Quickie Album Reviews - TV On The Radio, Two Sheds, The Western States Motel

TV On The Radio - Return To Cookie Mountain - 4AD Records
With a who's-who guest list of indie rock stars in tow, the Brooklyn band unleash their second full-length on the world. While it may not contain any instant "singles" like the first, it is a more fullfilling experience in it's entirety. Strange, but swingin', TV On The Radio are still making music unlike anyone else out there. - Gabriel Burger

Two Sheds - Strange Ammunition - UnderAcloud Records
This wife/husband led act from Sacramento spin haunting portentous lullabies with surprising range and variety. A hard candy surprise -- with a hidden track cover of The Talking Heads’ Psycho Killer that steals hearts. - Joe Fielder

The Western States Motel - The Western States Motel - Firebird Field Recordings
Delicate, charming, summer pop music. Maybe not in quite the same epic compositional weight class as The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, but with a heart as similarly big as all outdoors. - Joe Fielder
