There are plenty of reviews of the new album “The King of Limbs” so I don’t feel like I need to rehash what’s been said. If you want you can check out the reviews of Rolling Stone, the Telegraph, and my friend Barry. I love what they are doing on these songs and there is a lot to listen to but I think they might be teasing us for something to come. The album itself doesn’t really sound like a comprehensive work like their previous releases. The first 5 tracks have a similar sound to them but then the final 3 stand alone as unique one off tunes. Maybe they are teasing us for something to come… I’m not much of a conspiracy theorist but it wouldn’t surprise me by any means.
On Feb 11. Radiohead posted something on twitter that was a link to what they called an “office chart” which looks a lot like a track list of working titles. The list of 10 names is:
1.Fog (Jamie xx Remix) Nosaj Thing Drift (Remixed)
2.Tripped Up Ramadanman Re-Edit Shortstuff Mickey Pearce
3. Sun Days Macc & dgoHn
4. Keep Time Shed
5. Chromatic Fantasia and Fugue in D Minor, BWV 903: Fantasia Christophe Rousset Bach: Harpsichord Works
6. SP Morgan Zarate
7. Chazm Julio Bashmore
8. Seamonkey (Untold Remix) Moderat
9. Stereo Freeze Untold
10. 7c 1020 Macc & dgoHn
None of these titles look to be on the new release not to mention there are only 8 tracks on King of Limbs. We’ll see what happens over the next couple weeks to see if Radiohead continues to blow our mind but until something happens I am perfectly happy listening to the new stuff.
