 For many dream pop bands, drum machines and samplers help ground a sound so ethereal, it runs the risk of floating away. For the Radio Dept., these tools are precisely what set them apart on their third album,  Clinging to a Scheme . With their mix of sunny guitar jangle and melancholic sentiment, the Swedish trio could easily be slotted as indie pop. But factor in their apparent fondness for Saint Etienne and darkwave, diet-Eurodance-meets-reggae beats, and jokes landed via spoken-word samples (à la the Avalanches), and the album rests at the more electronic end of the dream pop spectrum. The post-punk riffs that made them interchangeable with ’80s bands on the 2006  Marie Antoinette  soundtrack remain intact, as do the lo-fi charms of their 2003 breakthrough  Lesser Matters . But on  Clinging to a Scheme , the Radio Dept. apply their eclectic tricks easily to their moody, understated soundscapes. –Jillian Mapes
