Phil Selway ushered in his solo recording career with last year’s LP Familial. The Radiohead drummer held back four tracks written for that album’s recording sessions, and has re-recorded them with a full band for a separate, new EP titled Running Blind.

I wouldn’t say this is particularly for fans of Radiohead’s music — theremin (or Ondes Martenot) aside — but it is absolutely for fans of Radiohead’s personnel. “This could be the last chance, open your eyes / call a truce, we’re scared, running blind,” my friends:
