TV on the Radio, 'Nine Types of Light'

17. TV on the Radio, 'Nine Types of Light'

The most approachable set yet by these art-funkers finds sweetness amid emotional wreckage, with Dave Sitek's spangled production wrapping around the soulful vocal team of Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe like Christmas garland.
