Not sure if this has been posted yet (but I'm excited):
"Hail to the Thief" .... the last time I heard that was on signs during Bush's inauguaration parade.
I wonder what it will sound like? I for one hope it's something completely new, instead of a safe retread to where they've been before. Maybe a more organic Kid A? Harder and noisy would be good, though I'm not sure if their producer could do it right. Maybe straight acoustic...that could be really interesting. Maybe a whole album of songs in the vein of The Pyramid Song? If they do go back into the electronics, I hope they steer away from straight Chemical Brothers-ripoff style techno, and go more towards icy synths and quiet soundscapes. Like Pink Floyd meets Joy Division.
Yes Finally !! Now we only need SACDs of Radiohead! I heard most of the songs, recorded live. Sit up stand, 2+2-5 is quite rockish. The orther songs are quite mellow, wolf at the door is really good.
The only question really is how many formats I'll be needing to buy this on. I'm kind of hoping there isn't an SACD - despite what I said in the other thread I've a distinct feeling that would mean I'd shell out for a player...
I fully expect Radiohead to stay with the electronic stuff. They seem really dedicated to that. It remains to be seen exactly what they do with it, though.
awesome news! no matter what i'm sure i'll buy this sound unseen. btw ike, what songs remind you of techno style ripoffs? np: jane's addiction
Glorious np: 24 Hour Party People Soundtrack
heh! i guess i should have said "sound unheard". ya know...sorta a spin on the "sight unseen" thing we use when you buy a dvd you haven't seen. hello? is this thing on? :b
What I've read is a cross between Kid-A and OK Computer. Don't know if that's just internet rumor, but it sounds good to me. Cant wait.
From the tracks I've heard from the Spain concerts from last year that'd be a good description, although I think they learn a bit more heavily to the guitar driven sound of OK Computer. I'm looking forward to hearing the studio versions of these songs.
Am I wrong in my thinking that Radiohead use a lot of traditional instruments to create many of their "electronic" sounds? I don't know why but I was under the impression they somewhat subscribed to the Tom Morello method of emulating electronic sounds.
Most of it is done with analogue (especially modular) synths. They also used an ondes martenot extensivley on Kid A, which is a sort of cross between an electric keyboard and a theremin that was intended for orchestral use. In some ways they are looking back 30 years or so to a more "organic" approach to electronic music with the gear they use.
I have heard live versions of almost all these songs. My favorite has to be Wolf at the Door, and I cannot wait to hear a studio version of it. A very creey creepy song, sung so amazingly on the live version I heard. Myxmatosis is really cool sounding, great guitar in it. 2+2=5 is another fav of mine so far. I cannot wait. I pray that this is a DVD-A though...as I dont think I will have the money for a SACD player by then. But this coupled with Dark Side of the Moon are enough to make me starve for a bit to get it. And now for you spoiler junkies...the lyrics for wolf at the door!drag him out the window dragging out your dead singing i miss you snakes and ladders flip the lid out pops the cracker smacks you in the head knifes you in the neck kicks you in the teeth steel toe caps takes all your credit cards get up get the gunge get the eggs get the flan in the face the flan in the face the flan in the face dance you fucker dance you fucker don't you dare don't you dare don't you flan in the face take it with the love is given take it with a pinch of salt take it to the taxman let me back let me back i promise to be good don't look in the mirror at the face you don't recognize help me call the doctor put me inside put me inside put me inside put me inside put me inside i keep the wolf from the door but he calls me up calls me on the phone tells me all the ways that he's gonna mess me up steal all my children if i don't pay the ransom but i'll never see him again if i squeal to the cops walking like a giant crane and with my x ray eyes i strip you naked in a tight little world and are you on the list? stepford wives who are we to complain? investments and dealers investments and dealers cold wives and mistresses. cold wives and sunday papers. city boys in 1st class don't know we're born just know someone else is gonna come and clean it up born and raised for the job oh I wish you'd get up go over and turn this tape off. i keep the wolf from the door but he calls me up calls me on the phone tells me all the ways that hes gonna mess me up steal all my children if i don't pay the ransom but i'll never see him again if i squeal to the cops
Can you believe I haven't gotten around to picking up Amnesiac and the live album yet? I gotta get my ass to a record store. Hopefully I'll have time today... I was initially put off by Kid A, but I've gotten used to it. I still don't like it nearly as much as The Bends and the brilliant OK Computer, but now I'm very curious to hear what they've done after Kid A.
IMO, the Live Ep is worth buying just for the song "True Love Waits." Everything else after that was just a bonus.
I hope its a dvd A or sacd, and then all the other albums as well. Imagine " How to disapear completly" in 5.1!!!!
"New Radiohead Album Floods The Internet" on Billboard.com I wonder if they really just feel "bemused" about this. I sure wouldn't be. LJ
