The album finds the Haitian born, Montreal raised producer delivering on the promise of his early self-released EPs and remixes.Since the age of fourteen, when he first began to DJ and when his brother introduced him to music production software, his output has been relentless. He explains, “after he showed me the basics, from that day on I couldn’t stop making beats,” pumping out a handful of tracks per day for the next couple of years.Having released singles like ‘Drive Me Crazy‘ with Vic Mensa and ‘Leave Me Alone‘ with Shay Lia, Kaytranada has since cemented his reputation and his sound; an undeniable swing of the drums comparable to Dilla’s, a signature soulful touch in the melodies, and a healthy dose of funky bass lines.99.9% features guest turns from Anderson .Paak, Vic Mensa, Little Dragon, Syd, Craig David, Goldlink, Alunageorge, BADBADNOTGOOD and many more.

Genre:Rock / Indie
In Rainbows, as a title, implies a sense of comfort and delightfulness. Symbolically, rainbows are more likely to be associated with kittens and warm blankets than the grim and glum circumstances Radiohead is known for soundtracking. There's a slight, if expected, twist at play. The band is more than familiar with the unpleasant moods associated with colors like red, green, and blue -- all of which, of course, are colors within a rainbow -- all of which are present, and even mentioned, during the album. On a couple levels, then, In Rainbows is not any less fitting as a Radiohead album title than "Myxomatosis" is as a Radiohead song title. Despite references to "going off the rails," hitting "the bottom," getting "picked over by the worms," being "dead from the neck up," and feeling "trapped" (twice), along with Radiohead Wordplay Deluxe Home Edition pieces like "comatose" and "nightmare" -- in the same song! double score! -- the one aspect of the album that becomes increasingly perceptible with each listen is how romantic it feels, albeit in the way that one might find the bioport scenes in David Cronenberg's eXistenZ to be extremely hot and somewhat unsettling. Surprisingly, some of the album's lyrics are even more personal/universal and straightforward than anything on The Eraser, the album made by Thom Yorke and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. "I'm an animal trapped in your hot car," from "All I Need," has to be one of the saddest, most open-hearted metaphors used to express unrequited love. "House of Cards" begins with "I don't want to be your friend/I just want to be your lover/No matter how it ends/No matter how it starts," and the one with the worms includes "I'd be crazy not to follow/Follow where you lead/Your eyes/They turn me." This effective weaving of disparate elements -- lyrical expressions commonly associated with the band, mixed in with ones suited for everyday love ballads -- goes for the music as well. The album is very song-oriented, with each track constantly moving forward and developing, yet there are abstract electronic layers and studio-as-instrument elements to prevent it from sounding like a regression. In Rainbows will hopefully be remembered as Radiohead's most stimulating synthesis of accessible songs and abstract sounds, rather than their first pick-your-price download. - allmusic.com

Featuring Remastered OK COMPUTER, B-Sides and Three Never Before Released Tracks: “I Promise,” “Lift,” “Man Of War” .Rescued from defunct formats, prised from dark cupboards and brought to light after two decades in cold storage… OKNOTOK will be issued on June 23rd through XL Recordings, coinciding (roughly) with the original 1997 release date(s) of Radiohead’s landmark third album OK COMPUTER.OKNOTOK features the original OK COMPUTER twelve track album, eight B-sides, and the Radiohead completist’s dream: “I Promise,” “Lift,” and “Man Of War.” The original studio recordings of these three previously unreleased and long sought after OK COMPUTER era tracks finally receive their first official issue on OKNOTOK. All material on OKNOTOK is newly remastered from the original analogue tapes. OK COMPUTER was originally released on various dates ranging from May to July 1997. Produced by the band and Nigel Godrich, the album features the singles “Paranoid Android,” “Karma Police,” “Lucky” and “No Surprises,” and is widely cited as one of the greatest works of Radiohead’s--or any artist’s—catalogue. OK COMPUTER was the first Radiohead record to reach #1 in the UK and to be nominated for the Album of the Year GRAMMY. In 2015, The National Recording Registry selected OK COMPUTER to be preserved in the Library of Congress as a recording that has proven “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant.”

