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 »

Watch Umphrey’s McGee’s Straight-Faced Mash Up Of Radiohead, Beck, & Phil Collins

The terrifyingly popular Indiana jam-band Umphrey’s McGee play an annual mash-up show every year on Halloween, combining covers live and wearing mash-up costumes.

Thom Yorke DJ’d For 8 People At Leopallooza

Leopallooza is a tiny music festival in Cornwall, England described by organizers as “The greatest house party… in a field.” It’s so tiny, in fact, that at about 2:30AM Saturday night the number of people remaining on site dwindled to single digits.
