ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — When a pair of Santa Fe cult filmmakers met musician Kyp Malone working in a San Francisco cafe in 2000, they never dreamed the friendship would culminate in a Grammy nomination.
Now a member of the indie rock band TV on the Radio, Malone called his old friends Jon Moritsugu and Amy Davis and asked them to direct a video for the song “No Future Shock” from the band’s latest release “Nine Types of Light.”
The Brooklyn-based band’s music spans everything from post-punk to electro, from free jazz to soul music. It was nominated for long-form video for an hourlong piece featuring every song on the album.
The Grammy nod puts them in competition with such pop luminaries as Beyoncé, A Tribe Called Quest, Foo Fighters and Kings of Leon.
