In the “Bands-That-You-Don’t-Know-But-Know-You-Should” category, falls, for me, a band called TV on the Radio.
Somewhere, I read their sound described as:
The crossbred vocals of Peter Gabriel and Ozzy Osbourne fronting a pissed-off Beta Band.
Their new Touch and Go LP, “Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes” is set for release on March 9.
Check their site for a big ol’ list of tourdates. In the Ohio neck of the woods, they’ll be stopping for a night in Cleveland with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I think I’ll check them out this coming Monday, the 23rd, here in NYC.
Check out this blog, too. Funny, fantastical, clever stuff about religion, politics, rock n roll, deer pants, gorillas, and human nature.
