It's probably all over the 'net, but stereogum have a selection of mp3's and flash from radiohead's webcast last friday. Lots of good stuff including a cover of The Smiths and Joy Division.

Thumbs Down!

I'd really be interested if you guys notice the step-up that should be apparent listening to the cd, or or if the mix sounds different on vinyl (as often seems the case)

I love this album and will at least get it on cd when I can (the vinyl tempts me, but I want to hear some feedback).

Oh yes oh yes ohyes, it's here, it's here!!!

Arrived about 10 minutes ago and it is absolutely gorgeous. It has a very thick, heavy card outer box with "RADIOHEAD" on one side and "IN RAINBOWS" on the other, that you slide the actual boxset out of. The outer box is covered in black and white artwork of what looks like a carpark at first glance and in the bottom left hand corner has hand drawn figures of children and adults running away from something.

The actual boxset has the familiar In Rainbows artwork on it's front cover. It opens up like some gloriously weighty tome to reveal a 45 record sized book of artwork (more of the warm, colourful liquid splashes, it looks almost like the cover of Metallica's Load album, though not, I hope, made using blood and cum). Then there's the lyrics booklet, half the length of the boxset and woven into the middle it's a godsend for those of us who must have the exact right lyrics for a band's songs. The two cds - In Rainbows itself and the bonus tracks, fans will be pleased to know "Bangers and Mash" is on there as is "4 Minute Warning".

I'm going to get a coffee and give the CD's a spin (Tape I'll let you know about the vinyl once I fix my player) and cross my fingers it's full lossless audio on there.

To me this is easily worth 40 quid, hell I'd happily pay twice that for this because it's clear a lot of care went into something that is, essentially, packaging. Oh but what packaging!!!!

So it's all imported at 320kbps and the sound is noticeably richer, very nice, I even went and bought some expensive headphones for my ipod and it sounds delicious running through those. I'm off round a friends house tonight to listen to the vinyl version and really looking forward to it.

I can't remember, did you order the boxset Nordling? It is very very nice, if you're a major radiohead fan like me then it really is worth it. The sound quality really pulls out all those little hidden rhythms and melodies, Videotape is jawdropping heard this way, there's drums running right the way through it on the very edge of your hearing, magnificent.

I didn't order it. I paid like $4 for the download, but I'm so strapped for cash right now. I'll have to grab it if and when it comes to the States. What I really want to hear is that full sound on "All I Need."

Well, I'm listening to the second CD now, and the songs are wonderful, but I understand why they weren't released with the first batch earlier. They're more quiet and contemplative (except for "Bangers and Mash").

I love this band.

yes, i got the box set with the 2nd CD. i won't bother addressing MK 1 & 2, since they aren't real songs.

Down Is The New Up is fantastic, as good as anything on the main CD. I also like Last Flowers a lot. overall though, the 2nd CD songs are much mellower and i think require a bit more time and effort to get into. i also think the track order isn't the best (Last Flowers should have been at the end, and the other tracks could flow better) so it seemed a bit slapped together order-wise. but i've only listened to it a couple times, so i need more time to really digest those 2nd CD songs.

I really like "4 Minute Warning" as the album ender, though. Although "Videotape" would have been a great ender too, but I like how "MK 1" seques from it into "Down Is The New Up."

Scotch Mist is now available here


You know, after living with this album for three months it has definitely grown on me. While still not up to the levels of The Bends or OK Computer, it's approaching Kid A standard of goodness.

"weird fishes" is like my favorite song in the world right now.

It does creep up on you, doesn't it? I listened to it pretty intensely for the first few days and about half way through the second day of having it, it clicked into place. It's not like it's impenetrable on first listen at all though, it just takes time for the patterns to sync up in one's head I think.

