The Hands That Take You first saw the light of day in February 2011 when the band released the recordings on Apes Tapes, their cassette tape-only label. Owning and operating a record label put the duo in a position of musical saturation. After participating in multiple bands and side-projects, the two sat down to do it right. Radiation City is the product of intention -- the cream of their musical crop. To them, it's something special or, as Spies puts it, "almost like it's a lady you want to treat real nice." They’ve now teamed up with Tender Loving Empire (Typhoon, Loch Lomond) to release the album nationally.
