TV on the Radio | Return to Cookie Mountain
The last two weeks have been the two busiest weeks of the year for new albums. Not sure why TV on the Radio pushed their US release date to this week, but the Return record is eclectic enough to stand out- it's got heavy drums and strange whistle/clap/fuzzbox noises from David Sitek, plus the requisite dual-layered vocal attack of Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone. Here's what McGuirk wrote in his Rhapsody review:
Blonde Redhead, Roxy Music, Outkast and god knows what else are on the list of influences you'll find on this second record from these indie rock subversives. Along with Arcade Fire and Animal Collective, TV On the Radio are recording highly avant-garde pop music that threatens to make indie rock worth listening to again. And they're garnering attention from such big shots as David Bowie, who contributes backing vocals on "Province," and Trent Reznor, who took them on tour with Nine Inch Nails. - MMcG
