Jonny Greenwood Shares Update On Radiohead’s Recording Sessions

Jonny Greenwood broke that silence today, though, with an interview in Indian newspaper The Sunday Guardian. Here's what Greenwood had to say about Radiohead's progress:… More »

Jonny Greenwood, Gaz Coombes, & Danny Goffey – “Spooks” (Feat. Joanna Newsom) (Stereogum Premiere)

When Radiohead debuted "Spooks" back in 2006, it was a rollicking guitar-powered instrumental the likes of which the band hadn't tackled since "Electioneering." (Actually, the closest corollary in the band's discography is probably the Bends-era B-side "The Trickster.") Now Jonny Greenwood plus former Supergrass members Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey have reworked the song for… More »

Jonny Greenwood has been writing classical music for some time now, and his latest work "Water" is being performed by the Australian Chamber Orchestra this fall.

Johnny Greenwood & Supergrass Reworked Radiohead Rarity “Spooks” For Inherent Vice

Slate reports that Inherent Vice, Paul Thomas Anderson's new film that was scored by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, contains an unreleased Radiohead instrumental called "Spooks," which the band began playing live during the In Rainbows era. The film, which is narrated by Joanna Newsom's character Sortilège, was screened this weekend at the New York Film… More »

Videos from Jonny Greenwood's recent orchestral performances have been gradually leaking out of late, some of which contain music from Greenwood's score for Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film, Inherent Vice, based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon.

Hear Jonny Greenwood Perform At Big Ears Festival ’14

In addition to headliners Steve Reich, Television, and John Cale, one of the big draws for this past weekend's Big Ears Festival (which focuses primarily on experimental music) was Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood performing with the Wordless Music Orchestra. The set was recorded by a fan and you can hear some of it now. Two pieces,… More »

Watch Jonny Greenwood Debut “Loop” At London Power Station

Over the weekend, the Radiohead guitarist and Paul Thomas Anderson film-score composer Jonny Greenwood performed at London's Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, a 124-year-old facility built to power machinery across London. It's easy to imagine that the idea of old, clanking, outmoded technology helped spark "Loop," the piece of music he debuted there. Performing with the… More »

Jonny Greenwood Scoring Inherent Vice

Movie buffs and fans of postmodernist lit have been waiting a while now for Inherent Vice. After the 2012 stunner The Master P.T. Anderson set his sights on an even bigger challenge: adapting a book by Thomas Pynchon. The mysterious writer's knotty and overwhelmingly dense body of work makes him practically the poster boy for… More »

Big Ears Festival 2014 Lineup

Since 2009 the Big Ears Festival has brought a massive slate of experimental music to Knoxville, Tennessee, and they've just announced their lineup for next spring (the festival occurs during the weekend of March 28-30). It's kind of hard to contain my excitement here since I'm a sucker for this sort of thing, but if… More »

Radiohead Albums From Worst To Best

"Big things have small beginnings." So says Michael Fassbender's character in Prometheus. He was referring to a blob of alien goo that would go on to spawn the monster that drives the Alien series, but he just as easily could've been talking about Radiohead.   Like that daub of black goo, Radiohead's origins were inauspicious. The band --… More »

Jonny Greenwood – “Application 45 Version 1″

There Will Be Blood would have been a seriously disquieting movie even if Rogers & Hammerstein had done the soundtrack, but Radiohead "guitarist" Jonny Greenwood's insanity-inducing score amped up the disturbing to 11. Greenwood has teamed with Paul Thomas Anderson again for the director's forthcoming The Master, a film officially not about Scientology or L. More »

Preview Jonny Greenwood’s Score For Paul Thomas Anderson’s The Master

Paul Thomas Anderson's new film, The Master, revolves around a faith leader known as "The Master" (Philip Seymour Hoffman) and a man named Freddie Sutton (Joaquin Phoenix) who becomes his unlikely associate.

Jonny Greenwood Scoring PT Anderson’s The Master

Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and Paul Thomas Anderson are set to collaborate again for the director's new, Joaquin Phoenix-starring film operating under the working title The Master. Among the contributors to the soundtrack is the British jazz group Zed-U. Hopefully, Greenwood's Oscar bid won't be derailed for an obscure technicality this time around; The MasterMore »

Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood & DOOM – “Retarded Fren”

On a track with the perfectly ridiculous title "Retarded Fren," Radiohead gentlemen Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood have hooked up with a somewhat unlikely collaborator, masked indie-rap hero DOOM. On the track, DOOM kicks his trademark slurry free-associative wordplay over wobbly bass-music subs and jittery strings that sound like they jumped straight from Greenwood's ThereMore »

Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom, NYC 9/28/11

Though I have my reservations about The King Of Limbs and, like most people, revere the back catalog enough to be considered "formative" of personal experience listening to alternative music, I had realistic expectations for Wednesday night's Radiohead show, the first of two at NYC's Roseland ballroom. After all, this isn't the band from MeetingMore »

Watch Aphex Twin, Jonny Greenwood Perform In Poland

This past weekend in Wroclaw, Poland, both Radiohead multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood and enigmatic electronic eminence Aphex Twin debuted new orchestral works alongside the hard-to-spell Polish avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki. Greenwood and Aphex both debuted works that remixed or reworked older works from Penderecki, and both of them joined an orchestra onstage to perform those works. More »
