Radiohead | Burn the Witch

Paranoid Radiohead is the Radiohead I love best. Especially when the band interprets societal convergence as mob rule, like they do in their latest song, “Burn the Witch”. Mob rule in the face of complacency. You get these wonderfully dark fairy-tale-turned nightmare sequences of witch-burning and people losing all sense: “Stay in the shadows /…

RADIOHEAD | Live on The Colbert Report

Radiohead ripped it up on The Colbert Report on Monday night, and despite the band’s aversion to sit-down interviews there were a number of highlights beyond the music. Colbert suggested the night would be a “mind-blowing evening for music nerds”. He joked that “in the event any Radiohead-heads totally lose their shit” he’d have a…

RADIOHEAD | Remixes, Pt. III

Thanks to Radiohead’s website Dead Air Space there’s another widget for issue No. 3 in the band’s remix series, in the shops on August 1st (August 9th in the USA & Canada). The remixes are from Radiohead’s latest release “The King of Limbs”. This third series contains remixes from Four Tet, Lone and Pearson Sound.…

THOM YORKE | A May Playlist

Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke loves to push music he likes. Whether it’s playing surprise DJ shows at the Low End Theory in Los Angeles with pal Flying Lotus, or just posting playlists at Radiohead’s ‘Dead Air Space’ website. Spreading the love is a good thing among musicians. I can respect that. So, here’s the latest…

RADIOHEAD | Supercollider/The Butcher

Radiohead is celebrating this Record Store Day with the release of a limited-edition two-track 12-inch vinyl record. Maybe there’s something to the fact both these songs, “Supercollider” and “The Butcher” are about taking things apart — one in the most scientific way possible, and the other by hacking with a cleaver. It fits the motif…

RADIOHEAD | The King of Limbs

By David D. Robbins Jr. | Their Bated Breath Radiohead “The King of Limbs” Illustration by David D. Robbins Jr. (Composite uses photos, public domain images) I read the early review of Radiohead’s “The King of Limbs” in the UK Guardian, which said the album wasn’t breaking any new ground. Well, that’s not a great…

RADIOHEAD | ‘Lotus Flower’ Video

Well, let the zillion-music blog debating begin. I’ve already read a handful of nonsense reviews proclaiming this track is terrible or self-indulgent, with Thom Yorke dancing spastically in front of a camera in black and white. Frankly, I love both the video and the music. This is more in the style of “Kid A” and…

RADIOHEAD | The King of Limbs

It’s almost as if Radiohead timed this release just in time to rescue us from the post-Grammy Award show depression. Whew. Thanks boys. The Oxford, England band are going to release a new full-length record entitled, “The King of Limbs”. How soon you ask? Five days. February 19th. Prepare for an internet frenzy. Read more…

A REMIX | Radiohead ‘Kid A’

A REMIX: Admittedly, I’m one of those people that hears the word “remix” and thinks, “Okay, a good song turned into a bad Ibiza club track.” It stands to reason, because people don’t try to remix bad songs. They take a good one and tinker with it. But I still try to give remixes a…
