TV on the RADIO: Return to Cookie Mountain
This is definitely my first exposure to the 'experimental rock' of TV on the Radio. Seeing that they won the coveted, indie Shortlist Music Prize after little exposure and also having been championed by the blogger community, the new album, Return to Cookie Mountain was on my list to check out.
At first listen, the sound is a bit scattered and doesn't seem cohesive, with rock, electronica, hip hop and turntables doing as they please. A few listens in and you find the sound works as its own animal and their are plenty of gems within.
