Philip Selway – “Coming Up For Air” Video

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway is getting ready to release Weatherhouse, his second album as a solo singer-songwriter, and lead single "Coming Up For Air" is a fine piece of way-out psych-pop that sounds something like a song his band might've recorded during that stretch between The Bends and OK Computer. Selway's gleaming dome never… More »

Philip Selway – “Coming Up For Air”

Radiohead drummer Philip Selway will release Weatherhouse, his follow-up to 2010 solo debut Familial, this fall. The lead single is "Coming Up For Air," which could definitely pass for something Thom Yorke wrote except it's sung in breathy, slightly muted tones instead of quavering superhuman falsetto. It matches atmospherics with rhythmic tension to hypnotic effect,… More »

Phil Selway – “By Some Miracle” Video

The hushed and modest Phil Selway single "By Some Miracle" gets a minimal video with a (slight) twist ending. In fact, it reminded me a little bit of the video for "Just." The clip was directed by David Altobelli. He's also directed videos for M83 and School Of Seven Bells. More »

Yesterday we got a rare glimpse of Phil Selway singer-songwritering at one of the 7 Worlds Collide shows in Auckland this week.
