*Finally* got my copy of the new TV on the Radio, which goes under the improbable title of "Return to Cookie Mountain." The Euro version was out this week; the band's recently signed with Interscope, and the U.S. version doesn't come out 'til the fall.
First impressions? One of the best discs of the year. And although I'm wary of endorsing whatever illegal schemes you kids have up your sleeves -- the album's been floating around forever on the web. And the disc is pretty close to what's out there. So start clicking.
