Strange Week in Music  
on the Strangeways Radio Blog

When The Sun Hits is now contributing to a weekly blog feature on the Strangeways Radio blog called Strange Week in Music. The full article can be found on the Strangeways blog; WTSH cross posts it only partially, with a link to the full article provided. Strange Week in Music gives each Strangeways DJ an opportunity to highlight one track that is related to his/her show that week; the article will include information, links, images, a video/stream of the tracks and where they can be purchased. You can think of it as Strangeways' Week at a Glance.

If you are new to Strangeways Radio, or are curious about other station shows aside from WTSH, this weekly feature on the Strangeways blog will be the perfect introduction. Below is WTSH's latest contribution.

The Prids
Artist: The Prids
Album: …Until the World is Beautiful
Song: All That You Want
RIYL: New Order/Joy Division, The JAMC, Unrest, The Smiths
Where to Buy: Bandcamp

“All That You Want” was taken from the Prids’ sophomore LP, …Until the World is Beautiful. To date, they have released a trio of LPs and a number of EPs. Their sound is melancholy, but with attitude – the perfect formula for great post punk. Pigeonholing them as merely post punk would be a crime, however; the Prids have many layers. Soaring melodies and the dual boy / girl vocals are the band’s foundation, along with flawless guitar hooks, honest and often intricately written lyrics, and a bone rattling rhythm section all combine to create the Prids’ signature sound, and that sound is something very special indeed.
