Friendly strangers on the path
Is there something i came here to do?
Wandering here, wandering there
I just wanna fit with you
Before the chaos hits the door
The sun was on my face
Can i hear you in the storm?
Is anybody there?

Iiiiiiiiiii.... (spinning into place)
Iiiiiiiiiii.... (spinning in outer space)


Now look up, look up again
Can you see the lights grow dim?
I hope you'll find i'm still the same
as a boy often in the rain
Before the dice hit the floor
And they have shown their hands
Its time to take another breath
And sink beneath the sand


Iiiiiiiiiiiii... (spinning into place)
Iiiiiiiiiiiii... (spinning in outer space)

Ill be with you
we'll be together
On our return
Returning from wherever

Ill be with you
We'll be together
On our return
Returning from wherever

Iiiiiiiiiiiii... (spinning into place)
Spinning in outer space
Ill be with you
We'll be together

"Vaccine" - very appropriate for this uplifting week in Europe.
I like the way this builds.  Very dramatic.

Immediately when seeing this bands album cover I think of Abby Road. Wonder why!!!

sweet Chulito

 

This song fills me with light, and I've finally had to bump it to a 10! Always hits the spot.
This pick to follow up Symphony No. 5 in C minor was kinda masterful. Only RP could pull this kinda thing out of the hat.

First 2 albums are far better in my opinion, the 2nd - Last Days of Gravity - is one of the finest electronic albums created. I didn't like the direction they took with this one at all, and like many of their fans I was critical that they had moved too far from their electronic roots. YB seemed to acknowledge that fact by releasing the electronic version of Vaccine to popular demand. The electronic version is far, far superior to the rock-lite original.

There are some great tracks on here, but if you really want to hear the best of them then get Last Days of  Gravity and a Flock of Bleeps.
 

Not to mention that the album cover for Last Days of Gravity is on my top 10 list of cutting edge covers.
I dig the melding of electronica and guitar. I regularly play Younger Brother on when I'm at home.
Love, love, love this sing! Thanks, Bill, for introducing me to Younger Brother.
Gracias Bill por el slideshow, me ha gustado mucho, excelentes fotografías! 
I find the cover mesmerizing as the American Redbuds petals are covering the ground like snow in central Illinois.

Real talk, not to put down anything by these guys
Dear RP crew.  Like an artist, I would like to work anything on graphic design  if you ever need some. For free ofc. That would be my dearest support. Love you both. <3

Fond of both Yes and PF but have no idea how listeners hear those bands in this song.

This is 'post-prog' in some respects but otherwise it is hard to fathom the connection. 

Great CD BTW.  
A spinning away...... trying to find Jerry..... spin spin fly away.
WONDERFUL!
THANK YOU, radio paradise! :)
I love it.  They have several other songs I really like too like Train and Shine.
Not digging the plinky plunky sound.  It would be OK if not for that.

These were on in London recently at the Shpongle Codex vi release @ Troxy, London, my sister went to the all nighter, as she is into them.
Line up was Shpongle (Simon Posford and Raja Ram), Hallucinogen, The Infinity Project, (Raja Ram), Younger Brother , Youth, Prometheus and  DJ Lucas.

Anyhow, I feel younger brother was much better when the singing was minimal. This foolio doesn't really have much going on in his vocals, not adding very much to the song.

Previous album was much better, same singer, more distorted vocals.

I love hearing this after Dark Side Us & Them > Eclipse... In some ways, it's kinda like the spacier sound Pink Floyd brought out and laid down on Wish You Were Here... come to think of it, the subtle but awesome bass is in the style of Roger Waters — and a whole lot of it sure reminds me of Pyramid-era Alan Parsons (and he was the sound engineer on Dark Side, wasn't he?)... Anyway, SUPERB
yanyan sas pla t wole alum
Did a web search for this band - looking for tour info. Found this:

"On 16 August 2014 Benji Vaughn stated on Younger Brothers' Facebook page that he would "be going quiet for a while" and that "it's time to disappear for a few years" 

Oh well. Another band bites the dust....

If you like Younger Brother(I love them) check  Shpongle.
I really like this song.

If you were to ask Simon, he'd probably suggest that your struggles may have more to do with an insufficient level of psychedelics in your system than with any shortcomings in your gear.

Wow.

too polished
Once more coming to rate the song only to realise that it's already done :) I just don't understand how I keep forgetting I've already heard them and I know their name lol
Some real depth to the composition. So your music comes out of a computer, I suppose if you pour in your heart and soul into it and really work the machine, it's like an instrument. This occurred to me when we heard how well Younger Brother's music plays with their spacey vocal styling. All good!

When they inevitably do a full-length feature (or at least a new sit-com) of "Welcome Back, Kotter", that phrase could replace "Up your nose with a rubber hose!"
Love the vibe this song gives.
It was only when I looked in to the band and it's members history that I realised the wealth of experience these 3 have.   It shows.   the way this track builds and holds you there is fantastic.     9 -> 9.4

Discovered "弟弟" thanx to RP and decided to rate them among the scarce post-2000 electro material I find not only interesting, but seriously good-sounding and well-produced. Not Godlike yet though, they'll have to confirm.
Yes.  Yes, there is.

My favourite part of calle01's psychosis; no matter how highly rated a song may be, he believes that his 1 is going to dictate whether Bill plays it.

He does seem somewhat masochistic.
Loved it, gonna buy the MP3 on Amazon and add to the running workout music.

So you like the format but hate most of the songs and you think giving them a "1" is going to make things better for you. And you feel happy to use PSD even though it's likely going to take you to another song you hate.

Simply melody with many layers of sound. Vocals are just right. Lyrics: still figuring them out. Great combination! My mind is traveling.

I do not have one complaint about this music, none - I listen to it and I love it. I have nothing but gushing admiration for their catchy sounds. To the point (but not beyond) of sounding sarcastic, I listen to this all day long when I'm not listening to Radio Paradise. At the core, my auditory system is embedded with an identically matched frequency spectrum
hmm ... caught my attention ...
Very good

Brilliant!

Wonderful album.


Delicious bassline, great texturing.
I love this tune.
Awesome! First I've heard of this artist/group and I am awed by this cut.

The Future Sound Of London comment above is spot on for me. Used to work in a particular design studio with 'cool funky designery' types and got brainwashed by FSOL and the ilk. Must admit got some good music education from them guys.

I now run a different studio and have RP playing through a Sonos system so now i can do the educating.
