Who Is Radiohead?

I obviously wasn’t going to post about Radiohead today, but it seems as though it’s kind of a mandated thing in light of the BIG announcement from earlier today. Leave it to the most innovative large-scale rock band in the world to utterly befuddle the music industry (not to mention all the “up-to-the-minute” music bloggers and webzines) in a day and age when that is becoming harder and harder to do. This may be the all-time musical sneak attack.

In case you somehow haven’t heard, Radiohead will release their 7th studio album, In Rainbows, on 10/10. Oh yeah, they’re doing it electronically (at least at first) and they’re only asking for a fair donation as reimbursement. All the details can be found at Pitchfork, or just about any music blog on the internet. For a minute I lost myself.

Here’s a few B-Sides from earlier this decade:
MP3 :: Paperbag Writer
MP3 :: Where Bluebirds Fly
----------------------------------

MP3 :: Karma Police (live)
(from The Glastonbury Festival. 6.28.97)
----------------------------------

And where’s “Arpeggi”? The only new live song I’ve downloaded doesn’t appear to be on the 10 song album, nor the bonus disc that comes with the “discbox” purchase.

MP3 :: Arpeggi (live)
********************************************
And let's not forget that another of music's heavy hitters is releasing a brand new album today (10/2/07). Bruce Springsteen is dropping Magic, his first studio release with the E Street Band since 2002's The Rising. The good folks over at AOL's Spinner will be streaming the new record all week.
