Review: Arab on Radar

Arab on Radar
“The Stolen Singles”

As in the final throes of so many great groups, AOR has uttered that phrases that says so much and so little: “irreconcilable differences.” As a final chapter in their discography, “The Stolen Singles” pulls together early 7″ and demo recordings from the across the band’s seven-year life. Very ambitiously, the group sought to change the face of music. Though they did not do this, they did end up with a passionate indie art-rock group with an insistent, emergent sound of high-pitched rhythm guitar, grumbling bass and precise drumming set on andante automatic.
