TV On The Radio - Return to Cookie Mountain LP
Label: Touch And Go
Limited edition orange vinyl.
TV On The Radio's story is one of synchronicity, of serendipity, of epiphany. TVOTR began with Tunde Adebimpe (vocals) and David Sitek (mulƟ‐instrumentalist and producƟon kingpin) being roommates, drinking way too much coﬀee, making art: comics, movies, paintings. They started trading tapes of each other's four track recordings and thought it'd be fun to try to make "a real record" out of all that stuﬀ.
Touch And Go released TV On The Radio's stunning EP "Young Liars" in July 2003, and it immediately marked them out as one of the most musically innovative bands to have emerged in years.
Their debut full‐length Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes set 2004 oﬀ to a dramatically positive start. With new member Kyp Malone sharing songwriting, guitar and vocal duƟes, TVOTR was quickly on the path to the being one of the most talked‐about new groups in America. AŌer touring as a trio, Jaleel Bunton (drums) and Gerard Smith (bass) joined the band to create the oﬃcial TVOTR line up.
The band's second studio album, Return to Cookie Mountain, leaked in early 2006 and garnered pre‐release praise from such outlets as Pitchfork before its oﬃcial release in July. Return to Cookie Mountain is ﬁlled with guest appearances from David Bowie, CelebraƟon, AnƟbalas, Blonde Redhead, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Nick Zinner.
