So it seems this is a trend lately. Radiohead. More Radiohead. A smattering more of some Radiohead. Oh, and some Thom Yorke tossed in for good measure. Well, deal with it! They are pretty much awesome. Not lying. So for this week? Let's just say I've got some lovely stuff for you.
If you ask around, I am sure you will get a varied response as to what a person's favorite Radiohead song is. I mean, their body of work is ridiculously large, and save for their debut album of Pablo Honey, you will probably hear any number of songs off of any album mentioned as a favorite. For me, it is one song that stands out on an album that - like most of their albums - took a lot of time to grow on me. Kid A really struck me as very different initially. "Idioteque" was one of those songs that blew me away initially, though, and it still does. Last year, deluxe versions of many of their old albums were released, including this one, and there is a wonderful live version of this track on BBC One Sessions. Enjoy it.

Last week, you'll recall that I threw a new track by Holy Fuck up on our little corner of the internet. Well, unbeknownst to me, they have remixed the track "Nude" off of their wonderful In Rainbows album. Of all of the remixes I've heard, I have gravitated to this one the most. You guys be the judge of this one.

And damnit, I love that Idioteque track so much, that I've even posted the video for you guys here. Creepy video, but it has a strong message. And hell, considering all that's out there? I don't even know if this is the actual music video. Whatever. I like it!
Buy stuff. It's the American way. Go into debt. That sorta stuff.
