Live footage of brand new TV on the Radio

May 15, 2013

I’m a pretty big fan of Brooklyn’s TV on the Radio, so when I saw they debuted a new track live, I literally GASPED. Here they are performing the new track, reportedly titled Mercy, live at All Tomorrows Parties over the weekend. They’re working on a brand new album! YES! Mercy’s a rambunctious, rocking, experimental track. Ah, yes, I’ve missed you guys. I still remember catching your show at the Independent SF back in May 2011 as if it were recently. What a show it was, right after your brief hiatus after the tragic loss of Gerard Smith (RIP). Electric. Amazing.

While You’re Here is a preview off Dirty Projectors’ upcoming new EP About to Die. It’s a string heavy, simple, yet lush, two minute piece. It’s somber and beautiful. What’s really special about the tune is the song was written the day of Gerard Smith’s wake. The late TV on the Radio member succumbed to cancer last year, if you might remember. It was a sad affair, and happened right before they toured for stand out, excellent 2011 album Nine Types of Light. One of the first shows they did upon ending their brief hiatus was the very one I attended in San Francisco. This is a well deserved, moving tribute. RIP Gerard. Love you, TV on the Radio.
