kind of brash, in your face type of music but when it comes to Radio Moscow, I’m a fan. This heavy trio breathes the essence of drugged out hard thumping rock and roll music. If the initial screech of Parker Griggs’ guitar doesn’t tell you that in the first 10 seconds, you aren’t listening. Radio Moscow is prepping their third release titled The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz. A title so befitting of their soundscape. Its fuzzy, screeching, 60’s hard rock and roll. Griggs’ musicianship should be heralded in this fashion, he puts together some of the most ridiculous acid laced guitar soloing. He’s remarkable. These guys set the bar for retro psych hard rock; and its really exciting to get to hear more from them.
The Great Escape of Leslie Magnafuzz will be released October 11th through Alive Records.
If you haven’t heard of them, I would recommend grabbing their last release Brain Cycles.

Radio Moscow, Max Pain & The Groovies, The Flying Eyes
Radio Moscow is a three-piece psychedelic rock band from Story City, Iowa. Guitar prodigy Parker Griggs formed the band in 2003, while he was a teenager. He gave a demo to Dan Auerbach from the Black Keys at a show, which impressed him enough to want to produce their studio debut. The band is praised by critics and fans for their explosive live performances.
