New Thom Yorke: "Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses"
As always you will find the newest in Radiohead related news. "Feeling Pulled Apart By Horses" is a "radical rework of an old tune thats been kicking around without a home since 2001". "Reckoner" (a personal favorite off In Rainbows) was said to be born from the same song (not seeing that). I am really digging this though. It is not going to be for everyone and seems pretty experimental and not fully polished for a full single release, but the bassline is dancey, groovy and the rhythm just builds and plays all around it. Feels like Eraser (Thom Yorke's solo album) mixed with Hail to the Thief.
Check out the old tune below and see if you see any lingering similarities.
Finally the b-side off the new single, "The Hollow Earth". This feels like a b-side to Eraser - not getting me too excited. But still new Radiohead continues to be better than 99% of the stuff out there - just not so great for Radiohead.
