TV on the Radio: Treasure Island Music Festival

TV on the Radio has a truly arresting presence on stage - mostly because there's so many of them.  When the horns are going, they're a bit reminiscent of a high school marching band, but when they break into songs like "Wolf Like Me," all the order descends into beautiful mayhem and you can't help but get swept away.  The New York-based group proclaimed that they had "a lot to celebrate."  Not only did their much-anticipated album Dear Science hit iTunes last Tuesday, it was bassist Gerard Smith's birthday.  They treated with a few from their new album, including the catchy "Golden Age," which is more funk and pop than anything they've done before - and is complete with their signature horns.   In fact, perhaps as a homage to the SF fog, the group let out a few elongated horn chords over the island.
