TV on the Radio – “Happy Idiot”

Yesterday, TV on the Radio debuted “Happy Idiot”,  the first track from their forthcoming album Seeds, which is being released in November.  Even though the band released a couple of new songs last year (“Mercy” and “Million Miles”) neither of those songs will appear on the new record, their first album since 2011.

Bad Billboard: The Expendables 3

I haven’t written a good, honest rant on the site in awhile.  I hope you don’t think that it’s because nothing has annoyed me.  I’ve just really been too busy to get my thoughts together and type them out, but something was bugging me and I just had to post it here!
