Ra Ra Riot’s Beta Love – An 80’s Style Pop Dream

Ra Ra Riot has finally released their most anticipated album yet. It’s the bands first release minus cellist Alexandra Lawn and the change is visible in almost every song on the album. The first time I listened to their first single Beta Love I could tell the band took a turn down the road of […]
