Ra Ra Riot -April 11th, 2011

This week’s artist of the week is Ra Ra Riot, an indie band out of Syracuse, New York. The band formed back in 2006, and has since released 2 full length albums. Their most recent release “The Orchard” was met with great reviews from critics and fans alike. With a sound that combines elements of guitar, keys and violin, Ra Ra Riot produces a relaxing and ambient sound. I would liken them to a bands like Vampire Weekend and Cloud Cult. Ra Ra Riot is currently on a US tour, making stops in Madison and Minneapolis, so check your calendars! And make sure to check in this week for some great tracks!
