Music: VIDEO: Radiohead’s awkward-dance-heavy “Lotus Flower”

  • Never have we been so excited to see a middle-aged man dancing like a rockstar. Welcome back, Thom Yorke. Your fans missed you. The song rules, too – a clear continuation of “In Rainbows”-era awesomeness. Oh yeah, the album’s out now, not tomorrow. source

Music: Thom Yorke says what we were all thinking about the music industry

  • When the corporate industry dies it will be no great loss to the world. So don’t tie yourself to the sinking ship because, believe me, it’s sinking.
  • Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke • Discussing the fall of music industry capitalism in a British textbook. He seems to have a good handle on this. He left his big corporate label, EMI, just a couple years before they fell into particularly dire straits. EMI is now the property of private equity firm Terra Firma, and since the 2007 acquisition, they’ve had massive debt and restructuring problems. (via Pitchforksource

  • Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke • In a report on the climate change conference in Copenhagen. Our boy got a press pass and got to see it all from the inside, rather than the view that protesters got from the outside. When you’ve lost the lead singer of Radiohead, you’ve lost the indie kids. source

Music: Thom Yorke’s new backup band features Flea. Yes, THAT Flea.

Thom Yorke and his backup band
  • Despite having a super-famous Red Hot Chili Pepper as his bassist, the rest of the Radiohead singer’s solo band certainly couldn’t be called a cast of unknowns either. They include really well-known session drummer Joey Waronker, Brazilian-born Mauro Refosco and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. Oh, and Flea. Wasn’t he in The Big Lebowski? source

Music: Radiohead’s in no rush to make a new album. Sadly.

  • The next LP? Not right away Thom Yorke admitted this much in a recent issue of The Believer, causing thousands of hipsters to have early-onset heart attacks. “None of us want to go into that creative hoo-ha of a long-play record again,” says Yorke. “Not straight off.” Part of it is that they don’t want to do an album like “In Rainbows” again. Yorke continues: “Not that it’s not good, I just can’t… bear… that.”
  • Expect one-offs instead Radiohead, however, will continue to release special one-off things, such as “Harry Patch [In Memory Of],” the memorial song they created for a World War I soldier who recently died. Orchestral work is also on the table. Despite the awesomeness of projects like this, “In Rainbows” is evidence of the LP’s greatness and it’d be a shame to see them stop. source

  • It’s at the stage where we’ve got the big Lego box out and we’ve tipped it out on the floor and we’re just looking at all the bits and thinking what’s next?
  • Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood • On the startings of another album from the British superstars. If it’s half as good as “In Rainbows,” we can’t wait. Also, Thom Yorke regularly says awesome things. • source

Music: Kanye’s back to what he does best: Priceless quotes

  • Can’t we give Chris a break? … O.J. Simpson, amazing. Is he not? What he did, when he did, what he did. Was he not amazing though?
  • Kanye West • During a “VH1 Storytellers” performance. West was making an attempt to, uh, try to convince people that Chris Brown wasn’t such a bad guy. He referred to Michael Phelps and Michael Jackson in the same context. West also spoke of a Thom Yorke snub at the Grammys, a snub that made him sad because dude’s a big fan of Radiohead. • source
