I feel like TV on the Radio's 'Blues From Down Here' could very well be the best song of all time. It's just that no one knows it yet.
Full track here:
From the depths I called you, ma
for your breath and breast so warm and fabled
Your hands reached inside
grabbed my heart, enlarged, disabled
Hailed for your mercy
An ear that cares
How the blues sound from up there?
With my wet hair, I wipe the blood off of your feet
Carry me through these shark infested waters
Well you spared me from slaughter for sure,
but these sharks are equally in need of a martyr
Oh kindness shared
Undeserved purest gift, this life you spared
How the blues sound from up there?
Teeth gnashing, masticating this dumb tongue
Quiet now, quiet now, hear that supplication
echo into the void
been recieved by no one
Oh my sweet dear
Cold alone poisoning ourselves
engulfed in our own tears
Signed, blues from down here.

16 Aug 2007, 01:59 by nalyd_With the discovery of TV on the Radio's 2006 album, Return To Cookie Mountain, I was amazed that I hadn't heard of them before. Venturing back to a bit of their earlier work, they have some fantastic songs, including Young Liars (off the self-titled EP), Staring At The Sun, King Eternal, and other great songs off their earlier albums (namely Young Liars (EP) and Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes). But their 2006 album surpassed their previous attempts; winning tons of awards for album of the year (#4 on Rolling Stone's Top 50 Albums of 2006) and deservedly so. Every song on the album is a treat, such as the single Province, a David Bowie influenced track (With the man himself assisting with vocals), Wolf Like Me, their second single, Blues From Down Here, and, for that matter, all of the rest of the 11 songs on the album. Along with those; the bonus tracks are full of goodies as well; a remix of Hours by the talented El-P being the best.
5 May 2007, 02:14 by femme_en_grisTodo dia, no caminho para escola, estou ouvindo a mesma playlist, então, como eu sou muito à toa, resolvi vir aqui postá-la e sugerir que vocês ouçam as músicas. São todas ótimas. ^^
1. You Know My Name - Chris Cornell
Abertura do 007 - Casino Royale. E para ser sincera, a única coisa que presta naquele filme.
2. Democracy? - The Damned
Música na linha "anarquista-pacifista-pessimista".
"'Cause revolution changes nothing
And voting changes even less"
3. Not if you were the last Junkie on Earth - Dandy Warhols
Algo divertido. E se quiser parecer cool, coloque uns piercings e vire gay, mas usar heroína é tão passé.
4. Good Day (Dresden Dolls Cover) - Raul Corrêa
O Raul é um amigo meu que toca piano e canta. Ele fez dois covers de dresden dolls, e esse daí é o melhor.
5. Still Take You Home – Arctic Monkeys
Minha música preferida da bandinha mais pop do mundo pseudo indie.
6. Think I’m in Love – Beck
18 Mar 2007, 23:46 by GobberGoFri 16 Mar – TV on the Radio, Subtle
The other night I saw the best show of my life.
First of all, the opening act, Subtle, was awesome. I didn't know who they were going into the show, but after their first song I realized that I knew their lead vocalist/rapper from his other projects. It was Dose One, the absurdly esoteric and experimental motormouth associated with the Anticon collective, formerly of Themselves, whose The No Music is a favorite of mine from a couple years ago. So that was a nice surprise. The show was cool too. Less straight hip-hop, with a full band including an amazing cellist and I think three synthesizers. Dose One had a bunch of props, including a pocketful of plastic forks he for some reason threw out at the audience. They were a good opening act because they were weird and fun (and funny, Dose actually told jokes during the show) and kept the audience interested. But on to the main act:
TV on the Radio. Front row, center. …
17 Feb 2007, 05:36 by GobberGoTV on the Radio is coming to my town! I'm excited, but I'm trying to get my friends (who don't know them already) to love the band enough to pay to see them. So I've compiled the following Best-of for TVOTR. The emphasis was on mainstream appeal, plus the songs that I just love, but are still "weird."
2. Staring At The Sun
3. Ambulance (bringing it down a notch, also my favorite TVOTR track)
6. Wolf Like Me (I just love the transition from Return to Cookie Mountain: Province to Playhouses to Wolf Like Me - fucking fantastic)
7. Mr. Grieves
8. Let The Devil In
9. Don't Love You
10. The Wrong Way
11. Young Liars
12. Blues From Down Here
13. Wear You Out
14. Robots (random track from OK Calculator - I like to end on an odd note, cause most people never listen all the way through a mix anyway.)
30 Jan 2007, 18:26 by mrkvmCounting down my top ten albums of 2006 with a set of reviews of all ten albums (yes, I'm still doing this even if 2007 is well underway at this point). Here's #5:
Return To Cookie Mountain (2006)
I originally had this higher on my list but decided that it is so well-known and hyped, that I would give up the higher spot to a different album. That, of course, doesn't change the fact that I listened to TV on the Radio's brilliant second album a massive amount this past year. It's funny, I've read a lot of complaints about this album: "Not as good as the first one!", "Just more of the same!", "Too inconsistent!", etc. However, my take was that they took their sound to a new level on this release and smoothed out some of the rough edges found on their debut.
One of the things I love about TV on the Radio is that while they are certainly drawing on a variety of influences…
2 Jan 2007, 14:34 by CoreboweThat's what I thought to myself after seeing Return To Cookie Mountain on nearly everybody's "Best of 2006" lists.. so I downloaded the album this morning (Boo, hiss.. so sue me!) and I'm about to give y'all a track-by-track review of the album based on first impressions. Please bear in mind I have never heard anything by TV on the Radio before and have no idea what to expect. Everything you read from this point is live as I listen to the song in question.
1.I Was A Lover
Hmm.. a rather noisy start. Strange brass sample, slightly irregular drum beat, lots of background 'noise'. It's not bad, per se, but it's weird. Very weird.
This is more like it. Got a good rhythm.. is it building up to something? Nope, doesn't sound like it. Still, very good. This I like a lot. Could quite happily listen to that one again!
They like to open with "oooh"s, don't they? This, like the first two, is very dreamscape-ish. Definitely thinking this would be a good album to fall asleep/get stoned to. …
