TV on the Radio have recently been embroiled in solo projects, but are now regrouping to start work on a new album. They've started throwing ideas down, and have been collaborating even though DaveSitek is in L.A. and the rest of the band is in Brooklyn. They're using the Internet as a means to share work and exchange audio tracks.
The band has been using the file sharing site YouSendIt to share huge audio files.
"TV on the Radio has used this a lot because they're in Brooklyn and I'm in L.A. We go back and forth with songs, sending each other entire Pro-Tools files. If you get a fancy-pants membership you can send some pretty big files," said DaveSitek when speaking with Rolling Stone. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/;kw=[13193,130994]
It's the unspoken hero of music right now and allows for a lot of high-quality collaborations. It's so nerdy that no one really talks about it, but the remix world, for instance, definitely hinges on a site likeYouSendIt."
