    Who is your new Radiohead?

    Nirvana doesn't seem like a very apt comparison given they only made three studio albums. There's a pretty clear arc in those three records, and from my perspective they never feel as same-y as Beach House within the same record. I like Beach House generally, but definitely relate to the sentiment of listening to an album and finding little variation, and then experiencing the same from album to album. I did think 7 felt like a change of pace, but didn't much care for it. Nirvana is interesting. Bleach was heavy and pretty unrefined, and only in hindsight did you see the genesis of songsmith Kurt (for example, About a Girl) that emerged on Nevermind. Then In Utero sort of fused the noisier and unrefined side of Bleach with the songcraft and more polished writing of Nevermind. I think that's probably why many feel In Utero is the best summation of what Nirvana was over their career, and fits within an arc that makes pretty clear sense. It is interesting to think about what might have happened after that record had Kurt not killed himself. I do think that if they were five or six records on mining the same sound as those first three records people would have probably started to criticize more. Even Kurt after In Utero acknowledged he wasn't sure how much further they could take their sound with the same lineup and setup, so it's interesting to wonder what might have happened.

    Is this an Ash dupe account?

    Ill Wind getting single release

    It was too much effort once alphabetical order had done the work for them!

    That would be my takeaway as well, I'm just not sure if that's the band's takeaway. There's at least one Jonny interview out there that seems to imply they (or maybe just he?) don't think much about the themes or ideas when putting together a record.

    Would love to ask the band why this didn't make the record. It's certainly better than a handful of tracks that did.

    https://variety.com/2019/music/news/thom-yorke-radiohead-oscar-best-song-shortlist-suspiria-1203102955/ One step closer to Colin being the only one there and playing the bass part to Creep five times.

    A Zane sighting is the most exciting thing to happen in months. That's how little is happening in Radiohead land.

    Colin Digging Through Bends Session Tapes?!

    Same. Love the My Iron Lung EP so much.

    Colin Digging Through Bends Session Tapes?!

    That would make sense. Radiohead and their superior knowledge of U.S. road systems.

    My recollection is that reference to the Stones was intended to be a slight.

    Interesting. I always think of it in terms of reconciling his relationship with Rachel. Like you might no longer be in love with a person, but you can still love that person for other reasons and in another way.

    Controversial opinions thread

    Too bad they didn't find that sooner and get it in the studio. It adds so much more life to the song. That said, I really wish they'd stop playing this one live so fucking much!
