Hear Willow Smith Sample Radiohead

Fun fact: Last year, Jaden Smith, the Karate Kid remake star and the son of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, released The Cool Cafe, a mixtape where he rapped over Purity Ring samples. Apparently, some sort of Solange-esque indie awakening is sweeping through the younger generation of the Smith family. Jaden's sister Willow, of… More »

Watch Frank Ocean Cover Radiohead’s “Fake Plastic Trees”

Frank Ocean continues to own our soul. Last Thursday, the man played a short set at a press conference for Spotify. And during that set, he broke out a minute-and-a-half cover of Radiohead's 1995 all-timer "Fake Plastic Trees," using it to flex that buttery croon over luxuriant synth-pillows. It's too short, it's a crappy… More »

When I was a teenager, I had a little bit of a "everything Radiohead" phase. I didn't take it as far as my friend David -- a dude who regularly eBay'd Japanese import singles and once made a computer program to ensure we got tickets to Radiohead's pre-In Rainbows small theater tour -- but I… More »

Atoms For Peace AMOK Details

A couple of years ago, Thom Yorke formed a new band so that he could tour his solo stuff; it had the head-spinning lineup of Flea, Nigel Godrich, Joey Waronker, and Mauro Refosco.

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 »

The 10 Best Indie Rock Documentaries

In a perfect world, all albums would be self-contained universes. A good album can communicate complex emotions and ideas with the aid of just a little context; a great album can communicate beautiful ambiguities with none. All you have to do is listen closely.

Billy Corgan Says Soundgarden, Pavement Came Back “Only To Make Money”

The Billy Corgan/Soundgarden beef has been going on at least since that falling out at Lolla '94, and the Corgan/Pavement beef has had legs since the "Range Life" dig that same year. And man, nobody holds a grudge like BC. In an interview given prior to a show in the Philippines last… More »

The Darkness – “Street Spirit” (Radiohead Cover)

I kinda feel like the Darkness don't do themselves any favors. They take every cliche in the Spinal Tap playbook, blow it up to Jumbotron proportions, and add assless chaps. I mean, just look at that album cover. But here's the thing: They're fantastic songwriters and musicians. I genuinely love and listen to both their… More »
