Resitform Bodies - Tv Loves You Back [Anticon - 2008]

TV loves you back is the long awaited second full-length from Oakland based 3 piece who offer up a very distinctive musically mix of hip-hop, 80s pop & post punk synth throb with vocalist Passage raping over the top with often consumer poking and surreal lyric craft.

Things start off in fine (if typical) style with  Black Friday that bounds in with throbbing and bouncing harmonic 80s synth  riff and understated hip-hop beats, with Vocalist passage switching  back & forth with rap banter and normal sung chorus, with  one or two more speedy electro hip hop moments too. And really the rest of the album runs in similar manner and pace through-out with throbbing 80s synth pattens mixing with raping and sang vocals, with beat matter going from hip-hop, gligty electro and synth pop like. Its enjoyable, vibrate and quirky through-out but I just wished theyd tried to move there sound into other territory as at times it rather feels by numbers. With only the synth ballard starter of Amerciscan and its later lite funk gitar edge really stepping outside of the box. But if you take it as it is there are some great moments here like; the early released mp3 track  Bobby Trendy Addendum juddering glichty beat meets electro synth singe and its memorable chorus, or the tight synth melodics of Opulent soul with its almost choir tinged vocals and hymn like melodies gone 80s synth vibe


This album comes as one most awaited releasers on the label and for that reason it's some what underwhelming and as a whole feels too safe through it is enjoyable, consistent and memorable through-out .
