dear iTunes listener . . . this is just some stuff that really floats my boats at the moment. the list is meant to be played from start to finish in the order you see it with a slight crossfade set in the preferences of 4 seconds like an old mix tape. err . . . maybe. XX love thom
- 1. "I've Hardly Been" by Stephen Malkmus: "genius non-generic nutville not rock music. should have been a hit. i guess this compilation is POP music – at least it is to me . . . with the best guitar solo that never happened . . . "
- 2. "No Hope Before Destruction" by The Dears: "i heard this a while ago and it has stuck in my head ever since. the way the voice comes in and your speakers freak out. and what he's saying. it sounds all soppy, oh but then all hell breaks loose. i don't know much else by them."
- 3. "Closer" by Quasimoto & Madvillain: "quasimoto and madvillain have done some amazing records. madvillain has the best rhymes . . . nursery rhymes mixed with stream of consciousness and venim and straight observation that read like poems. and quasimoto's way of constructing tracks is like nothing else."
Wow did not expect this...
from Thom Yorke seems like he's a fan of Madvillain very reminiscent of 90s trip hop.
to me it is obvious that someone like Thom Yorke would appreciate a producer like Madlib aka Quasimoto and a rapper like MF Doom, RESPECT!!!!! would love to hear Thom and Madlib colabo's!!!Make it happen somebody!!!!
God, I love you, Thom <3
Honestly, I expected this to resemble Radiohead and all it's glory, but I was pleasantly surprised and impressed. I absolutely adore an artist who can create amazing music in one genre and feel comfortable on the opposite end of the spectrum. That's some skill there. Seriously.