Weisrdly enough I just put this on to listen to as you posted.
Around 2m42s on 15 Steps is where it really kicks in, all the disparate elements shift into alignment for about 30 seconds and the song takes off. Then obviously Bodysnatchers kicks it up another notch with Nude shifting down gears and Weird Fishes going off on it's own change middle way through. It's a perfectly sequenced album, ending with Videotape is the icing on the cake.

Sans label, Radiohead revels in newfound freedom
By JAKE COYLE, AP Entertainment Writer
Wed May 28, 12:51 AM ET

WASHINGTON - The breakthrough for Radiohead on "Reckoner" — a song that underwent multiple incarnations on its way to "In Rainbows" — came by way of what Jonny Greenwood calls a "big percussion fest."

Recording in an English country house, all five members of the group make a loud, cathartic racket — a habit-busting trick the band has practiced since primary school, says bassist Colin Greenwood.

"And I'm happy to say that success hasn't changed us at all," joked Jonny Greenwood, who would rather leave the percussion to Phil Selway's drums and Thom Yorke's rhythm guitar.

Whether through the primal release of a "big percussion fest" or by severing ties with its record label, Radiohead is giving the distinct impression of a band that has exorcised something.

Since self-releasing "In Rainbows" as a pay-what-you-want digital download last fall, Radiohead has moved quickly with the tilt of innovation. They surprised fans with intimate webcasts; they offered one track, "Nude," in stripped down audio pieces for anyone to remix; they held a surprise concert so crowded that police insisted they move along.

On their seventh album, particularly on songs like the falsetto-rich R&B ballad "House of Cards" and the languorous "Nude," the music reflects the same sense of freedom. The prevailing tone of the new material is — gasp! — a melodic warmth.

And this is a drastic change for what many consider the gloomiest band on the planet.

Meet the born-again Radiohead.

In a recent two-part interview with the band — first with the Greenwood brothers and Selway, second with Yorke and guitarist Ed O'Brien — a lightness was unmistakable. Much funnier than you'd expect, the quintet bemusedly contemplate wearing Speedos while shuffling into a Washington, D.C. hotel room.

They had just performed in nearby Virginia, where torrential rain caused flooding and enormous traffic jams around the Nissan Pavilion. In the apocalyptic downpour, Radiohead functioned as a hearth, exuding their newfound glow.

Five shows into the first leg of their North America tour, they played confidently. At one point, Yorke urged the soaked crowd to "cuddle," an unthinkable prospect for a Radiohead concert.

Tuneful beauty has always been part of Radiohead songs (like the "rain down" climax in "Paranoid Android"), but such moments have seldom been allowed to linger. Asked the origins of the new mood, Yorke is as clueless as anyone.

"I don't know where it came from, to be honest," said the 39-year-old singer, laughing heartily. "I think (`In Rainbows') has its moments of fraught tension, like `Bodysnatchers' obviously. But it ends up in a good space. It starts off pretty anxious, but the end of `All I Need,' by that point, everything is like, `Ahhh' — getting it out of your system."

When the band completed 2003's "Hail to the Thief," they essentially got what O'Brien calls the "machinery" of the music industry out of their system. Their six-album deal with EMI Music Group expired and they declined all suitors for a new deal.

The band was at a crossroads and low on energy. They were disappointed by "Hail to the Thief," which they felt was unfinished.

"What was great about `Kid A' was that it heralded a new period and it meant we went off in some cool new places," said O'Brien, 40. "But the downside was that in the whole period up until the end of `Hail to the Thief,' we picked up some nasty habits."

The band, of whom all but O'Brien still live in their hometown of Oxford, had progressed steadily into more experimental territory after their 1993 debut "Pablo Honey" and the classic guitar rock follow-up, 1995's "The Bends." The unparalleled "OK Computer" (1997) elevated them to worldwide fame, but didn't tame them. 2000's "Kid A" and its companion piece "Amnesiac" followed.

The outwardly political "Hail to the Thief," something of a return to guitar-based rockers, was the first sign that Radiohead's path had become confused. Afterward, the band members occupied themselves with their families. Yorke released a solo album, "The Eraser" in 2006.

