Day 253: Giving Up The Ghost by Radiohead

22 Feb

Yes, I know I’ve been featuring Radiohead a lot lately, but OH MY GOODNESS IS THIS CD GOOD!!!!

I’ve always been a huge Radiohead fan… ever since I was a little kid even! I grew up listening to OK Computer, The Bends, Hail To The Thief, and (of course) my favorite Kid A. Their last CD In Rainbows is in my top 10 favorite albums list, and it is still one of the best CDs I’ve ever heard!

I actually got to see Radiohead on their last tour, and while I checked that off my bucket list I will never forget how incredible it was. Just summing up my whole existence in one concert… it’s breathtaking.

So as I listen to The King Of Limbs, I feel all these emotions, just diluted down. The new-ness of this CD is still a little difficult for me to get used to, but I’m managing. And just when I thought that I’d lose hope for loving this CD as much as Kid A or In Rainbows, I heard “Giving Up The Ghost.”

I can’t even say anything about it, except that if this song was a person I’d already be in love.

Enjoy “Giving Up The Ghost” by Radiohead (and buy The King Of Limbs here)

Day 249: NEW RADIOHEAD!!!

18 Feb

Hey everyone!

BEST NEWS EVER FOR TODAY AND EVER.

So, a band I’ve featured a few times on this website (aka Radiohead) had announced on Monday that they were not only done with their new CD but that they were going to release the digital version of it on this Saturday (aka tomorrow). Needless to say, I kind of freaked out when I heard the news… the last update they made was back in July of 2010, so this of course was a huge shocker to me.

Well, more good news came from the band early (and I mean EARLY) this morning when they decided to release their new album a whole day early. Yeah, that’s right. The King Of Limbs (2011) is now available here (if’n you’re like me and want to buy it… the hard copy comes out on March 28th!

ANYWAY, NPR streamed the whole album this morning, and even at only about 35 minutes, the CD is solid work!

I love it already and I’ve only listened to it twice.

You guys are in luck! I’ll post a link to the site that has the whole album streaming right now, so go check it out! (My favorite song is called “Morning Mr. Magpie”)

If you’re too lazy to go check it out on your own, watch this creepy video for their song “Lotus Flower” (featuring the lovely Mr. Thom Yorke!)

ENJOY!!!!

Also, I’d like to mention that I really appreciate all of my family and friends who are getting me through some hard times. It really doesn’t take much to make me smile, but it does help a lot. Thanks everyone :)
