I always thought of TV on the Radio as last-year-but-one’s Arcade Fire, except they didn’t blow up in quite the same way. They’ve got a similarly exciting live vibe, though, and will fill you with delight.
They performed at the ICA recently, which sold out too fast for me – reviews suggest that I missed out. This gig was at ULU, another great little venue.
Kyp Malone has fantastic hair. Tunde Adebimpe is so enthusiastic that you will do what he tells you to. David Andrew Sitek is always up to some kind of hijinks. The rest of the live band are no slouches, either.
“We were going to play Staring At The Sun accoustic for this tour.”
“What are you cheering for? That would be terrible!”
You don’t have a megaphone, and now you’re wondering why.
New album out this year. Apparently the internet-leaked version is sounding like the best thing ever, although it’s supposedly not the final mix.
