Radio Galaxy: Lost In Space, But Down To Earth

Each Wednesday, Rocks Off arbitrarily appoints one lucky local performer or group "Artist of the Week," bestowing upon them all the fame and grandeur such a lofty title implies. Know a band or artist that isn't awful? Email their particulars to sheaserrano@gmail.com.

This past weekend, we happened across a performance by Radio Galaxy, an ethereal neo-soul group fronted by a woman deft enough to make it seem like calling herself Spacebunny Jefferson wasn't an entirely ridiculous idea.

The group swayed and glided and floated through the cosmos, singing songs with names like "Lost In Space" and "Isn't Space Interesting." (Totally made that second one up, BTW.) They were, for certain, dynamic and interesting and, ironically enough, earthly.

So we reached out to them to talk about wizards (duh), H.I.S.D. and why they've taken so long to release their first album. Try to keep up. It gets a bit weird at times.
