TV on the Radio - Young Liars
Eventually TV on the Radio became a thing, and I figured I should listen to the EP and figure out what all the hubub was about. When I put the disc on, I opened up the liner notes as I habitually do and was surprised to find that the EP was recorded in a Brooklyn bedroom. The DIY nature of the EP gave it some cred, and upon repeated listens I found myself really enjoying it. It would be nearly impossible to describe TV on the Radio to someone who had never heard them. I know one review described them as post-rock, but I have no idea what that even means. There are some electronic, hip-hop, and indie elements in the music, but it would be a lie to say that it fits nicely in any one of them. Basically TV on the Radio is a bunch of interesting dudes who make interesting music. This EP opened my eyes, but I won't pretend I was on the band early. Heath was.
