  1. You know the drill. I was reading an article on IndieWire this morning about the annual JAPAN CUTS festival in NYC and came across this blurb about the upcoming film Amiko.

    Yeah, Jeff B. He’s very active on Twitter (@EsotericCD). Good guy; great taste.

    This Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread - Radiohead Edition

    The old atease user Vice President Cheney (VPC) has a music podcast called "Political Beats" and apparently it's pretty high quality (I don't listen to podcasts, so I don't know). He and his co-host get some pretty interesting guests to come on for each show. They're launching their Radiohead episode in a week or two, and I'm half considering giving it a listen because VPC's Radiohead knowledge is bonkers. I'll post it here when it comes out.

    Imagine thinking “Hail to the _____” was a Radiohead original turn of phrase.

    I chanced upon that one very fine day on Reddit and it's my best find there.

    I want to make fun of this, but then I remember that I, too, got into Radiohead in high school and had a lot of overwrought thoughts about them (still do!). And now I feel old and sad.

    Editing posts

    @adriaan please make it so the ability to edit posts does not go away a few minutes after submitting a post. This was not a feature of the old atease, and it’s rather annoying.

    I've been listening to a bunch of Thom's unreleased solo stuff over the past few days and have a question: why does Thom disproportionately use falsetto these days? Does this have to do with aging, or is this a stylistic choice of his (or both)? I'm not a singer, so I'm not sure.

    I sometimes wonder if newer/younger Radiohead fans, such as those on Reddit, don’t come here because, aside from atease’s traditionally offsetting culture, there’s not much familiarity with message boards anymore. My teenage years were in the early ‘00s before social media. At the time, message boards were the closest thing we had to social media (well . . . and MySpace, AIM, and early blogs). I get the sense that message boards are largely a relic of the past that younger people aren’t familiar with nor are interested in engaging with. I might be wrong.

    Makes me happy they haven't forgotten my favorite track from The Bends.

    Any time I feel the need to discourage someone from listening to Radiohead, I just show them this video - a 15 minute analysis of a 6 minute song that is sure to leave them confused and bored.

    That could be true, but why have lights configured for a song like “Bulletproof,” which they haven’t played in at least a decade?

    Yes, a lot of Thom's lyrics are nonsense, which is a big reason I don't listen to Radiohead much for the lyrics (though there are exceptions, of course, like the few examples I outlined in your lyrics thread).

    Controversial opinions thread

    In my own hypothetical re-sequencing of HTTT, I have The Gloaming in the #2 slot right after the pure opener that is 2+2=5. (Thom choosing to re-sequence 2+2=5 toward the end of the album in his own revision is completely misguided, but I digress.) After the abrupt end of the opener, the "swishy-swirly" sounds are a hypnotic comedown, somewhat akin to the "tape-reversal" sound at the beginning of Daydreaming. I'm surprised by how well the transition works, and how much better The Gloaming becomes when sequenced this way. Add the natural transition to There There in the third slot (There There had no business being buried in the middle-end of the album), and you have a very satisfying three-song opener: 2+2=5 The Gloaming There There You reminded me to check out the FTB performance of The Gloaming again . . .

    I'm very fond of that brief rhythmic piano playing toward the end of Backdrifts as well.
