TV On The Radio – Nine Types of Light

Andrew S says: “Not sure if you have seen this, but it struck me immediately as Poopworthy. TV on the Radio’s hour-long “film,” basically a music video of their new album in its entirety. Pretty f*cking cool.”

“Nine Types of Light is as much an album as it is a movie by TV on the Radio. The movie is meant to be a visual re-imagining of the record, and includes a music video for every song on the album. The band personally asked their friends and the filmmakers they admired to help direct the music videos. Tunde Adebimpe, the director for the full Nine Types of Light movie, storybooked the music videos together with interviews from local New Yorkers on various topics, including dreams, love, fame and the future.”
