Leaked TV on the Radio tracks
So as many of you may know, electro-hiphop-funk-rockers TV on the Radio have a new album coming out in June entitled Return to Cookie Mountain. Because this is the blogosphere, of course, the album has leaked. Adrian was fortunate enough to come across the whole album, and has hooked me up with it, and I must say, I'm impressed. I have been a fan of TVotR for a while now, ever since Derek introduced me to the masterpiece that is Staring at the Sun. I also just enjoy saying Tunde Adebimpe (lead singer/songwriter of TVotR) . Anyways, Return to Cookie Mountain seems to be a much more experimental album, and has quite alot of promise. I've given each song a good listen, and have determined that "I Was a Lover" and "Let the Devil In" are far-and-away my favorites, so I decided to share them here with you. I Was a Lover has an offbeat and creative approach, and a nice buildup of interesting sounds, while Let the Devil in is more harmonious and more like old TVotR.
