Joshua Radin's music has a way of arresting one's attention, which is probably why his songs have been used in more than 75 television programs and films over the last six years. But it's his full albums that offer the biggest payoff—they definitely live up to the promise of an initial taste.

Radin's third full-length album, The Rock and the Tide, showcases him at his most ambitious and playful, and proves he's just as adept at straight-up rock as he is at "whisper rock." Radin will perform at the Music Box Thursday night, and LAist spoke with him last weekend to get the scoop on the new tunes, his thoughts on writer's block and his favorite eateries in LA.
