Less Art. More Rock.

Aftet that stupid post about malls, I gotta cool it up a bit. So since I haven't stopped boring people talking about it in real life, I'll bore you good people. The new TV on the Radio album "Return to Cookie Mountain?"

In short, it's good.

Really good.

I've been a fan of theirs for a few years and have always loved their fuzzed-out freakiness. But I wouldn't exactly call their sound commercially viable or easily palatable. They were one of the few bands a few years back that really put the Brooklyn music scene on the map. And I don't mean the bands priced out the East Village. I mean real grit and art—like Yo La Tengo, Clap Your Hands...., etc. Unfortunately TV on the Radio's tunes always lent themselves more to the art side of the equation. They've now come around to making rock art, not just art rock. There's alot of exciting stuff happening in Brooklyn right now. It'd be cool to be back there.

Besides, how could a band that looks this cool ever make anything not amazing?
