Changing the Medium

Nothing overly new here today.  I'm sure most of you have heard of TV on the Radio.  They're Brooklyn's finest in genre-crossing indie rock.  I've been following this band for years and each album, in addition to being a brilliant piece of work, also astounds me for its progression and uniqueness from the previous.
On that note, while their latest, Nine Types of Light, was released almost 6 months ago, I'm really just getting to it now and am once again blown away by the creativity and progression of this band.  I've absolutely fallen in love with their first single, strangely titled "Second Song," and the cute, albeit strange little wax tribal man in the video.  The whole song builds up slow, but absolutely explodes into such an uplifting feeling around 1:30.  The song is also perfectly paired with such an interesting and visually stunning video.
