Beck might get the award for best entrance into a indie-rock feud. Earlier this year, Radiohead recorded and released a song about World War One veteran Harry Patch, "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)."

Reviews

Radiohead (with Caribou), The Prudential Center, Newark, NJ

May 31st, 2012

Jun 08, 2012

Radiohead have been progressing from a standard rock band (albeit a damn good one) circa 1995's The Bends and 1997's OK Computer, into something more silvery, elliptical, and downright challenging, beginning with 2000's epochal Kid A. However, their live shows still bring the rock action, to paraphrase Iggy Pop, and their astounding gig at Newark's Prudential Center was no exception. More

The King of Limbs

The King of Limbs

Ticker Tape/XL/TBD

Mar 07, 2011

(We're running multiple reviews of Radiohead's The King of Limbs. Read one written by Jim Scott here and below is Laura Studarus' take on the album.) Radiohead, as we know it, is dead. The English quintet that blossomed from early '90s rock poster children to new century electro weirdos, has returned after four years in the studio with The King of Limbs, their eight full-length. But rather than shake up fans by delivering either a truly terrible album or an innovative collection (or even a terribly innovative collection), we’ve been given a standard workhorse album—eight songs of expert, paint-by-numbers Radioheadness. More

The King of Limbs

The King of Limbs

Ticker Tape/XL/TBD

Feb 25, 2011

The King of Limbs opens with a snappy, off-kilter drumbeat, call-and-response electronics, and then Thom Yorke singing, “Open your mouth wide.” One minute into “Bloom” and the band’s first new album in four years, and the expectations could not be higher. And then… the beat continues, the electronics pulse on, and Yorke occasionally dips his toes in with a few lines here and there. “Bloom” never reaches the astounding heights Radiohead has become known for, but then again, neither does The King of Limbs.

Kid A: Special Collectors Edition

Kid A: Special Collectors Edition

Capitol

Nov 03, 2009

Capitol gives Radiohead the reissue treatment on Kid A, Amnesiac, and Hail to the Thief, which should come as no surprise given the band's stature and the current state of the music industry. There's no question that this is a money grab, but whether it's one that benefits the consumer depends on what they've found in the vaults to bolster albums that most people already own and don't have much to gain from remastering or remixing.
