    This Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread - Radiohead Edition

    They were most likely frying their balls off in the forest and/or studio. I had a chance to talk to Stanley for a good 20 minutes at the Atoms for Peace DJ set at MOCA in 2012 and I asked him about the blotter paper in TKOL special edition... he told me it was all Thom's idea and that it was really last minute, too. He got all coy when I out right asked him if they were dropping acid while making the album, but I think it's safe to assume LSD or other psychedelics had something to do with those sessions. Ed's comment confirmed it for me

    As someone lucky to enough to have heard every song on AMSP live, the only one that sucked was The Numbers.

    Who is your new Radiohead?

    Don't get me wrong—I really, really like Beach House. I have everything from Devotion to 7 on vinyl (except Lucky Stars, still need to grab that). I think they make an awesome noise and I hope to see them do it live sometime soon! What I mean by "artistic integrity" is the constant refining and reworking of a song until it's perfect. We all know about Radiohead's perfectionism and them sitting on songs for years or decades to ensure they're "right". Same thing goes for Grizzly Bear's latest album—you can tell they toiled over making a perfect album, and in my humble opinion, they did. I get why some people aren't as into Deerhunter, especially the last two albums, but Halcyon Digest is still one of the best albums of this decade and was quite the artistic statement. I'm sure Beach House toils as well, but I don't feel like they push themselves as hard as they could and are a bit too comfortable in their sound, though I admit 7 was a huge step in the right direction compared to Lucky Stars/Depression Cherry (at least for me personally). As far as Nirvana is concerned, they were really only in the spotlight for 2.5 years before Kurt died and thus didn't have enough time to grow. I'm sure Kurt's musical output would have matured as he aged—and we got a glimpse of what could have been with Unplugged. I'd like to think he would have completely given up on distortion and power chords by the late 90s 🙂 And yes, Scatterbrain is still in my top 10 favorite Radiohead songs. Dunno if they'll ever top Daydreaming though, that shit is pure magic. I hope I'm wrong, though!

    Uhh, maybe Yellow House suffers from sounding the same, but Painted Ruins is fucking brilliant. All songs sound different. Also, Deerhunter has done a great job of switching up their sound for each album.
