TVotR - Dear Science

Up until now, TVotR has been one of those bands I've admired way more than actually listened to. That all changes with "Dear Science" - Pitchfork's current album of the year and easily the most interesting music I've heard in awhile. From the afrofunk horns to the 80's synths, this is a rock album that's weird in all the right ways, always pleading for more of your attention and consciously defying your expectations. These guys sound like no one else now or before, singular in a time when that's almost impossible. I'm not ready to say "album of the year" after a few spins through, but fuck me if I won't still be pounding this 4 months from now.
