TV On The Radio – “Caffeinated Consciousness”

By Amrit Singh / March 10, 2011

For those left cold by the sedate side of “Will Do,” there is this, TV On The Radio’s next release from the forthcoming Nine Types Of Light taste. It’s called “Caffeinated Consciousness,” which is a telling title given the overall jolt this track provides coming on the back of the last one. Yes, it’s nice to hear them trying to speed up your heart rate a little — “Caffeinated” has an amped up So-era Peter Gabriel tone to it, switching between sections that clang and soothe. Try it on for size:

Nine Types Of Light is out 4/12. The band is playing two shows at SXSW (SPIN’s show at Stubb’s and another the next day), then Radio City the day after the album’s release, and Letterman the day after that. Also, they’ve got a plum slot on Sunday at Pitchfork Fest. Big time (I know they’re making it).
