TV on the Radio haven’t had it easy lately with the illness of bassist Gerard Smith, but it seems things are looking up with a triumphant live return at SXSW including previews of some new tracks.

The band has offered the song “Caffeinated Consciousness” as a free download, and fans have latched on immediately to place it among older tracks on their weekly chart: 4,402 users scrobbled it 9,547 times in one week. New single “Will Do” is also at #7 on their weekly chart, suggesting that Nine Types of Light could continue the pattern started by their previous two albums, and enter the charts above Dear Science, which debuted at #12 on the Billboard 200 in September 2008.

With an average of over seven scrobbles for the song from each of its listeners, the challenge for the new tracks will be creating something that fans return to again and again.
