From Pablo Honey to Hail to the Thief, Radiohead is a band of many faces. Their current studio resembles a NASA control room with various synths and samplers permeating their surroundings.
A man who once worked as an orderly in a mental institute, and a man who received five operations in his first five years due to a paralyzed left eye, Thom may be against globalization, but his music has proven to bring the world together. Becoming one of the biggest and most successful bands that ever graced a stage, it's almost a given that anyone who knows anything about popular musical composition loves Radiohead. It is a perquisite for an elitist engaging in a musical conversation. (Except in Willamsburg Brooklyn, where it’s not cool to love Thom, because then you might as well live in the East Village)
The constant evolution of Radiohead has given them a sense of urgency. A band that takes risks, but never seems to fail. The latest risk is Thom Yorke's "solo" album, "The Eraser." Produced by the "sixth member of Radiohead," Nigel Goodrich, the album continues the electronic emphasis of Radiohead.
Providing a backdrop for your listening, I leave you to make your judgments regarding the album. I'd be happy to share my thoughts regarding the album, but maybe after you decide for yourself. I will say this though; it's probably better than whatever you are currently listening to. The album will officially be released on July 11th, and at that time I will repost, so that the official album will be on the Feldheim. I just figured I would add to our elitism by posting an album before it comes out. That way we can engage in conversations that go like this:
"bro, did you hear Thom Yorke is releasing a solo album, it comes out in little over a month."
"it's a great album, I really feel that Nigel did a great job producing this one, the album is beginning to feel like my own epidermis, I was surprised to see that Nigel laid off the reverb on the vocals, and more surprised that Thom let him. It seems that after all these years, the chemistry those studio rats have built has inexorably led them to make such an album. I think they used an 808 on cymbal rush, but knowing Thom, it's probably some custom casio."
* I just wanted to point out that I resent the symbolic nature of the picture that represents me on the Feldheim. That being stated, the overly successful comedic nature of the picture leaves me with no choice but to accept this picture as my representation. I in no way support any acts of violence in the name of any silly religion. I in no way support the wearing of towels on one’s head. Also, I am from Iran, not Saudi Arabia. That being said.........Death to all Infidels!!!!
