Maximum Balloon unleashes debut album stream

Dave Sitek is now streaming Maximum Balloon’s self titled album over at Myspace. At last. Songs have been leaking from that record like nobody’s business.

TV on the Radio’s main writer has been busy with this one, recruiting some very high end personnel for collaborations, including bandmates Kyp Malone and Tunde Adebimpe, Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ Karen O and Little Dragon’s Yukimi Nagano.

So far this has quite a similar sound to TVOTR’s much adored Dear Science, which was debatably the best album of 2008. But it is much more dancy and even more electronic. This is particularly true when you listen to his track he did with Adebimpe.

Good old Dave and Tunde.
