Car Seat Headrest – “Pyramid Song” (Radiohead Cover)
Car Seat Headrest’s music conjures so many of history’s great rock bands, but Radiohead has never been one of them. Yet here’s Will Toledo doing a flamenco-inflected cover of astral Amnesiac piano ballad “Pyramid Song,” and it’s as rad as we’ve come to expect from this guy. As Pitchfork points out, Toledo put the cover on Tumblr last week, and it trades his usual heavily orchestrated multi-track bombast for simple lo-fi minimalism. Check it out.
