"I’ve always been drawn to familiar things that have something wrong with them, that sound like something’s broken. But I’m a little wary when scores drift into sound design too much, and it just becomes slightly . . . I feel myself edging towards saying that everything should have a nice melody to whistle on the way out. Which I don’t think, but you see a lot of scores where there’s just a drone with some granular scratches on it, and things start to sound like temp music—which is a shame. Because I really do love writing all the romantic stuff. I don’t know what I’m trying to say, really."

Jonny played the cello like a banjo in The Power of the Dog.   Because, Jonny.

Interesting, seems the band doesn't have the multitracks for Treefingers...

"No multitracks existed for this song..."

this was a great read--thanks.  The model for the spiral galleries wasn't the Guggenheim as I thought.   And Nigel's Treefingers mix for the inside of the pyramid was on point.

Yeah I listened to that too.  Great interview most about his work outside Radiohead and the Smile.

There's always another nugget you didn't know.  Like after hearing that Thom and his bandmates didn't get on with a keyboardist because he "played too loud" when Jonny joined, for a long while he played with the keyboard turned all the way down.  And because they were just thrashing guitars like a garage band no one noticed.  😆

Thom and Jonny have written original music for Peaky Blinders.  Never watched the show but should be fun what they wrote.

I will check this out, though tried this series back in the day and didn't stick with it. 

Someone sent me this from Nigel's twitter

"the first thing you need to know" from the NYT opinion 

Booger, augie march didn't click for me, but I'm trying out Big Thief's new release Dragon New Warm Mountain I Believe in You.

full disclosure, I saw it on the Annex.  Wish some of those former ateasers would return more often.  but times change I get it

Saw Sigur Ros twice while in college, during the () tour.  Friend gave me this gel tab which I took and asked him what is this.  He said it’s a new legal drug.  Later I learned it was Foxy.  A mix of acid and ex.  It was a great show.

you really trust your friends

Choreographer Robert Bondara will be using "Staircase" in a larger reworking of his original ballet duet, set to premiere in Australia.  The new extended  30-minute version features 31 dancers and five RH tracks.  The duet was first set to "Reckoner" for the Polish National Ballet.

does anyone know if the broadcast setlist for TKOL From The Basement was actually the order they recorded the songs in on that day? Like did they really do The Daily Mail after Bloom or did they do TDM second-to-last but decided to edit in as the second song on the broadcast?

I don't know the answer, but my sense is that more songs were recorded than made it onto the broadcast.  I was hoping the CODA collection would reveal the order and the songs we didn't see, but that didn't happen. ( I think I read somewhere that's the case but it's possible it's only in my head.)

Jonny Greenwood accepts the BAFTA award for Best Original Screenplay for Licorice Pizza on behalf of PTA.

Greenwood says, “If Paul didn't sing like a donkey he'd probably do the music on his films as well.”

Interview with Jonny

"A few years ago, someone suggested he hire arrangers so he could complete several scores a year, but the idea didn’t stick. “I enjoy all the arranging. It’s slow and it takes ages—but you know the phrase ‘Work is more fun than fun’?”"    <---
