    Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes

    Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes starts right where Young Liars left off and propels TV On The Radio into uncharted sonic territory. Herein you will find more undeniably catchy songs with incredible production, arrangements and champion crooning, including some stunning a cappella performances. Featured are nine songs about discordant living, misrepresentation, life, afterlife and love. They're pop songs, they're rock songs, they're art songs, they're whatever you want them to be.


    TV On The Radio's popularity and artistic potential has grown consistently from their 2003 EP Young Liars, to this their follow up full length, Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes and culminated thus far on their latest release Return to Cookie Mountain which was considered by most to be the 2006 album of the year.

    Nine Types Of Light

    Get your emotions strong - this album packs some heartstring heat! If the band's last album, Dear Science, took us to a celebration on the edge of the abyss, where on earth will they take us now?


    Described as boldly catchy 21st-century noise-rock doo-wop soul, both fans and critics adore TV On the Radio. Seemingly impossible, the group somehow always top themselves - will they do it again with Nine Types of Light?

    Young Liars

    This is the first release from TV On The Radio and they've been building momentum ever since. The five track EP features the characteristics that the band has since perfected on their subsequent releases; shifting dynamics, dense atmospheres, vocal layering and great production and strong songwriting. Also includes guest contributions from Aaron Hemphill (Liars), Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Brian Chase (Yeahs Yeah Yeahs).


    TV on the Radio devotes a level of attention to complex vocal layering that is rarely seen in American bands at all, much less ones from hipster Brooklyn. Musician/Producer David Andrew Sitek provides the perfect complement, giving each of Adebimpe's excursions a backdrop of surprisingly organic programming.

    Fourth Dimension

    Two essential recordings from Radiophonic Workshop members Paddy Kingsland & Peter Howell get the reissue treatment on June 2nd with the vinyl only release of Kingsland's exceptional 1973 album Fourth Dimension, alongside fellow member Peter Howell's ARP synth opus, 1978's Through A Glass Darkly [MOVLP1036]. Both of these albums have been crate diggers' gold for many years and are reissued for the very first time.


    The BBC Radiophonic Workshop came together in 1958 to produce music and sound effects for BBC Radio and Television programmes using hand built, custom designed electronic, tape and electro-acoustic techniques. By the mid-1970s, the synthesiser era was well-and-truly here, with the Workshop increasingly being asked to provide theme tunes and background music for TV and radio.


    Fourth Dimension is a landmark in synthesiser music and covers a broad spectrum of styles. Listening now it fits very well into the then craze for electronic, textural, spacey synthesiser music.

    On The Track

    ON THE TRACK is among the most remarkable debut albums of 1975 or any other year, a reverent and remarkably authentic revival of late 19th century and early 20th century popular music, spanning Roaring Twenties radio ditties, Depression-era ragtime, the folk-jazz of World War II, and still-sung favorites by songwriters like Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael & Johnny Mercer, Fats Waller, Al Dubin & Harry Warren, Lonnie Johnson, and Jimmie Rodgers. The album - which sees Redbone accompanied by such studio luminaries as drummer Steve Gadd, percussionist Ralph MacDonald, and the great double bassist Milt Hinton - was an across-the-board success, reaching #83 on Billboard's overall Top LPs & Tape chart amidst widespread critical acclaim. TMR's exclusive vinyl reissue of ON THE TRACK comes in a 12 single pocket, direct-to-board replica of the original Warner Bros. Records release, with classic cover art featuring a Chuck Jones illustration of Merrie Melodies star Michigan J. Frog.


    Leon Redbone - who only recently retired from active recording and live performance - is a true original, a one of a kind singer, songwriter, and guitarist whose imitable interpretations of turn of the 20th century music have affirmed him as both Invaluable curator and resounding pop pioneer. Redbone began performing in Toronto more than four decades ago, earning the approval of such notables as Bob Dylan, The Lovin' Spoonful's John Sebastian, and famed producer John Hammond. Immediately iconic in his trademark Panama hat and dark sunglasses, Redbone proved an exceptional star, known far and wide via laconic performances on Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and A Prairie Home Companion. His remarkable work in the years since encompass a stunning range of creative output - 13 studio albums, sold out live performances around the globe, multiple TV themes, countless commercials, voiceovers, and a memorable duet with Zooey Deschanel of Baby, It's Cold Outside featured in the 2003 holiday blockbuster, Elf. Throughout, Redbone's greatest contribution has been his undying championship of America's musical heritage, his singular talent introducing generation after generation to a still potent folk tradition.

    Summer Of Fear

    As acclaimed as Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson's debut was when it finally received a proper pressing in 2008, the effort was meant to be a glorified demo. Summer of Fear is what happened six months later, as life alternated between darkness and light, and spare bedroom songs blossomed into speaker-popping arrangements of sweeping strings, honking horns, and chords that cut so deeply they're bound to leave a mark. Produced by TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone.

    Noah's Ark

    Since the mysterious and beautiful La Maison de Mon Reve surfaced in early 2004, CocoRosie have spent months traveling the world with the likes of Bright Eyes, TV On The Radio, Antony And The Johnsons, Devendra Banhart, and Blonde Redhead. Along the way, Noah's Ark took shape, where heart-offerings of friends, family, loved ones and lost ones surface gracefully, contributing depth to the narrative journey. Noah's Ark is the result of a rootless reality, a drifting consciousness across state lines, date lines, time lines...connected to the past, vague about the future. But the heart of these songs is always issued from a tender present.

    Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band

    Back in the spring, TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe promised that he had an EP on the way with his side-project Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band. Sure enough, the band have confirmed that their self-titled EP will be out on October 1 via their own ZNA Records.


    The EP contains five tracks. The opening cut, The Blast, the Boom is streaming below [via Pitchfork]. It's a tunefully soulful track that swells from minimal verses to richly textured choruses.


    Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band features Adebimpe alongside cohorts Ryan Sawyer, Josh Werner and Alex Holden. Adebimpe previously told Spin, We started doing mostly improvised shows but you do that a few times and songs start coming out of it. It started off pretty noisy and there's still a little bit of that element. It gets tripped out in places. If you like Can or This Heat, you'll probably be into it. We recorded five songs that I'm mixing right now. We'll put them out summer or early fall.


    TV on the Radio unveiled their Mercy single just a couple of weeks ago, and they announced their departure Interscope earlier this year.

    Nevermen

    The unlikely union of TV on the Radio singer Tunde Adebimpe, Faith No More frontman Mike Patton and rapper Adam Doseone Drucker - who call themselves Nevermen - will finally release their self-titled debut! The trio's first single is the quirky, cinematic avant-pop single Tough Towns. Five minutes of eerie synthesizers and understated hip-hop beats, the song boils down to a single sentence that the singers all recite about persevering out of a small town: It's where everything you never want keeps coming from.


    'Tough Towns' is dedicated to anyone remotely young, feeling inexplicably inspired in the 'nowhere' they are from, says Drucker, who was born in Napa, Idaho, but grew up bouncing around between New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia. May you soon escape with style into elsewhere. --Rollingstone

    Rain Machine

    Rain Machine is a startling new musical venture from Kyp Malone, known to many as guitarist/singer for soulful art rockers TV On The Radio. For Rain Machine, Malone takes the influences that have always bubbled beneath the surface in TVOR; blues, gospel, 60s jazz, even African music, and brings them to the fore. Performing all the parts himself, Malone has fashioned a deeply personal journey through modern life, looking back on the weight of the history behind us. The result is a communiquÉ from the soul, if the Rolling Stones stripped away the glitz to find their emotional core on Exile on Main Street, then Malone has performed the same rite here, in all its murky, mercurial glory. Rain Machine will surprise some TVOR fans, stun others, but all will be transported by this dense, spiritual music. Produced by Ian Brennan (Ramblin' Jack Elliott, Lucinda Williams, Jonathan Richman).

    Run The Jewels 3


    Gold Colored Vinyl


    Includes Poster & Sticker Sheet


    Run the Jewels have finally announced the full details of their highly anticipated new studio album, RTJ3.


    The album features Danny Brown, Kamasi Washington, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Trina, Boots, and more. It features the previously released songs "Talk to Me," "Panther Like a Panther (I'm the Shit)," and "2100."


    Timothy Saccenti, Run the Jewels' frequent artistic collaborator, made the new album's cover. RTJ shared a statement about how the new album's artwork fits in the trilogy of covers. It depicts the RTJ logo as "a sculpture of the hands cast in metal, chromed, and gold-plated":


    For us, the RTJ1 hands were about "taking what's yours"-your world, your life, your attitude. The RTJ2 hands were wrapped in bandages, signifying injury and healing, which for us represented the growth in ideas and tone of that album. For RTJ3 the bandages are off, the chain is gone and the hands have been transformed into gold. For us this represents the idea that there is nothing to take that exists outside of yourself. You are the jewel.

    Exploding Head

    Exploding Head is A Place To Bury Strangers' sophomore album and first for Mute. The band had one simple goal during the recording process: The original idea, says vocalist/guitarist Oliver Ackermann, was to create the craziest, most f'ed-up recording ever.


    In late 2008, shortly following a support slot on MGMT's U.K. tour, APTBS began tracking new songs at Death By Audio, the rehearsal/recording/living space that Ackermann helped build in 2005. The DIY-or-die building is also an independent venue and the headquarters of Ackermann's Death By Audio company, a customized guitar pedal manufacturer that counts U2, TV on the Radio and My Bloody Valentine among its many happy customers.


    During the Exploding Head recording process engineer Andy Smith (Paul Simon, David Bowie) took the band to a whole other level says Ackermann. I love the interplay and contrasts between something that's pretty and something that's scary, he explains. Taking listeners to different places, even in one song, is so important, whether it makes them cry or pissed off. If you listen closely, some of the riffs on this record are actually like Ramones songs or '60s bubblegum pop.

    Food

    On the one hand, there is Kelis Rogers, who first came to prominence singing the hook of Ol' Dirty Bastard's 1999 hit 'Got Your Money'. This was the visually and sonically compelling 20 year-old whose debut album 'Kaleidoscope' helped usher in the wave of sharp, thrillingly futuristic R&B that dominated the charts in the early Noughties, as exemplified by her global hit, 'Milkshake'.


    On the other there is Dave Sitek, guitarist in acclaimed Brooklyn experimentalists TV On The Radio and producer to a certain kind of smart, indie band (the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals and Liars to name a few).


    'Food' is a startling combination of Kelis' most frank and vulnerable vocals to date, and Sitek's inimitable sonic imprint. Littered with transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis' unique voice. The latter has only improved with time and experience, and the album candidly explores pain, happiness and everything in between.


    Recorded at Sitek's house in LA (and entirely produced by him), Kelis' new album, 'Food,' mints a sound that's rootsy without ever being self-consciously retro, that pitches live horns and gospel organ against electronics, that for all its classic soul and funk influences, couldn't have been made any time but now.
