Come & Take It Live
"...Stipe's vocals ring in full control, spitting "So Fast, So Numb" and quietly introducing songs as the band broils well-honed bravado and rich layers ("I Wanted to Be Wrong," "Imitation of Life"). The undisputed highlight pivots on Radiohead's Thom Yorke joining in on "E-Bow the Letter," his unsettling moan quaking the chorus into another realm...."
"...Yamanaka's deliciously observed portrait of a year and change in the life of a high schooler, through her obsessions, crushes, and adolescent selfishness is funny and painful in equal measures. Shot with the lo-fi intensity of early Ken Loach, it's an accumulation of details that build up Amio's personality – like the way she walks past lanky, diffident, Radiohead loving soccer player Aomi (Hiroro Oshita as the ultimate teenage daydream) again and again and again and again in the desperate hopes that he'll look her way..."
"...Radiohead-inpsired record store/café combo Exit Music for a Drink..."
"...crew capped the night with a Latin concoction of garage rock, psychedelia, and soul. The sunny surf rock of “American Spirits” returned the crowd to reality after the dream world of Seyer and Bane's World, who joined Inner Wave for a closing cover of “Creep” that came across as warmly as a group of friends gathered around the TV to play the Radiohead track on Rock Band...."
"...Fans of Daedelus' pastiche take note, but this isn't just for the heads. "Continuum" invokes Radiohead's best electronic moments, complete with reverb-drenched vocals delivered live..."
"...market last year when its 2017 sophomore disc Jolly New Songs landed on a Newsweek best-of list. Haunting, atmospheric, with English lyrics, the Poles boast "elements of Sigur Ros and Radiohead," according to Rolling Stone great David Fricke, "but even darker." – Raoul Hernandez Keith Urban..."
"...Taken together, they accounted for a marked dip in interest for C3 Presents' largest local event. Last year, which boasted both Kendrick Lamar and Radiohead, weekend one wristbands sold out in a single day..."
"...Fleming also pointed out the uncomfortable idea that polyamorous men are never the people anyone would want to be polyamorous with. “[They’re] the guys who got into Radiohead too young,” he said...."
"...Grammy Award-winning jazz musician Robert Glasper plays his music, his way. Whether the Houston native strips down into acoustic sets for the Robert Glasper Trio, or zips his multi-soul/hip-hop/jazz fusion outfit the Robert Glasper Experiment through Radiohead and David Bowie, the keyboardist brings laser focus to a broad spectrum of air fluctuations.

"...There’s too many to list here so we’ll hit you with a few favorites. Switched On Electronics on East Cesar Chavez is regarded as one of America’s finest emporiums of vintage synths and analog audio gear and has proven to be a popular shopping spot for touring musicians including Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead..."
"...7) Radiohead, A Moon Shaped Pool (XL)..."
"...Survive also dished a fourth LP, RR7349, with esteemed metal messengers Relapse Records. The band's newfound popularity fueled Austin's burgeoning synth scene, centralized around Radiohead-approved retailers Switched On Electronics and local cassette specialists Holodeck Records. Mayor's Omnibus..."
"...Other notable Weekend Two exclusives included smooth rapper/singer/drummer Anderson Paak, Bright Eyes frontman Conor Oberst, and budding R&B pop star Anderson East – all of whom turned out big crowds. Additionally, Radiohead double-dippers were treated with a variant set list last Friday that closed with "Fake Plastic Trees." For Austin's music heads, ACL isn't two weekend-long festivals..."
"...Reviewers’ shorthand is where something is described as a combination of two or more other things. “Oh yeah, Predator,” a friend explained back in 1988, “it’s like Alien crossed with Platoon.” Or, just a few weeks ago at some vinyl-pimping afterparty, “Okay, the Velvet Underground jamming with Hawkwind as remixed by the Cocteau Twins – that’s kind of what Radiohead sounds like, sometimes, maybe..."
"...Throughout, the band beamed with a genuine enthusiasm, Mumford declaring, “This might be my favorite festival in the world,” and asking the crowd, “Who just saw Willie Nelson play? We can all die happy now!” He acknowledged the honor of sharing the bill with Radiohead and Kendrick Lamar, but the band made their case for closing festival headliners with tightly controlled tension and release between the tender “Ghosts That We Knew,” raging lift of “The Cave,” and stomp & roll of “Below My Feet” into new live anthem “Forever.”..."
"...Radiohead thrashes against a thoroughly modern fear rife with the paradox of hyper-mediation and isolation amidst a disconnected world. “This is a low-flying panic attack,” quivered Thom Yorke’s moaning wail on Friday night set opener “Burn the Witch,” the stage bathed in blood red lights and screens split in a disorienting, schizophrenic mania...."
"...Today, it's kids leaving their parents – and their musical tastes – at home. Did you see how young Major Lazer's massive crowd was on Friday? They didn't care that Radiohead was playing at the other end of the park...."
"...UK art-rock band (if we must), Radiohead remains as much a statement as a band. Perhaps in some low-key solidarity woven into the ominous red glow and disorienting frequency fuzz, the band began Friday night with a snippet of late goddess Nina Simone: “It’s just a feeling..."
