by Darren DeVivo

Seeds
TV on the Radio
Harvest Records



TV On The Radio, Brooklyn's highly regarded art rockers, are back.

Tunde Adebimpe, Jaleel Bunton, Kyp Malone and David Andrew Sitek are harvesting new life, in the form of an album called Seeds. It's the sixth full-length album from TVOTR (counting the demo collection OK Calculator), and their first following the death of bassist Gerard Smith in 2011.

Spoon has been consistently churning out solid albums ever since its 1996 debut Telephono, and now the Austin-based band has released its eighth full-length album, They Want My Soul. The new songs see the band expanding its sound while still maintaining its unique style of smart and witty indie rock.

Nine Stacks in Search of a Show

by Rich Conaty

I won't whine about all the birthdays, although there are nine being celebrated on tonight's "Big Broadcast." The toughest part, especially when the nonet includes such major talents as Hoagy Carmichael, Tommy Dorsey and Coleman Hawkins, is getting it all to fit into four hours. The nine stacks represent Carmichael to Cecil Scott, and there are twenty more 78s that have to be added. So, it'll be another fruitcake dense program. But I'm not whining!

The Bottomless Pit With Marshall Crenshaw For November 15

by Marshall Crenshaw
Danelectro

On "The Bottomless Pit" over the years, I've had a recurring feature segment called "A Salute To the Fender Stratocaster." I've also done a salute to the Fender Jazzmaster and two weeks worth of saluting the Hammond B-3 organ. I did a Gretsch guitar night, an all-Mosrite show, and possibly my favorite, a salute to the Vox Continental organ.

In this vein, tonight at 10 will be an "All-Danelectro Edition" of "The Bottomless Pit." Like White Castle hamburgers, Danelectro instruments are cheaply made, cheaply bought, but uniquely effective—and uniquely American.
