Pissing on something you're excited about sure is a strange reaction.

I hope it's super bleep bloody and it gets rave reviews and classic rockers feel insecure about their tastes once again

Johnny Greenwood said something about how they relearned to play as a band for this album or something to that end, and that they had been working on "limiting" themselves. whatever that means

I'm hoping for something that leans more towards In Rainbows than bleep bleep bloop bloop. I wasn't that into King of Limbs

I just want something that's different

Not like "never heard before!" but just Radiohead exploring some new territory

Or I mean I'd be okay if they just literally made "Kid A 2" with that title and everything

What's pretentious about folk music other than the fact that you don't understand it?

Rajasthan Express is the band, ben tzur is the composer, and greenwood produced it.

I think you're giving radiohead a little too much credit, as if johnny greenwood invented this or something.

Fair enough - but yea it will give a lot of exposure to the project. You know how some idiot fans of bands will buy anything.

i just watched Junun the other day actually. in parts.
It kinda blew my mind how random it is for some israeli stoner guy making indian music in India (there are plenty of those guys fwiw) to be able too hook up with Johnny Greenwood and Paul Thomas Anderson.

I like all Radiohead material so far, so I don't care if it's bleep-bloopier than ever, or a return to '90s alt rock (so long as it doesn't sound like Pablo Honey or something). But if they're talking about an orchestra, I'm thinking it might either be "Spectre"-esque big-band-ish stuff, or maybe sorta symphonic-electronic rock or something.

I think I've heard that the last album was mostly Yorke? Maybe that's what Greenwood means by this being more of a band effort.

bleep bloop? are you refering to kid a/amnesiac style stuff?

cos there are many words that come to mind when one seeks to define this sound (such as senescence or visceralitude) but none, i repeat NONE of these words is bleep bloop.

motherfucker.

I hear they are releasing a box set called "Radiohead: The Bleep Bloop Years." It has a lot of outtakes of bleeps and bloops that didn't make it into the final songs.

Funny capsule review I read awhile back about Tomorrow's Modern Boxes

Quote:
"Remember when Thom Yorke songs had guitars, and weren’t a series of blips and bleeps? Remember when Thom Yorke didn’t have a ponytail? Remember when Thom Yorke wasn’t in a sideproject with a Red Hot Chilli Pepper? Hey man, that’s awesome you “stuck it to the man” by releasing this wanna-be Aphex Twin album on bit-torrent… too bad it sucks!"

I just realized that I still haven't listened to Tomorrow's Modern Boxes.

Most of his side-project stuff doesn't sound super different from Radiohead. Atoms for Peace was, like, funkier Radiohead, I guess. You can hear the difference, but if it were released as a Radiohead album, I wouldn't say "this sounds like a different band," I'd just say "oh I guess this is the style of this album because all of them are a little different."

The Eraser was pretty Radiohead-ish, I'm guessing the reason it was a solo thing was because Yorke made it all on his laptop, so it would be weird to put the entire band's name on it.

i actually liked the bloopy stuff and King of Limbs quite a bit, i think it has some great moments - but i just hope they swing for the fences this time, rather than insist on limiting themselves to unseen parameters and not showing their splendor. spectre was great. but either way, i'm really curious to see where they go went this time, and that's something you can say about very very few bands these days

I hope it has moments like in Airbag where the dry magisterial riff and its wet perverted twin recede, leaving chemtrails, and there's no sound left on the whole dark earth but a gigantic set of sleigh bells, chiming undaunted a jazz funeral for every christmas, before the next, even spookier verse begins

This.

Also, I agree - the description makes me nervous. Had it been "this thing is the greatest album they've done in a long time" that would be one thing, but the quote could lead one to believe it's even another step out there from TKOL.

I didn't think King of Limbs was that weird or out-there for a Radiohead album.

Haven't listened to it for a little while, but wasn't most of it more melodic than Kid A/Amnesiac? I don't remember anything like "Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors" or "Treefingers."

Also, since Radiohead's thing is to just drop albums without much announcement, does anybody else have a suspicion that the manager said "June" so that they could surprise everybody by releasing it like next week or something?

i can't quite put my finger on what makes King of Limbs underwhelming, but it very much is.
i've grown to really like that record - there's some great stuff on there. but something about the way it's produced, maybe, sounds very small, unremarkable, and tinny.

it definitely felt like much more of a Yorke solo record than other Radiohead albums - especially considering the best song on the album was him with a looper pedal. for better or worse (probably better), this upcoming one sounds like much more of a group effort.
