Hailing from Brooklyn, TV On The Radio is an electronic-influenced, experimental indie-rock band that released their first studio album, Desperate Youths, Bloodthirsty Babes, in 2004. In addition to good album reviews, the album’s single “Staring At The Sun” gained them a lot of press. The follow-up, Return To Cookie Mountain, contains my personal favorite TVOTR song, “Wolf Like Me.” In 2008 and 2011, the band put out Dear Science and Nine Types Of Light respectively. Both albums garnered lots of acclaim, with Dear Science winning Rolling Stone’s coveted Album of the Year prize. The amazing thing about this band is that none of their albums sound quite the same. The dreamy, art-rock soundscapes of their first album give way to heavier music on their later projects. By their fourth album, TVOTR was putting out heavier, rock-sounding grooves complete with wild falsetto and saxophone. Support them on iTunes and check out some of my favorites below.
