Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Pop, rock, and art songs about discordant living, misrepresentation, life, afterlife, love, and love "after hours". Scandalous. Undeniably catchy songs with incredible production, arrangements, champion crooning, and a host of extras. "They sound like Pere Ubu meets Belfegore meets The Tar Babies meets a way less chilly Notwist with a smidge of Metric thrown in"--Jane.

Amazon.com

TVOTR is a highly original group from Brooklyn, NY characterized by vocals that range from crazily high-pitched to group chanting and a pop-based sound that’s rampantly experimental but always melodic. Unlike their school-of-’78-in-’04 peers such as the Rapture and Interpol, TVOTR’s music is as rooted in blues, free jazz and gospel as it is the post-punk canon or contemporary electronic music. This makes Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes far more interesting, naturally; the purely vocal "Ambulance" is novel and exciting as anything by Björk, Spongehead Experience or Pere Ubu. With lyrics that impressively, and un-preachingly, tackle issues of race and war, this finalist for 2004’s Shortlist Competition easily ranks among the best albums of that year. --Mike McGonigal
