Monday Morning Music #46

Monday, October 10th, 2011

I finally watched the hour-long Radiohead episode of The Colbert Report, where I heard the song “The Daily Mail” for the first time. Here’s a separate recording of the same song:

I really like how things build up to the last quarter of this song.

Christopher O’Riley has some amazing piano performances of Radiohead songs. His album, True Love Waits is a compilation of these songs, and is well worth listening. One of my favorites is his adaption of Let Down:

A lot of YouTube audio collages and remixes don’t come out too well, but I think this one of Radiohead’s Paranoid Android does a good job of capturing the spirit of the original while adding a wider variety of flavors:

I’ve been listening to Radiohead a lot in the last couple of weeks, especiall the albums Kid A and In Rainbows. They age really well.

Radiohead Concert

On Friday, I saw Radiohead in Golden Gate park. The event was filled with trials and tribulations, but the music was awesome, I heartily recommend seeing them live if you ever have the chance.

I won’t go through the play-by-play for the whole story, as it’s quite a bit to type out, but here are a few notes:
– Unfortunately, I missed the first song because of a ticketing problem. Worse, the first song was 15 Step, which was really looking forward to hearing live.
– The ended with Everything in its Right Place, but with a faster beat and a driving bass drum part. It was a really cool variation.
– They didn’t play Electioneering. More cowbell!

Radiohead’s probably my favorite band. According to last.fm, I’ve listened to almost twice as many Radiohead tracks as any other band in the last ~5 years. I also have more radiohead tracks (110) than tracks for any other band, so there’s a bit of bias in that number, but whatever.
