TV on the Radio Fine-Tunes the Receptionnew

TV on the Radio's latest, Nine Types of Light, seems to mine deeper into their funky substratum. It feels crisp and direct with a strong backbeat. Kyp Malone, however, doesn't see it like points on a trajectory.

TV on the Radio's Kyp Malone Finds Himself With Solo Projectnew

With a lion's mane of hair concealing his head and face, Kyp Malone is easily the most recognizable unrecognizable member of TV on the Radio. He also comes across as the most reserved of the five-piece, which isn't to imply that Malone has nothing to say. Quite the contrary.

Flip the Switch and Begin Anew with TV on the Radionew

If Cookie Mountain closed a chapter for TV on the Radio's alabaster soul, then Dear Science signifies a new direction. Tunde Adebimpe calls it "brighter and cleaner," shorn of the dense layers of distortion of the past. The music is wide open. The future is wide open.
