TV Loves You Back is the fourth studio album by American alternative hip hop group Restiform Bodies. It was released on Anticon in 2008.

Release[edit]

Months before Restiform Bodies released TV Loves You Back, the song "Bobby Trendy Addendum" had become available digitally via Impose Magazine.[6]

Their labelmate Tobacco of Black Moth Super Rainbow remixed "Panic Shopper," a song from the album.[7]

Reception[edit]

Ande Pareti of Soundchek Magazine wrote, "Each song on TV Loves You Back is a carefully concocted trip, and listening to the album in its entirety is delightful substance abuse."[3] The album was described by Vish Khanna of Exclaim! as "the perfectly imperfect soundtrack to an information overloaded yet, ironically, attention deficit addled culture."[4]