"We were going along in a certain trajectory and then suddenly with `Hail to the Thief,' it was: we can't carry along in that way anymore," said Yorke. "To me the hardest thing was finding a reason to carry on."

As unified as "In Rainbows" sounds, it took years to complete. The band began recording it with producer Mark Stent, the first time in years they didn't work with Nigel Godrich.

The attempt was futile and Radiohead set out on tour to help bring the new songs into shape. When they returned to the studio, they went back to Godrich, considered the unofficial sixth member because of his importance in helping refine the group's sound. (Colin calls his wealth of gear "like Aladdin's cave.")

"The key thing in actually propelling it forward was Nigel coming back into the process," said Selway, 41. "The reality when we got in there was it still wasn't good enough. We really had to raise our standards quite a lot."

Typically, songs begin with Yorke writing something on piano or guitar with vocals and fleshing it out with the multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood. Then the band works together to find the right arrangement, a process that can be tortuous. "Videotape" underwent, Yorke jokes, hundreds of versions before finding the right minimalist sound.

"We still sometimes get overawed by the songs," said Greenwood. "We'll get very attached to a song as an idea in its very basic form, but we also know we can't really leave it like that. So that's what we spend our time talking about and planning and thinking about. Thom will sit and play `Pyramid Song' on piano, for example, and it's obviously not finished. It needs a rhythm to propel it along. But what do you do with it and yet not mess it up? So that's the sort of enjoyable pressure we like to be under."

Though the method of release overshadowed the music of "In Rainbows" somewhat, it's been almost universally hailed as a masterpiece. Yorke has been quoted as calling it "our classic album, our `Transformer,' our `Revolver,' our `Hunky Dory'" — a statement he said is a misquote: "I do talk some ... but I didn't say that."

His point, he said, is that they strove to make a similarly concise work as those albums.

"In Rainbows" may be a departure, but it's unmistakably Radiohead. Yorke is still singing about disconnection between people, which he cheerfully acknowledges: "It's part of my repertoire. It's what I do. Some people go and work at something they don't like, others talk about disconnection a lot."

But the album still feels apart from the old Radiohead story line. For the first time, they don't sound self-conscious. The band says it all starts with being free of a record contract. (The album was also released traditionally on Jan. 1 by ATO imprint TBD Records, topping the sales charts that week. The band has declined to release sales figures for the download.)

"When we weren't signed to EMI and didn't have a contract, that threw up all this mad(ness)," said Yorke. "In a way, your possibilities are endless and limitless and meaningless. You actually suddenly have — I don't know why, it doesn't make sense — but there was a complete lack of connection with our past."

The band has called the digital giveaway a "one-off" experiment, but they've also re-examined other ways they conduct business. They last year commissioned a report from the company Best Foot Forward to judge the carbon and ecological footprint of their touring.

Any adjustments are in the early stages, but the band has posted messages on their Web site urging fans to car pool to concerts. They caution that music is at the heart of any new endeavors.

"The truth of the matter is that none of those rethinking things would be occurring if we weren't vibed up on the fact that we finished something. The energy always comes from an excitement about what one has done."

And as might be expected for the ever forward-looking Radiohead, new songs are already in the works, though they are still just "on guitars," says Jonny Greenwood. He only hints that the songs explore "absurd musical ideas."

"When you hear Thom and Jonny in the soundcheck and they've come up with something and start playing it, it's good to hear," said O'Brien.

The process of finding the right instruments for the songs will soon begin. Greenwood would like to even throw a banjo into the mix, but said he gets "level looks" from his bandmates whenever he brings it out. "There's a ban on banjos," said his 38-year-old brother.

"What's interesting to me is very old technologies like orchestras and pianos and things and how they meet modern recording and treatment techniques," said Greenwood, 36, who also does classical work on the side, including the buzzing, unforgettable score to "There Will Be Blood."

