First up TV On The Radio. The people that made the best record of the whole of last year with their sublime, sumptuous 'Young Liars' EP. Well they now have their debut LP available via the nice people at 4AD. Its called 'Desperate Youth Blood Thirsty Babes' which goes straight in at No 1 of the awful titles list but the music contained within is quite brilliant. How do I describe them? The vocalist sounds exactly EXACTLY like Peter Gabriel, there's Pixies like guitar and AR Kane noises fluttering about. It's art rock, it draws on gospel, soul, indie, barbershop and hip hop. They look brilliant. This album maybe, maybe doesn-t quite live up to the stunning 'Young Liars' but is still the most original thing I've heard for awhile. If you only buy one record ever buy 'Young Liars' but if you buy your fair share you must add this one to the pile.
