TVOTR Mellow Out

Kyp, Tunde, and Dave Sitek dropped by America Online to play chilled-out, sans-drums versions of “Wash The Day,” “Young Liars,” and “Province.” Even without their kick-ass rhythm section, the band works some magic (particularly on the gorgeous “Province”).

The interview that follows is sorta tough to sit through, but the on-air talent does extract gems like other album titles TVOTR considered (Karmageddon and The Thickening) and Sitek’s elaboration on the meaning of Return To Cookie Mountain (“It’s kind of a choose your own adventure”). Gracias, Dave. Listen to the podcast here.
