Radiohead Gifted The World with a Special Christmas Present This Year

by

In the months leading up to the release of ‘Spectre’, the 24th instalment in the James Bond movie franchise, Radiohead emerged as the favourites to compose the film’s theme song. Ultimately, producers opted for Sam Smith’s theme, but the rumours were not unfounded.

But this Christmas, Radiohead delivered us with a special gift in the form of an unused track (that’s available as a free download on their Soundcloud). Listen to it NOW.

Roman GianArthur & Janelle Monáe Turn Radiohead Into An R&B Soulful Jam

by

Roman GianArthur is a member of Janelle Monáe’s Wondaland Arts Society, the group of Atlanta R&B weirdos that also counts “Classic Man” singer Jidenna among its ranks.

GianArthur’s latest trick is OK Lady, an EP of Radiohead covers mashed up with D’Angelo covers and reimagined as art-damaged R&B. We’ve chosen to highlight his cover of ‘No Surprises’ featuring #bosslady Janelle Monáe.

Are you sitting in silence right now and looking for something to fill the void?

I recommend hitting play on Atu’s new single, ‘Till Then’.

Jordan Rakei: Bodysnatchers

by

I’m always interested to find out an artist’s musical influences. There’s always the answers you expect to hear that everyone is a fan of – particularly when they’ve been pigeon-holed into a specific genre so usually they will list the artists that you want to hear.

In this particular write-up, that wasn’t the case.

Brisbane’s Jordan Rakei has listed Radiohead as one of his favourite bands and yesterday, he released a cover of one of his favourite songs, Bodysnatchers.

Product Review: UE BOOM

by

The new Ultimate Ears BOOM has some serious sound going on.

And by that, I mean that it’s LOUD.

The speaker not only looks simple in design but music emanates from 360 degrees, transforming the space around you into a lively and enveloping soundstage.

The UE BOOM has been developed for a deep, rich sound and with its simple cylindrical design, it features just four simple buttons (power, volume functions and the Bluetooth connection), and delivers optimal sound quality no matter where it’s placed in the room.

Its Bluetooth functionality also means you can wirelessly link it to your smartphone, laptop or tablet device.
