#27 – TV on the Radio – Seeds – Feel Connected Top 50 Albums of 2014
Seeds is the band’s first album in three years and its first album on legendary ’70s prog-rock label Harvest. TV on the Radio peaked from 2006 to 2008, and the past several years have been trying for band. Their longtime bassist Gerard Smith passed away from cancer days after Nine Types of Light was released, and the group also left its label Interscope. With Seeds the band shares their new sleek sound, likely due to guitarist/producer David Sitek, and remind the listener that TV ON The Radio is still a really good rock band.
