I’m two days late behind the hype, as usual, since I’m too late for everything. But yes, Lotus Flower is on! I haven’t heard the whole album yet– but hopefully it has a wider range than this song. Don’t get me wrong though, I love this track but not so much as I hero-worshiped Idioteque. I guess I’m a little biased when it comes to their techno/ambient style or whatever music that they do (I’m inclined to call it Trip-Hop infused with Rock but that’s just me).
Snap reactions on the video: Thom Yorke awkwardly dancing. It was almost comically done but the cinematography and the angles were done impeccably it was so hard to take it as anything else — maybe a bit hypnotizing at times but then it was just Thom Yorke dancing, nothing more.
Hah, anyway, I should already get a copy of the album. I dunno, will it be available in the Philippines? D: To those who have listened to the album already, how was it?
When it comes to appreciating music, I’ve always been keen on two separate elements: the lyrics and the tiny details that you can hear on the track. For me, these are separate entities that should be appreciated by itself– or if I’m lucky, together. This is why Radiohead has been one of the few great music stumbles of my life (this and Youjeen).
Radiohead is back with their new record, The King of Limbs, which they are dubbing as the world’s first (perhaps, their words not mine) Newspaper album. Album includes two clear 10″ vinyl records in a purpose-built record sleeve, a CD, large sheets of newspaper artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-color piece of oxo-degradable plastic to hold it all together. One lucky owner of the digital version of The King Of Limbs, purchased from this website, will receive a signed 2 track 12″ vinyl. For more information please go here.
I’m excited for this album; I might be reading too much from this but I love how the guys are still advocating for the benefit of the environment (re: degradable plastic) I hope it’ll be available here in the Philippines because I really can’t afford to pre-order now (so much for maxing out my dad’s credit card for the iTouch argh).
