Still Staring At The Sun
Get over it, TV on the Radio are awesome. Without question, I hold these guys as one of the most innovative and captivating rock bands in operation today. Sure, everyone thinks that 2006's, Return to Cookie Mountain, was the cat's pyjamas and how can you beat powerhouse tracks such as "Wolf Like Me" and collaborations with Bowie. But newly released Dear Science is just as good - if not better.
The truth is that TV on the Radio have been making incredible music for the majority of my credible music listening years. Their sound is accessible in some aspects and totally abstract in others, sometimes I can understand the lyrics, sometimes I can't. Regardless, they make exciting music and it keeps me interested longer than a week. And I have ADD bad.
From Dear Science (2008):
TV on the Radio - Halfway Home
TV on the Radio - Crying
TV on the Radio - Family Tree
*The new disc in it's entirety is spinning over on the band's myspace.
What started it all for me, from Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes (2004):
TV on the Radio - Staring at the Sun
