Socially-active New Yorkers Radio 4 are always worth your time, wherever you may stumble across them.

Far from their mainstream-busting Gotham! days, the foursome upped the electronic elements, downed the spiky guitar riffs, nixed the overpowering basslines and intensified the social-commentary.

While the fun factor is no longer the same as the days when you sang AIDS anthem in unsuitably carefree style, the band are no less compelling in the present.

Concentrating mostly on new material, the band's next album - due shortly - looks to depart slightly from the overt electronica of Stealing of a Nation towards a slightly rockier path. It may also mark a recommended point of reinsertion for those who may have left the R4 camp in recent years.
