TV on the Radio, The Current, MPR, 8 October 2006

Given how hot TV on the Radio are at the moment, I am quite surprised that no one else has posted this MPR in-studio performance (at least I haven’t seen it if they have). Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe visited MPR to chat about being the best band in Brooklyn and to play three extremely stripped down songs. It filled with soulful harmonies, gently strummed guitar and sleighbells. I think it is pretty rad, hope you do too.

Eagle-eyed readers will notice that this post is going up early. This weekend I am going The Land of Chocolate (.mp3 via, well actually not Germany, but this one) so I wanted to make sure you didn’t have to wait until Monday. I’m considerate like that. See you next week.

    This is brilliant. I check MPR’s website periodically, but hadn’t run across this concert. I love the song selection. A live performance of “Dry Drunk Emperor” is a rare thing, which is too bad. I saw them perform two nights in a row in San Francisco last May, and they didn’t fit it into either set. Still, those were the best concerts I’ve ever seen. The world needs more TVOTR.
