Happy, happy, joy, joy! We have another TV On The Radio poster designed by lead singer Tunde Adebimpe to give away to a randomly selected US-based LAEM subscriber who leaves a comment under this post telling us about their TVOTR obsession.

I feel bad posting here, because I’m the only one, I guess I like to talk about TVOTR though, and if anyone will listen, I’ve probably got quite a bit to say. I remember when Return to Cookie Mountain came out. I went to Greywhale, my local record store and searched for a copy. I liked to think of myself as self sufficient enough to find an album on my own, but after about 25 minutes of futile searching, I realized that either I was an imbecile, or that I was going about things all wrong. I asked the lady behind the counter if she thought she might be able to help me locate the CD, and sure enough it was sold out, sold out on compact disc that is. I was so desperate to hear it that I thew down the extra 10 dollars and bought the vinyl version (which has turned out to be a fair investment, seeing as its now somewhat of a collectors item) and made a trip home to Ma and Pa’s to dig out the old record player. I played it through twice, both records, and fell in love again.
