It seems like the term "art rock" gets thrown around willy nilly, but at least in TV on the Radio's case, that's probably because "catchy, often weird mix of funk, post-punk, electro and rock that sometimes sounds like it's influenced by '80s pop" is just too unwieldy—and frontman Tunde Adebimpe and guitarist Dave Sitek just so happen to both be visual artists. Formed in 2001 in Brooklyn, N.Y., TV on the Radio quickly established themselves as a band that wasn't afraid to take sonic risks. TV on the Radio hasn't released a full-length since 2011's Nine Types of Light and the passing of their bassist, Gerard Smith, that year. But they granted listeners a sneak peek of the new album—set to be released sometime in the fall—with the 2013 release of new songs "Mercy" and "Million Miles." Twin Shadow is also on the bill.
