Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band – “The Blast, The Bloom”

There are no current plans for a new TV On The Radio album (nothing that’s been announced, at least) despite the recent release of super-heavy cut “Mercy,” but that doesn’t mean the members aren’t busy. Frontman Tunde Adebimpe’s Higgins Waterproof Magic Band, who performed with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs at a Hurricane Sandy relief event in Brooklyn, are slated to release a self-titled, five-track EP in the fall. Check out the ascendent lead-off track “The Blast, The Boom” below. The band will also hold a Sunday night residency at Union Pool in Williamsburg, Brooklyn through October.

Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band is out 10/1 via the band’s own label ZNA.
