Seeds is TV On The Radio's sixth album and the first since the band's bassist, Gerard Smith, died in 2011. In spite of geographical distance — the group is now split between L.A. and New York — and the profound loss of a collaborator and friend, TV On The Radio sounds tight and focused. The songs on Seeds are punchy, pleasurable, searing and concise.
