TV On The Radio - Playhouses

TV On The Radio are another one of those bands whose universally praised last album Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes simply passed me by, for one reason or another. Still, I always had them tucked away in the back of my head, waiting to be thoroughly impressed by them one day down the road. And now I think that day might be here, because some of these tracks on their new record are pretty damn cool and have me really intrigued. Clearly they are a band that defies categorization... I'm not quite sure what I expected, but this mixture of smart beats, haunting male/female vocals and throbbing keyboards has me captivated. The new album Return To Cookie Mountain will be released through Interscope Records in (I believe?) May, and I have a sneaking suspicion it may end up on more than a few people's top 10 lists for the year.
