A couple of years ago we saw TV On The Radio play a show in Berlin. Celebration were set to open but because the axles fell off their van (how does that happen?) on the way into town, singer/guitarist Kyp Malone took it upon himself to play a quick solo set in their stead. It was pretty good! Anti- Records announced this morning that the wooliest member of 2008's most beloved art-rockers is set to release a new full-length as Rain Machine, a pseudonym Malone settled on after he realized he didn't "like how 'Kyp Malone' looked on mock ups of t-shirts and fliers." Sonic details are scant at the moment but press release descriptors like "passionate," "emotionally raw," and "experimental" are being carefully applied. Malone's take is best:
"Buying and listening to this album will be more than just pleasurable, more than just horizon expanding. This record will bring the listener to a higher level of consciousness, that peace and happiness are attainable through bathing in its sounds...LOL!!! Really though, I had a great time making this record and I hope listeners enjoy it."
