Editors’ Notes

Kyp Malone is truly a restless soul. Not content with making music with TV On the Radio and Iran, he ventures out with his solo vehicle Rain Machine. Malone’s distinctive voice has rarely sounded this compelling — by turns, he sings with a strangled howl, a creepy falsetto and a keening yodel. The ominous mood he sustains throughout is enhanced by lean, prickly arrangements blending the bleakest aspects of gospel with the haunting tones of traditional folk balladry. Songs like “Smiling Black Faces,” “Leave the Lights On” and “Free Ride” blaze with submerged fire, gaining power from their restraint. The fragmented lyrics of songs like “Winter Song” and “Desperate Bitch” conjure up shadowy country landscapes blighted by violence and oppression. The more animated tracks — especially the percussion-driven “Give Blood” and the galloping, oddly bluesy “Hold You Holy” — are riveting and unnerving at once. Within this dark framework, Malone manages some elegant moments, such as the misty atmospherics in “Driftwood Heart.”

TVotR on the rocks

This is like a bluesy, chilled version of TV on the Radio. The melodies are varied, beautiful and hypnotic. The lyrics are powerful. The vocals are phenominal. My personal favorites are New Last Name, Driftwood Heart, and especially Love Wont Save You (the ending of the song is just...wow) and the EPIC last track, Winter Song. I thought I loved TVotR's Dear Science a lot, but this cd is quickly rising to its stature. A must buy in my book.

worth every penny

I love when a great band, such as TVOR, branches out to do a solo project that is equally worth listening to.

by the way "IMUSICS", it is 72 cents a song if you buy the album.

Kyp Malone is amazing. This music puts me in a trance and i don't want out. I love TV on the Radio and Kyp doing his own thing apart from his band is inspirational and beautiful. This albulm takes music to another level.

Rain Machine is the solo project of Kyp Malone, also a member of TV on the Radio and Iran. However, Malone's solo work dates farther back than his contributions to either of those groups: he began recording and performing on his own when he moved to New York City in 2000, originally working under the name "Black Lights". After being alerted by a Texas band using the same name, he switched to the Rain Machine moniker. Malone signed to Anti- Records in...
