We recently came across this amazing arrangement of Radiohead’s hit Paranoid Android, performed as a series of layered cello tracks by musician George Durham, with the string instrument taking on duties of both the melodic and rhythmic parts of the 1996 classic.
A bit from a 2012 Central Park performance by Reggie Watts in which he replicated the esoteric and offbeat sounds of Thom Yorke and the gang from Radiohead. It’s so spot-on that some are calling it a “cover” rather than a “parody.” Download or stream the track here.
Since this video by Green Grass dates back to 2011, it doesn’t include Radiohead’s most recent albums, but it’s still fascinating to hear the soothing sounds you get when you play every song the band recorded between Pablo Honey and Supercollider/The Butcher simultaneously.
BBC Earth returns to the seas 16 years after The Blue Planet, but with the today’s camera tech, it’s sure to blow our minds like Planet Earth II did. The 5-minute short teases us with some of the incredible sights to come, and is set to a soundtrack by Hans Zimmer and Radiohead.
We’re not sure how we missed this incredible Radiohead cover when Weezer recorded it 2011, but we figured some of you might have missed it too. One commenter said Rivers singing Thom’s part was “Like seeing Woody Allen in a Batman movie.” We agree, but in a good way.
A remastered version of the Radiohead classic OK Computer. It will also come with three unreleased tracks and eight B-sides. The boxed edition comes with a hardcover artbook, a notebook with copies of Thom Yorke’s notes from the time of recording, and more.
Musician Josh Cohen has a thing for performing cover versions of Radiohead tunes on his grand piano. Each and every one of the tracks will pull you in and won’t let go with its quiet intensity. We can’t decide if Everything In Its Right Place or Daydreaming is our favorite.
More than 20 years ago, Radiohead appeared on an unlikely stage – MTV’s Beach House – turning in performances of their classics Creep and Anyone Can Play Guitar, and transfixing what would have normally been a rowdy group of college kids with their hard-edged alt-rock.
After wiping out their entire internet presence earlier this week, Radiohead is back with a bang. Here’s the debut music video from their forthcoming album; a sinister stop-motion short by Chris Hopewell in which a peaceful village is home to some rather nasty rituals.
Before they decided to go with Sam Smith, it seems that the theme song for James Bond’s Spectre was going to be sung by Radiohead. As a holiday gift, the band released the track for free. It’s an awesome Radiohead song, but Thom Yorke is still no Adele or Shirley Bassey.
