Radiation City Gets Summer Dance Makeover for ‘Find It Of Use’  
Deemed Portland’s ‘Best New Band of 2012’  
“you could call their sound vintage, but the better word is timeless.”  – Refinery29

Portland, OR-based Radiation City has released a new remix of ‘Find It of Use,’ a single lifted from their Cool Nightmare EP, out now with Tender Loving Empire. Premiered on Prefix, the remix “is an electric, dance-inducing track that would be a good fit on any summer mixtape.”
The original track is reworked by fellow Portland native Palmas, a project that Apes Tapes (Lizzy and Cameron of Radiation City’s cassette tape-only label) is releasing in the next few months. Josh Fulfs (Palmas) is part of the Shwood sunglasses company – a Portland-based gone international wooden sunglass-maker. Shwood ventured into Forest Grove, OR to film Cameron, Lizzy and Matt tend the botanical garden they help maintain when not on tour. Watch the video at Shwood, as they discuss their personal investment in the garden with budding rhododendrons and 30-year old bonsai, their work-music-life balance, and more about the origin of Apes Tapes.

After making their SXSW debut this March, the dream-pop quintet was just deemed one of Portland’s ‘Best New Bands‘ for 2012 by Willamette Week. The band is currently working on the follow up full-length to their last year’s debut, The Hands That Take You.
