Over at Pitchfork, DJ, producer extraordinaire (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Liars) and white dude in TV on the Radio Dave Sitek credits Pharoah Sanders for the good, hard mind blowing he got as a teenager on his way to a landscaping job.

His bandmate Kyp Malone has been a vocal fan of the jazz visionary as well.

Thinking back, there really is a good bit of skronky Pharoah influence in "Staring at the Sun," huh?
