TV On the Radio announced they will release their new album, Seeds, November 18 on Harvest Records. The band s new single, Happy Idiot, premiered Sept. 1st on Sirius XMU.
Happy Idiot ignites a hearty introduction to Seeds, catapulting out of the gate with an earnestly frenetic beat over a sweet sweet chorus of resignation. One thing that remains a constant with TV on the Radio is that there is no constant, and one curveball trounces another on Seeds.
Seeds was recorded at Federal Prism in Los Angeles and produced by guitarist David Andrew Sitek.

Listening to these new songs I'm struck by the power and the energy, not to mention the strong melodies that abound. The band itself sounds tight and confident, clearly finding their sonic groove and locking in. For me, the brilliant "Right Now" is the highlight of the album, although I'm equally captivated by "Lazerray," a thumping rocker that sounds like a great long-lost Ramones songs. I want to shout "Gabba Gabba Hey" every time it plays!
If you've been a fan of the other TV on the Radio albums, don't miss the chance to hear this new one too. This is the sound of a talented band clicking on all cylinders.
I caught part of their set at Lala on the Live Stream and I was blown away. Arguably the best performance of this year's Lala, I decided to give Seeds a listen and wow! am I impressed. Please give this cd a listen. It is awesome. There are no "loser" or filler tracks on this cd, they are all great. Quartz, Happy Idiot and Winter are my favorite tracks. This cd will make you move.
As with all bands, however, especially those who have been around for a while and try (as most musicians do) to evolve their sounds, there will be old fans who want the band to continue making the music they (the fan) are familiar with, and will complain when the sound "changes". Read the other reviews if you care about that-- I DO NOT. What I care about is the "album" in front of me right now, and if it's good, it's good.
This one, to my ears, IS.
This is a great record, full stop. Production is off the charts. Songwriting is substantially more accessible than Nine Types but they've somehow upped the accessibility without losing the uniqueness that makes them stand out from the crowd.
This record is melodic, varied, impeccably produced and feels like it was written and constructed from a very honest place. If not for the signature sounds of the lead singer, this could pass for an Elbow record which, for me, is exceedingly high praise.
