TV On The Radio: Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes
Buy! - (Touch and Go)
Brooklyn-based group TV on the Radio mixes post-punk, electronic and other atmoshperic elements in such a creative way on their debut full-length that it only makes sense that its core duo, vocalist Tunde Adebimpe and multi-instrumentalist/producer David Andrew Sitek, are both visual artists as well as musicians. Adebimpe is a graduate of NYU's film school and specializes in stop-motion animation, which his Brothers Quay-like video for the Yeah Yeah Yeah's single Pin demonstrates amply. He is also a painter, as is Sitek, who also produced the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Machine EP and their full-length Fever to Tell. I saw them live at Neumo's, which was my first visit to this awesome re-opened venue and their incredible sound system made me fall in love with this band whose live show was incredibly captivating. 5/15/2004 - Cheryl Waters
