FTR, I know The Bends shouldn't be that high on my list, I just like it for sentimental values. It only has a few good songs compared to the rest now that I think of it, haha.

Happy BDAY AMNESIAC!!!!

http://stereogum.com/718782/amnesiac-turns-10-hear-covers-of-every-track/top-stories/lead-story/

As mentioned in last week’s Radiohead’s 20 Best Cover Songs post, our dear leaders’ fifth album Amnesiac turns ten years old this weekend. Viewed as a more human companion to its boundary pushing cousin Kid A (recorded during the same sessions and released eight months prior), Amnesiac is an equally progressive statement of alt-rock reinvention. To celebrate the milestone we’ve collected cover versions of every track on Amnesiac as a nod to the album’s far-reaching impact. Not surprisingly, many genres (jazz, classical, bluegrass, etc) are represented here, and the songs are performed by artists both famous (Flaming Lips) and obscure (thanks YouTubers). Hope you enjoy…

The 2 I liked most.

The Fliips version of Knives out ain't too bad neither.

Radiohead announces 'King of Limbs' remix series

British rock group Radiohead announced on June 6 plans to follow up its eighth album, The King of Limbs, with a series of limited-edition 12-inch vinyl records featuring remixes from the LP.

The first record, available from XL/Ticker Tape in the UK and tbd Records in North America, in the series is due out on July 4 and will feature Canadian musician Caribou's remix of "Little Boy Blue" and a version of the album's lead single "Lotus Flower" by Canadian R&B and electronic producer Jacques Green. Both vinyl and digital formats will be available for purchase on the band's website. Details on other remixes in the series have yet to be announced but are expected to drop later this year.

Following the digital release of The King of Limbs in February, the band released a "newspaper album" featuring two 10-inch vinyl records, a CD, several large pieces of artwork, and 625 small pieces of artwork. The newspaper album also comes with a digital version available in two formats, priced at $48 (€33) for an MP3 and $53 (€36) for a WAV. Orders are available on the band’s website.

On July 1, Radiohead will also perform the new album in its entirety for a special 55-minute BBC broadcast called Radiohead - The King of Limbs: Live From The Basement in high definition. No details are yet available as to whether or not it will be available online.

The King of Limbs has reached the top ten in album charts in 21 countries, including number three in the US and seventh in the UK. The band's last LP, 2007's In Rainbows, reached number one on album charts in five countries, including the UK, the US, and France.

I won't be buying these -- but I thought I'd pass on the news ...

... And Happy Birthday Amnesiac -- can't believe it's been 10 years!

One of my favorite albums ever (and the soundtrack to 9/11 too!)

Radiohead releasing 'Live from the Basement' on DVD/Blu-Ray

Recorded out of Nigel Godrich's actual basement, the performance was among the very few live and televised moments the British band indulged in during their promotion of "The King of Limbs" this year. Due at "the end of January," the group announced that it would include all eight songs from their newest effort, plus the performances of unreleased “The Daily Mail” and “Staircase.” Additionally, “Supercollider" -- which did not air -- will be a bonus on the DVD/Blu-Ray collection. Those who purchase will get a digital download of the show and a 32-page hardcover book of photos from the TKoL recording sessions.

A digital version of "The King of Limbs: Live from the Basement" will be out through iTunes on Dec. 19, the same day purchasers get their download.

Radiohead announced the first dates of a worldwide tour, set to launch in North America in March, earlier this week.

I think Radiohead should go back to their alternative rock sounds of the mid 90s. I guess they can´t be labeled as "Rock" anymore. Not that their last few albums sound bad, is just that they are starting to sound very repetitive.

New Radiohead Album Coming Soon? Band Could Record By End Of The Summer

Colin Greenwood told BBC 6Music that his band will reconvene this year to record a new Radiohead album.

"We're taking some time out whilst people are doing some other stuff, doing their own things, and the plan is to get back together again [at the] end of the summer," Greenwood said whilst being extra British. This would be Radiohead's ninth album.

The "other stuff" Greenwood refers to likely includes lead singer Thom Yorke's side venture, Atoms for Peace. Yorke, producer Nigel Godrich and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea (of course) started playing together in 2009 under the moniker ??????; the band later became known as Atoms for Peace, and will release its first album on Feb. 25.

Greenwood's brother, Jonny Greenwood, has also been busy. The Radiohead guitarist is a popular composer, and he wrote the score for Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master."

Radiohead's last album, "The King of Limbs," arrived in 2011; the group debuted a new song, "Full Stop," last June on a tour stop in Chicago.
