“I’m a happy idiot, waving at cars,” Tunde Adebimpe croons on TV on the Radio’s upcoming album, Seeds. “I’m going to bang my head to the wall till I feel nothing at all.” You can’t blame him for being in a daze after everything his group has been through in the past few years. The Brooklyn indie rockers are still recovering from the death of bassist Gerard Smith even as the band continues to be celebrated from coast to coast. TV on the Radio have collaborated with many of their idols, including Trent Reznor and David Bowie, and singer-guitarist Kyp Malone has worked with such disparate musicians as the folkie Jolie Holland and the shape-shifting, nomadic Malian guitar army Tinariwen. Adebimpe’s and Malone’s own influences are all over the literal and figurative map, seamlessly roaming from punk and funk to the purest of pop. Also at the Mayan, Thursday, October 23.
