INHERENT VICE // dir: Paul Thomas Anderson (trailer one)

It’s not about music per se, but it does feature a score by Jonny Greenwood, narration by Joanna Newsom, and direction by the best filmmaker alive, so why not take a couple of minutes and go batshit over the first trailer for Paul Thomas Anderson's adaptation of Thomas Pynchon's “Inherent Vice”

"Morning Mr. Magpie" by Radiohead // Live on Austin City Limits (2012)

The PBS series, "Austin City Limits" will soon return with a series of excellent performances from a wide variety of bands, and included in this years line-up is a series performance by Radiohead. Now, everyone should love a good shot at seeing Radiohead do what they do best in lovely hi-def video shot by the always reliable team over at ACL, so here is a performance of “Morning Mr. Magpie” featuring Thom’s new pony. 

* The Radiohead episode of ACL debuts on October 6th. 

Fake Plastic Trees ft CoMa

"Fake Plastic Trees (Radiohead Cover)" by Stumbleine (feat. CoMa) // The Night Before EP (2012)

Stumbleine have a very particular sound - fractured beats and pretty, hushed vocals over warped samples and ethereal soundscapes - so it’s fairly safe to say that they would have an interesting DNA to be covering Radiohead. “Interesting” is underselling it though, as they’ve taken a classic like “Fake Plastic Trees” and spun it around into a dreamy, sci-fi lullaby that is both similar enough to the original as to not be lost completely while also cutting itself a new path that is absolutely enchanting. It’s not always easy to cover one of the most respected bands in the world, but here Stumbleine handle it with absolute grace. Gorgeous and a must listen for fans of both bands.

School of Seven Bells - Subterranean Homesick Alien

"Subterranean Homesick Alien" by School of Seven Bells // Musik Express Tribute to OK Computer (2012)

For the 15th anniversary of the release of the groundbreaking album, OK Computer, German magazine Musik Express have compiled a special tribute album by gathering artists to cover each track. The tribute features contributions from Hooray for Earth, Ada, Diagrams, Austra, School of Seven Bells, and many more. Here is a taster of “Subterranean Homesick Alien” as performed by electro shoegazers School of Seven Bells. It’s a hazy dream pop take on the original which swaps out live drums for a skittish beat and ethereal synths. Highly recommended. 

Everything In Its Right Place (One I Love)

"The One I Love / Everything In It’s Right Place" by Radiohead // Live in Japan (10.5.08)

It’s a slow weekend and I felt like breaking into some of the old tracks that I hadn’t listened to in a while. While doing so, I stumbled across this soundboard recording of Radiohead mixing R.E.M.s “The One I Love” with “Everything in it’s Right Place” and it certainly has been a few years since I laid back and fell in love with this, so why not share it on the main page until I discover something fresh and new to share.

* Interesting side note: Radiohead being my favorite band, the first time I ever saw them live was while they were opening for R.E.M.

RADIOHEAD heading back into studio!
Thom Yorke is saying that the band is heading back into the studio in December to start work on new music. Hot damn. I love it when they have quick turnaround between albums. He also had this to say:

"It would be fun to have them ready when we go to play next year. I don’t know how we would release them. It would be nice to make it all part of the flow and just enjoy it – not think about it too much.”
