TV on the Radio

Recommended Posts

Just got the new tv on the radio album and it's pretty damn fine. Fucked up loops, saxamaphones, guitars and Curtis Mayfield style vocals. It's all there and it's all gravy. Plus they are from Austin, Texas and are friends of ....Trail of Dead which makes them good guys in my eyes. And for anyone put off by my description it isn't jazz but is ideal bong music.

i found that album to be a bit hit and miss, some ace tracks(staring at the sun for instance) and some tracks that just didn't do it for me(like some of the prolongued barbershop meanderings), really like the sound of it though. the guitars are really threatening the way they've mixed at the back, it's like their stalking the album or something.

I have to agree that the barbershop parts of the album don't do it for me but what you said about the guitars is spot on. I also like the lyrics which are a lot like At the Drive-In and Mars Volta, they make fuck all sense alot of the time but just fit with each track.
