TV On The Radio

TV On The Radio is a New York City avant-garde indie rock band formed in 2001, whose music spans genres as diverse as freeform jazz, a cappella, psychedelia and trip-hop. The core members are Tunde Adebimpe (vocals/loops), Kyp Malone (vocals/guitars/loops) and David Andrew Sitek (music/guitars/keys/loops) but when live they are accompanied by a full band and on their records they are joined by additional musicians such as Jateel Bunton (drums), Gerard Smith (bass) (Both of whom have become official members since 2006's Return To Cookie's Mountain) Katrina Ford of the band Celebration (vocals), Martin Perna (flute/bari/alto) and Nick Zinner (guitar) of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. David Bowie also sang backup vocals on the latest album Return to Cookie Mountain.

Another Daniel Cyanide recomendation.. Bought the album recently and it's been on repeat ever since. Brilliant work. Like nothing I've ever heard.. Very impressive. 'Wolf Like Me' is the first single and it's a bangin lick. Full of energy, passion, aggression and edge. Check the vids for proof! [One live on Letterman, the other is the official video to the single]
