I havent given their latest album a listen yet even though I should. Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes is pretty sweet.

I heard a few songs by them. Not a fan, a bit too flat, and not really energetic either. Dare I even say dull...

I'm fairly certain "Blues down here" might be the best thing I've heard in the Indie world in a long long time.

Young Liars is one of my favorite E.P.es of the last five years, and RtCM is in my top five records last year. Sick band.

I dig TVOTR for their originality, and I think they can write some good music, but my problem with them is that it seems like, because they deviate so much from traditional chord theory, they often times don't know how to elaborate some of their songs to make them full compositions. They are a bit too creative for their own good at times. They'll have a very original and very cool sounding 4 chord progression, but, because it doesn't abide by traditional chord structure, it's difficult to put in a second part to the song. Then you get albums like Return To Cookie Mountain which is very creative and well produced, but it is dominated by songs that are comprised of the same 4 chords throughout the whole song, which can get irritatingly repititious. I like all of their songs individually. They're a nice break from the regular, but the irregularity paired with the repetition is a little much in large doses.

Wolf Like Me and Staring at the Sun are two of the best songs I discovered in the past year and a half.

TV on the radio is by far one of my favorite bands. Favorites of mine being Wolf Like Me, Staring At the Sun, Playhouses, and Let the Devil In.

They are fantastic.

new album leaked.

Havent been given a chance to listen to it as of yet, but I have a two hour drive back to school ahead of me this afternoon, so that should give me a better opportunity.

I'll give my word on the album later tonight.
