All India Radio touch down with their new instrumental album on planet Chillout. The perfect soundtrack for Space Age Bachelor Pads or Starships, it is a cosmic journey through hypnotic chilltronica with echoes of Morricone, Brian Eno, Pink Floyd & Mogwai
released 01 October 2012
"All India Radio have long been compared with Boards of Canada and Spiritualized, but the spacey qualities of songs like “Owlpacas in Flight” have more in common with Tortoise than Eno this time around. And just like their other releases, Red Shadow Landing has cyclical lines that will get lodged in your brain."
"there are an incredible number of moments of transcendence sprinkled throughout the 11 songs that make up the disc. This is music designed to take the listener anywhere they wish to go, and is a truly gorgeous record."
"Epic. Momentous. Breathtaking. Magnum opus. While every All India Radio release is quite good, even excellent, this one is the most fully realized musical journey."

"you will soon realize, just as I did, Red Shadow Landing is indeed the score to our outer space voyage. Red Shadow Landing is an extraordinary piece of work."
The line up includes long time band members Martin Kennedy (who has recorded two acclaimed albums with Steve Kilbey, writer of The Church’s ‘Under The Milky Way’) and bass player Mark Wendt along with new members Kaz Seiger on keys and Michael Evans-Barker (Papa Chango, Ballarat Wind Orchestra) on drums, vibes, and percussion.
Guests include renowned classical composer George Ellis (composer and conductor of The Church’s 30th Anniversary concert, Sydney Opera House, conductor Bruce Beresford’s film Mao’s Last Dancer, Augie March, NRL grand final) and pedal steel guitar legend Graham Lee (The Triffids).
