I'd love to be in the band meeting when TV on the Radio frontman, Tunde Adebimpe, brings up the idea of making a race car themed music video starring a hallucinating Paul Rubens (Pee Wee Herman) and 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Karen Gillan. Somehow, the brilliantly bizarre idea met open arms...

Watch: Julian Casablancas + The Voidz Play Fallon, It's Weird.

I just don't know what to do with the new album from Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. Tyranny is so strange, from a different universe almost.
