I remember when I heard my first TV on the Radio song. It was off the excellent Return to Cookie Mountain and it was obviously "Wolf Like Me." That song shook me to my core. It was something I had never heard before, and I wanted more of that. TV on the Radio never truly gave me more of whatever "that" was but in the meantime introduced me to some truly excellent music. They are the reason the whole "alternative" title was created, as they are hard to classify. They are some weird dudes and they make good music. And remember when the lead singer Tunde was in that Ann Hathaway movie? Anyways, their newest LP Seeds is like the rest, very very good. But what is new? Well for one thing, it's surprisingly approachable. Now TVOTR will never get heavy play on KIIS FM but this is the kind of record that won't scare away new listeners not ready to make the heady heavy journey of albums past. Plus there is a emotional resonance, and not just happiness of listening to good music, but actual feels. Maybe it's the way Tunde screams "How much do I love you?" on album opener "Quartz." Or maybe it's the death of bass player Gerard Smith? Whatever the domino, the band has renewed both their bond in each other and in their listeners, and it shows.
