Smoke Notes

Their debut Desperate Youth, Blood Thirsty Babes was one of the highlights of 2004 and a breath of fresh air for the floundering 'alternative' or 'indie' rock genre. With Return To Cookie Mountain TV On The Radio up the ante and show that the "sophomore slump" is for suckers.
Producer David Sitek once again provides a kaleidoscopic musical backdrop that vocalists Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone can work their magic over. Adebimpe sings like a lost star of the Motown era who has wandered into a bohemian New York loft while Malone effortlessly weaves in and out of him with angelic counter melodies. To say these two are gifted vocalists is a supreme understatement.
More than it's predecessor, Return to Cookie Mountain sees the rhythm section coming to the fore, with a real drummer adding a more organic groove to proceedings. David Bowie - one of the many "celebrity fans" the band garnered with their debut - shows that his props were more than just lip service by lending his distinctive baritone to 'Province', one of the albums many standout tracks.
Sitek though, is the star here - showing once again that he is a genius behind the mixing console. Each song is an aural tapestry that have aspects of such greats as King Tubby, (The Beach Boys) Brian Wilson and My Bloody Valentine's Kevin Shields with the cut-up hip-hop sensibilities of similar-minded art-niks the Antipop Consortium or 13 & God thrown in for good measure.
Return To Cookie Mountain confirms TV On The Radio's place as the purveyors of some of the most innovative and vital music happening today and is a definite contender for the album of 06. Highly Recommended.
