Attention Bayou City Radioheads
Has anyone downloaded Radiohead’s brand-new MP3-only album In Rainbows yet? I haven’t, but the codes were emailed overnight and reviews are starting to trickle onto the Internet. (Like here.) Seems like another stylistic mash-up a la Hail to the Thief, with perhaps some of Thom Yorke’s latent Don Henley fandom bubbling to the surface. If you’ve had a chance to listen, please leave a few thoughts in the comments.
In related news, Drenched in Blog noted Trent Reznor’s intention to join Radiohead onto the free-agent track yesterday, and now it looks like Oasis and Jamiroquai – who remain befuddlingly popular in the UK – are set to follow suit. For completely non-musical reasons, this hilarious Web site immediately springs to mind. – Chris Gray
