Albenrezension

With lyrics and vocals that are just as ambitious and attention-getting as the music surrounding them, TV on the Radio have always had a lot going on in their music. Indeed, Return to Cookie Mountain was so elaborate that topping it would be difficult, so on Dear Science, (yes, the comma is intentional) the band channels its focus into lean, nimble songs with more structure and polish — and more focus on Tunde Adepimbe's and Kyp Malone's vocals — than any of TV on the Radio's previous work. This immediacy and crystalline clarity take some getting used to, especially compared to Cookie Mountain's lavish yet organic sound: "Family Tree"'s strings, pianos, and plainly worded vulnerability make it one of the band's most accessible songs, but it doesn't feel like anything was sacrificed to make it so anthemic. That feeling only deepens on the self-evidently sexy "Red Dress," which uses Antibalas' vibrant brass and taut guitars to show-stopping effect.

As Dear Science, unfolds, it becomes clear that it isn't so much a radical change for TV on the Radio as it is a slight but significant shift in approach. "Stork and Owl," an inspired mix of hypnotically looping samples and flowing, real-time soulfulness, and "Love Dog," which boasts some of Adepimbe's most affecting singing since "Staring at the Sun," could have fit easily on earlier albums with a few sonic tweaks. And, like Desperate Youth, Bloodthirsty Babes and Return to Cookie Mountain, Dear Science, begins with an epic statement of purpose — although "Halfway Home" is as sleek as it is grand, sprinting towards its end with streaking guitars — and ends in an embrace with "Lover's Day," a duet with Celebration's Katrina Ford that turns "I wanna break your back" from a threat to a come-on. Tackling love and war, often within the same song, is all in a day's work for TV on the Radio. However, the band's take on these themes is subtly but notably more optimistic here, as though lightening their sound lightened their mood as well. "DLZ" broods over "the long-winded blues of the never," but on the brilliantly funky "Golden Age," Adepimbe sings "there's a golden age coming 'round" without a trace of irony. Malone's "Crying" calls out the wrongs of the world but ends up just as hopeful as it is angry, while the pun in "Dancing Choose"'s title is pointed enough that the song almost doesn't need to prove that dancing on your troubles is powerfully therapeutic as thoroughly as it does, but that's just another example of this album's rare balance between craft and passion. That comma at the title's end seems naggingly open-ended at first, but it's actually a perfect fit for Dear Science,'s openness to possibilities and positivity. [The CD was also released with bonus tracks.]

Die Wissenschaft weiss zu begeistern...

Die 5 talentierten Jungs aus Brooklyn haben es tatsächlich geschafft, ein von dem überragenden Opener bis hin zum letzten Track perfektes Album zu kreieren. Was sich auf den beiden Vorgängern schon mehr als nur angedeutet hat, bewahrheitet sich nun auf 'Dear Science'. Sie schaffen hier wirklich den Spagat zwischen experimenteller und doch (nach mehrmaligen Anhören) eingängig, aber zu keiner Zeit langweilig werdender Musik. Das Zusammenspiel zwischen den Soundkreationen von David Andrew Sitek und dem Gesang von Kyp Malone und Tunde Abebimpe passt tatsächlich zum Albumtitel - es ist wirklich mittlerweile zu einer Wissenschaft geworden. Wenn zu meiner Schulzeit doch Wissenschaft so viel Spaß gemacht hätte...

Excellent: Album des Jahres!!

Höre das Album nun schon seit dem Erscheinungstermin auf Endlosschleife ohne mich auch nur eine Sekunde dabei zu langweilen. Eine echt grandiose Scheibe haben TV OTR da mal wieder abgeliefert. Zwischen Pop, Electro und Alternative. Von Melancholisch, episch bis funky und freaky - einfach alles perfekt, gewagt, nicht zu harmonisch und dauerhaft spannend. Damit wäre mal wieder bewiesen, dass es auch heute noch innovative Musik gibt, die nicht schon irgendwann mal dagewesen oder nach Masche 0815 gestrickt ist!!! Mehr muss man nicht sagen! Einfach anhören und staunen!

Biografie

Genre: Alternative

Jahre aktiv: '00s, '10s

From their beginnings as Brooklyn-based experimenters to one of the most acclaimed bands of the 2000s and 2010s, TV on the Radio mixed post-punk, electronic, and other atmospheric elements in vibrantly creative ways, and are both visual artists as well as musicians. The group began when multi-instrumentalist/producer David Andrew Sitek moved into the building where vocalist Tunde Adebimpe had a loft; each of them had been recording music on his own, but realized their sounds worked well together....