Radiohead will tour Europe in June and July before returning for the second leg of their North America tour, which will kick off Aug. 1 at the Lollapalooza Festival.

In the meantime, Yorke — who said he still considers the album "the most satisfying format" — has already envisioned the next innovation to deploy when they have new music to release.

"Let's leave it on the street corner with a little sign," Yorke jokes as excitement sweeps over his face. "Now that's a good idea! I like that idea. With a little photo on the Web: `It's here.' A couple of clues. A little doggie bag."

Nifty lo-fi fanvid for Nude...

Big Ideas - Don't Get Any

Radiohead held an online contest to remix "Nude" from their album - "In Rainbows" This was quite a difficult task for everybody that entered, as Nude is in 6/8 timing, and 63bpm. Most music that's played in clubs is around 120bpm and usually 4/4 timing. It's pretty difficult to seamlessly mix a waltz beat into a DJ set.

This resulted in lots of generic entries consisting of a typical 4/4 beat, but with arbitrary clips from "Nude" thrown in so that they qualified for the contest.

Thom Yorke joked at the ridiculousness of it in an interview for NPR radio, hinting that they set the competition to find out how people would approach such a challenging task.

I decided to take the piss a bit, as the contest seemed to be in that spirit.

Based on the lyric (and alternate title) "Big Ideas: Don't get any" I grouped together a collection of old redundant hardware, and placed them in a situation where they're trying their best to do something that they're not exactly designed to do, and not quite getting there.

It doesn't sound great, as it's not supposed to.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Guitars (rhythm & lead)
Epson LX-81 Dot Matrix Printer - Drums
HP Scanjet 3c - Bass Guitar
Hard Drive array - Act as a collection of bad speakers - Vocals & FX

Thanks to Afrotech and Dr Roland Shregle (ganjatron)

Ah, I thought you might like it, tapes. :roll:

And maybe it's just me, but it strangely somehow seems to fit the album, as well.


Shame the man missed the deadline. While not forgetting that just 'cuz I know their music some, then that I should somehow "know" them, it is kind of hard to imagine the band not loving it, really.

Oh boy that was really perfect. Making melancholy with outdated hardware. I can't imagine the band not loving it either, I maybe prefer it to the original perhaps.
Great find, Flumm, cheers.

All I can say is kudos to Thom Yorke for putting Hannah Montana's ego in check.

I had to look it up, but its an interesting story of celbrity = Radiohead, Kanye West and Achy Breaky Disney Jr.

Same story on stereogum - which includes the little power-tripper's radio interview.

i wonder how many "obsessed" hannah montana fans miley cyrus has agreed to meet with personally.
and they dissed kanye too. haha, i hadn't heard that one.
strangely enough, they DID agree to meet with kanye's vocoder.
but that's probably only because they had worked with it in the past, on 'fitter happier'

To me, this culminates the greatness that is Radiohead. It's definitely the most relaxed to date. A little lighter on depth of lyrics. Rich sound. Delicious. Nigel G is a genius, he brings out their true colours.

This may have been mentioned earlier in the thread, but can anybody tell me what the difference is between the "Thumbs Down" version and the "Scotch Mist" version? I did a search for Radiohead on YouTube and a bunch of the songs from In Rainbows were labelled differently. The songs I clicked on sounded slightly different, but I'm not totally sure what that difference was.

Scotch Mist was Radiohead's live New Year's Eve 2007 video webcast. The versions of the songs are uniformly amazing and better than the album version in some cases.

How about a free Radiohead concert? Fans recorded the August 23, 2009 show in Prague on dozens of cameras and the band gave them the audio. Now they are making the video available in several downloadable formats here. Not sure if they have a shitty server or traffic is that high but it might take a while to get the site to open. I'm grabbing the DVD and will probably go back for the Blu-ray when its available.

But in case it takes too long:
