an astonshing record that sounds as mind-blowingly off-kilter & exciting now, as it did upon release in 2004 - Endlessly appealing vocals weave their way through music that somehow combines cosmic jazz (sax & flute), amped-up electronica, twitchy, danceable beats & swathes of treated guitar into rich & endlessly surprising folds of sound.

. Founding member David Sitek produced albums for Liars & Yeah Yeah Yeahs, but he’d be the first to say that TVOTR are something else altogether. He met singer & lyricist Tunde Adebimpe back in 2000 & shortly afterwards they ventured onto local stages as a completely improvisational two-piece. Gradually, songs emerged from these explorations & the live side of things was bolstered by the arrival of guitarist Kyp Malone (who also supplies sweet falsetto harmony vocals), bassist Gerard Smith & drummer Jaleel Bunton, Brooklyn residents all. the heady blend of bedroom electronics, warm distortion & killer soul vocals sounded, & still sounds, like nothing else around.
