i’m sooooooo tired, that i can’t properly decide on who i want to post about for music today. hmm… let’s shuffle around and see what comes up!!! (one minute… two minutes… three minutes… four minutes… google search… doughnut eating… coffee drinking… still google searching… YES!!!) alrighty, here’s an awesome band called, TV on the Radio.
tv on the radio is a unique indie rock band from brooklyn, new york. they formed back in 2001 and are currently on a year or so hiatus while members pursue other projects. The music they create, to me, is best described as, indie/post-punk/electronic/lo-fi/dream pop/shoegaze. it’s an all around awesome style, and not to forget, but they also incorporate a bit of jazz and soul as well.
i first heard of these guys while watching this show on mxtxvx called, Subterranean. the music video for their song, “staring at the sun” was shown and it made for a fuzzy memory, but one i couldn’t help remembering. i recall looking up the video on the internet and being drawn to it’s lo-fi power and ambiance. that was that, and i’ve been a fan ever since. oh, and i got the awesome opportunity to see them open at a Nine Inch Nails show, which was an experience in itself...now, for the tunes we have a good amount of things to post, but nowhere near as many as last time. first up is their hard to find, self released album, OK Calculator. (a play on the amazing, Radiohead album...) next we have their first ep and it's called, Young Liars. after that we move to their real, official debut, which is called, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes. next is their wonderful follow up titled, Return to Cookie Mountain, then finally, we end with their latest called, Dear Science. that's that then there though the thing thinks thoughts that they thrash thump them thingamabobs...
your mouth is open wide...
