Los Angeles, United States

The One AM Radio is the project of singer/composer Hrishikesh Hirway. Hrishikesh often has friends accompany him live and on recordings but, in general, he sings, plays most of the instruments, and produces all the beats. His music blends acoustic and electronic elements and has drawn comparisons to a diverse array of artists, from Nick Drake to Portishead to Sigur Ros.

The One AM Radio has released 3 full-lengths: This Too Will Pass (2007), A Name Writ In Water (2004), and The Hum of the Electric Air! (2002); a split 7” with Ted Leo, and a 7” on Troubleman Unlimited, as part of their Solo Singles Series (along with The Album Leaf, Bob Nanna, Tim Kinsella, Tara Jane O’Neil) and another split 7” with Jeromes Dream on Alone Records. The One AM Radio has remixed and been remixed by a number of other artists. Daedelus enlisted Hrishikesh as a guest collaborator for a track on his album Exquisite Corpse.

The son of Indian immigrants, Hrishikesh was born and raised in Massachusetts. After graduating from Yale, and after many brief stints in several cities, Hrishikesh eventually relocated to Los Angeles, where he currently resides.

    I agree brian..Saw them with Abe Vigoda a few years back. The band had such great chemistry and cohesiveness. Not to mention hrishikesh is such a kind fellow.

    Jane- I agree. I miss the shoegaze sound as well. What You Gave Away is still the best thing he's ever done.

    The best thing he's ever done, in my heart at least, is The Hum Of The Electric Air! First album I heard and I still love every single note. :)

    I hate to say it, but I miss his solo stuff A LOT. Granted, Plans is a good album, and he's one of the most underrated artists/bands...I still miss his older sounds that weren't as dance-y, more shoegazey and focused on his voice and beats. I wish had seen him live when This Too Shall Pass was his latest.

    I really wonder how someone can say that this is the best he's ever done...But well, to each his own!

    I almost don't want to like this because it's so much different from This Too Will Pass (it had a big impact on my life). But this new one is just sooo good.
