TV On the Radio to Become
TV On the Radio on Interscope


Indie bands grow up fast these days. It seems like just yesterday that I heard TV On the Radio for the first time on Radio K, or heard the cool people working at the coffee shop playing their music.

They were up and coming, they hadn't written a song about the President (Dry Drunk Emperor), and they most definitely weren't on a recording label that was one step removed from the corporate boheometh A&M Records. But earlier this week, Pitchfork announced that they'd heard that the group was making the move from Touch and Go Records to Interscope.

Outside of the U.S., they'll stay on 4AD Records, their current European home away from home. There's also talk of a name for the upcoming release: the web rumor mill has dubbed it Return To Cookie Mountain as the official unoffical name.

And there's a track list floating around, which originally was put out into the web stream of consciousness by the band through their Young Liars blog. They posted it last June , and the song has remained the same since then:

TV On the Radio: Track List
01 Playhouses
02 I Was a Lover
03 Province
04 Snakes + Martyrs
05 Wolf Like Me
06 Tonight
07 Dirty Whirlwind
08 A Method
09 Let the Devil In
10 Blues From Down Here
11 Wash the Day Away

So is it the right track list? Who knows! The band gave it out, but who knows how much it could have changed since then. The album was originally rumored to be out last fall, and here it is March of 2006 and we don't have it yet. They could have changed song names, arrangements, or even recorded more new songs by now.

They're also touring sporadically over the next few months in a strange weaving of tour dates that never seem to stray too far from any coast (New York, Baton Rouge, San Diego, Seattle). What's the matter boys, afraid of the locals when you get away from the coast? They'll let their good friends and 4AD labelmates Celebration open up for about half the dates. They'll also play a show with with Bloc Party in Tempe, Arizona.
