IN STORE PERFORMANCE:

HIGGINS WATERPROOF BLACK MAGIC BAND

FEATURING TV ON THE RADIO'S Tunde Adebimpe

3 p.m. April 27 at the Downtown Portland Store: 1313 W Burnside

After releasing the one-off track "Mercy" this summer, TV on the Radio are slowly starting to make some noise following a relatively quiet period. Frontman Tunde Adebimpe stayed busy by recording the self-titled debut EP for his side project Higgins Waterproof Black Magic Band.

The first taste of that album is "The Blast, the Bloom," a brooding track that finds Adebimpe singing over fewer electronic sounds than TVOTR, with a menacing bass groove and some far-out guitar work that accentuates his stark vocals. The band released the EP on October 1 via their own label, ZNA Records, available only on vinyl.

In addition to Adebimpe, the band's members are Ryan Sawyer (Lone Wolf and Cub), Josh Werner (Lee "Scratch" Perry, CocoRosie), and Alex Holden (Big Numbers).
