WATCH IT: TV On The Radio "Nine Types Of Light" (various dir.)

A video for each track off new album Nine Types Of Light, connected together and available online as a sort of TV On The Radio movie. Each clip boasts a different director with TVOTR singer Tunde Adebimpe serving as an executive director of sorts, stitching them together with connective tissue that includes clips with seemingly random NY'ers. Adebimpe and TVOTR were directly involved in several of the videos, collaborating with a director pools that veered from friends to filmmakers they admired.
