Watch TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone As A Brooklyn Music Store Clerk On Broad City

Broad City is the funniest comedy on television right now, hands fucking down. The show is only in its second season, but it has established a certain level of musical clout after featuring a song by Father/Daughter signee Small Wonder in an episode several weeks ago, not to mention when the creators/protagonists Abbi Jacobson and… More »

A Farewell To Zebulon, And An Era For Williamsburg

“This was my first home when I moved to Brooklyn,” said Colin Stetson as he wiped down his face. “Every show from 2004 to 2005 that I played was here. Thank you to Jeff and Joss. I will miss it.” Stetson’s cheeks weren’t wet with tears, but rather the sweat that comes with simulating the… More »

Amadou & Mariam – “Wily Kataso” Video (Feat. Tunde & Kyp Of TV On The Radio)

Amadou & Mariam will put out a new record this week, and it’s a fairly star-studded one at that, as we’ve already heard the Santigold-featuring “Dougou Badia.” Now the Malian duo have put out a video for album track “Wily Kataso,” the song that features TVOTR members Tunde Adebimpe and Kyp Malone in support. Watch… More »

New Party Systems (Feat. Members Of TVOTR, Liturgy) – “We Are” Video

New Party Systems is a new supergroup, featuring TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone and two current and former members of Liturgy, and their track “We Are” is an honorable attempt at creating an anthem for the Occupy Wall Street movement. The group doesn’t show up in the video. Instead, starry-eyed Occupy sympathizers from around… More »

Tinariwen – “Tenere Taqqim Tossam” (Feat. Tunde Adebimpe & Kyp Malone) (Four Tet Remix)

Here Four Tet Kieran Hebden has his way with the Tishoumaren gyspy folk-blues avatars Tinariwen in seven-minute remix fashion. The African outfit’s latest LP for ANTI- Tassili is the first of theirs to abandon electric guitars in favor of acoustics, which makes Four Tet’s cut-and-paste electronic manipulations of this TVOTR-guesting track ironic, and typically creative.

Kyp Malone – “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” (Talking Heads Cover) Live Video

Here’s another clip from Our Show With Elliot Aronow, the downtown-arts web series nailing the alternageist by framing fringe-culture heroes in off-beat poses: There was Das Racist covering their wit-rap forefathers Beastie Boys with Hishaam Bharoocha, Ted Leo and Max Silvestri talking anonymous internet assholes, and most memorably Kyp Malone reviewing films on a five-burger… More »

Kyp Malone Reviews Films On A Five-Burger Scale

Voluminously head-haired Bedford Ave. mascot Kyp Malone is just a cackling laugh, oratorical cadence, and three-piece suit away from being able to roll as Cornel West any given Halloween, so it’s cute to see him take up an (anti-)intellectual pose in this clip from recently launched downtown-arts web series Our Show With Elliot Aronow. Herei… More »

Jeff Mangum To Perform At Chris Knox Benefit

Last June, the legendary New Zealand musician Chris Knox suffered a “series” of strokes. A few months later, we posted Jeff Mangum’s cover of the Tall Dwarfs gem “Sign The Dotted Line,” a take that appears on Stroke – Songs For Chris Knox, a two-disc collection released by Merge to help raise money for Knox’… More »

Fucked Up & Friends Cover “Do They Know It’s Christmas?”

We waited all yesterday for this to pop up on iTunes and it’s finally arrived… No strangers to the tradition of benefit recordings — see the “David Christmas” 7″, “Year Of The Pig,” etc. — Fucked Up gathered a bunch of friends to record a cover of Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” with… More »

New Rain Machine – “Smiling Black Faces” (Stereogum Premiere)

Our first taste of Rain Machine, aka the solo project from TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone, was the chaotically upbeat “Give Blood.” It didn’t leave much space for you to catch your breath, if breath needed catching. Malone wisely follows it with “Smiling Black Faces,” a mellower political/personal anthem that gains momentum with each… More »

New Rain Machine (TV On The Radio’s Kyp Malone) – “Give Blood”

Here’s the first single from Kyp Malone’s ten-track solo debut LP. Kyp says the album is “a nearly full spectrum of frequencies audible to the human ear, a reflection of a variety of emotions and situations real and imagined – some rhythm some rhyme.” OK! If all of that means it sounds like TV O… More »

Premature Evaluation: Yeah Yeah Yeahs – It’s Blitz!

Major questions (and complaints) about Yeah Yeah Yeahs third full-length will undoubtedly center around the prevalence of synthesizers and various electronics and seeming lack of Brian and Nick’s standard drum and guitar blazes. Icy and fuzzed analog synthesizers and skittering electronic beats do appear on It’s Blitz!, and considering the emphasis usually placed on Zinner’… More »

New Iran – “Buddy”

This “new” Iran track isn’t new — it’s been floating around since the summer of ’05 — but it’s good to see Aaron Aites finally officially followup his excellent second album, 2002’s The Moon Boys. In May, I wrote about three new tracks streaming at the band’s MySpace, but then came silence, so it seemed… More »

Band To Watch: Miles Benjamin Anthony Robinson

At some point last summer, after hearing the amazing job Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor did producing Dirty Projector’s Rise Above — we’ve been impressed, variously, with the way he’s producing around the strengths and attributes of his artists — we asked him what else he had coming up. Of course and as we know, there’… More »
