TVOTR @ MHOW (4/12)
TV On The Radio

“…the immediately captivating Nine Types of Light movie is now available to stream on YouTube and purchase via iTunes, the same day the brand new, and largely beloved album of the same name hits streets. TV on the Radio‘s approach to promoting this album – through not only words and music, but also by epically re-imagining the album visually – is a truly forward thinking moment brought to you by one of music’s most groundbreaking acts.

The film includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the film, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future. Tunde also directed the music video for “Forgotten.”…”

Watch the entire movie at the end of this post. The list of directors and tracklist is down there too.

TV on the Radio celebrated “Nine Types of Light” with a hometown show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (4/12). Das Racist were the surprise opener. TV on the Radio step it up a notch with a headlining show at Radio City Music Hall tonight (4/13), before continuing on tour. Tickets for the big Manhattan show are still available (Light Asylum open). More pictures from last night, including the setlist, are below…
