12 Songs, 52 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

TV on the Radio's fifth album sounds as fresh as their debut, proving that the band's incandescent fusion of alt, world, and electronic influences remains as inimitable today as it was in 2004. There are subtle tweaks to the formula, though: producer and founding member David Sitek employs a warmer sonic palette, and the songs aren't as frenetic. With its lockstep drums and whirring guitars, the single "Happy Idiot" nods to the saccharine precision of The Cars, while the horn section on "Could You" lends vibrancy to the song's motorik pulse. Seeds manages the neat trick of being the band's most accessible release to date while still being characteristically adventurous.
