Watch: TV On The Radio on a magic carpet ride in 'Caffeinated Consciousness'
TV On The Radio want to take you on a magic carpet ride.
In their latest music video, the Brooklyn rockers take at least some advantage of a green screen and the Dancing Guy from your local cable access late-night sked and jumble it up with a bunch of their friends, one of whom is a video editor with a free weekend. "Caffeinate Consciousness" is mostly the former and barely the latter; it plays like an inside joke grafted in the early '90s.
But the dude at 0:37 is pretty much my favorite thing ever.
The track's from "Nine Types of Light," out earlier this year. Two of those tracks have gotten a remix breakdown for iTunes, including the aforementioned spazz fest and "Will Do." Mylo and Das Racist have at 'em, check out samples here.
