Additional Information

2003 5 track major indie label debut 12" vinyl EP pressing. Songs about patience, guidance, realizing full well that you do have a soul, and the hopeful horror of that soul being forced out of your body into something, anything, new. Songs about lost loves reincarnated with everything but the memory of you, beautiful eulogies for a dead century. Not so funny songs for a not so funny world but danceable, hummable, swayable, able. able. able. "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. " - CMJ

The basic form of this album isn't hard to understand - fantastic, R&B-inflected vocals and harmonies, metallic guitar clanging in the background, throbbing bass, electronic beats, along with a shot of great production. The overall result, however, is a downright fantastic EP.
Track by track:
"Satellite" - The EP opens with this uptempo number, with bass and drums throbbing like a mechanical heartbeat and the guitar grinding ominously in the distance. The vocals are soulful, yet sad and detached, floating over the verse to a rhythmic, harmonized chorus that matches the drive of the instruments. Near the end, the music moves into dreamier variations on the theme created. Great song.
"Staring at the Sun" - A standout track. It opens with a pair of dreamy, falsetto vocals, harmonized beautifully. Then the bass arrives. The fuzzy tremolo bass underlies the rest of the song, just barely off time with the simple drum machine, and provides a throbbing, organic backdrop... Read more
What a pleasant surprise - TV on the Radio has a sound that is unique and addictive, some sort of twisted indie-dirty blues-kid a hybrid that left me salivating for more. Of note is the hypnotic opener Satellite, the growling spiritual Blind and a truly inspired acapella cover of The Pixies' Mr. Grieves that left me in awe of this band and Tunde Adebimpe's vocal prowess. There will be comparisons to Peter Gabriel, prog rock and the recent crop of throwback bands, but it's more complex and satisfying than that would lead one to believe. I'm in eager anticipation for a full length, this EP is more than enough to convince me something very special may be on it's way.
I was surprised to see some negative reviews for this EP, which I find endlessly listenable. There's no accounting for taste, I guess. Still, it's hard for me to believe that anyone wouldn't love Tunde Adebimpe's voice - so effortlessly cool, emotive and with a great sense of timing in his delivery. The music, too, is excellent, evoking for me a more serious Fun Boy Three crossed with Peter Gabriel's third self-titled album (aka, "Melt") - spare and almost creepy, but with an undercurrent of playfulness and some cool rhythms. There's a hypnotic mimimalism to the forms of the songs that I think provide a great tableau for both the musical textures that the band conjures up and for Adebimpe's loose vocal style, none of which would work as well in a standard verse-chorus-verse-chorus song structure.
The four originals on this album are all excellent and get better with each listen. Their drugged-out doo-wop cover of the Pixies' "Mr. Grieves" is entertaining... Read more
