The Inspiration

TV on the Radio is an all-around awesome band, whose electro-rock makes me think of college dance parties, and the sea of fist-pumpers that flooded Grant Park at Lollapalooza a few years ago. Their album Nine Types of Light closes with a song called "Caffeinated Consciousness", while Return to Cookie Mountain was the title of their excellent 2006 release—hence the double inspiration behind these heavenly caffeinated treats!
