Musical Pairings: TV on the Radio and White Beans with Fresh Herbs

This dinner constituted a different take on a traditional TV dinner. We prepared these beans on a Wednesday evening, aiming to be finished in the kitchen with time to settle in for Top Chef (hint: if you’re on the West Coast, you can watch new episodes on Bravo HD two hours prior to the usual airing). As a result, we didn’t really listen to music during preparation or consumption. However, it seems somewhat fitting to recommend either of these two stunning albums by TV on the Radio: Return to Cookie Mountain or Dear Science. Both albums are as eclectic, genre-defying and sonically intense as Beck’s Odelay, but with a little less soul and a little more rhythm. I’m pretty sure both albums would find comfortable places in my top 25 albums of the past decade.