"Tomorrow's Modern Boxes", das zweite Soloalbum von Radiohead-Sänger Thom Yorke, erschien 2014zunächst nur digital und limitiert als Deluxe-Vinyl. Nun hat er sich entschlossen, es regulär über XLRecordings erhältlich zu machen. "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes" enthält acht Songs und war nach dem letztenRadiohead-Album "The King Of Limbs" (2011) sowie dem Atoms For Peace-Werk "Atom" (2013) das ersteneue Material aus der Feder von Yorke. Schon auf seinem Solo-Debüt "The Eraser" von 2006 eröffnete derAusnahmekünstler unglaubliche Klanggebilde, die denen von Radiohead nicht allzu fern waren. Auch aufdem zweiten Album sind mit Bassist Colin Greenwood und vor allem Produzent Nigel Godrich zwei wichtigePartner aus dem Radiohead-Kosmos beteiligt. Yorke selber hat für dieses Album Stücke geschrieben, diesich wieder eindeutig den eingespielten Hörgewohnheiten entziehen. Intensiv, zuweilen ein wenig dunkler alsbislang und - auch wenn man glaubte, am maximal Möglichen schon angelangt zu sein - noch ein wenigintrovertierter und versponnener als zuvor.

Overmono return to XL Recordings with their second EP in March 2017. Arla II is the follow up to last year's debut Arla EP and further crystallizes the duo's immense & innovative sound. This latest 6-tracker from Ed & Tom Russell (known respectively for their solo Tessela and Truss projects) carries things forward from its predecessor in underscoring Overmono as a fully formed & ongoing project.Instead of searching for commonalities between their earlier individual work, Overmono combines the Russells' artistic talents in order to reach the spaces between ambient, techno & UK hardcore dynamics that few current acts are capable of reaching. Born of the brothers' collective creative impulse and staking out its own defined place in the contemporary landscape of electronic music, Overmono are firmly amongst those pushing the form into new and exciting places. All of this is now also being explored in a live setting. Having made their debut at Krakow's experimental electronic music festival, Unsound in October 2016, Overmono will be performing a number of live and DJ dates throughout 2017.

Radiohead's admittedly assumed dilemma: how to push things forward using just the right amounts of the old and the older in order to please both sides of the divide? Taking advantage of their longest running time to date, enough space is provided to quench the thirsts of resolute Bends devotees without losing the adventurous drive or experimentation that eventually got the group into hot water with many of those same listeners. Guitars churn and chime and sound like guitars more often than not; drums are more likely to be played by a human; and discernible verses are more frequently trailed by discernible choruses. So, whether or not the group is to be considered "back," there is a certain return to relatively traditional songcraft. Had the opening "2 + 2 = 5" and "Sit Down. Stand Up." been made two years before, each song's slowly swelling intensity would have plateaued a couple minutes in, functioning as mood pieces without any release; instead, each boils over into its own cathartic tantrum. The spook-filled "Sail to the Moon," one of several songs featuring prominent piano, rivals "Street Spirit" and hovers compellingly without much sense of force carrying it along. Somewhat ironically, minus a handful of the more conventionally structured songs, the album would be almost as fractured, remote, and challenging as Amnesiac. "Backdrifts" and "The Gloaming" feature nervous electronic backdrops, while the emaciated "We Suck Young Blood" is a laggard processional that, save for one outburst, shuffles along uneasily. At nearly an hour in length, this album doesn't unleash the terse blow delivered by its two predecessors. However, despite the fact that it seems more like a bunch of songs on a disc rather than a singular body, its impact is substantial. Regardless of all the debates surrounding the group, Radiohead have entered a second decade of record-making with a surplus of momentum. - allmusic.com

Release:2016 / UK – Original
Genre:Rock / Indie
Away with the mystics, here it is: Radiohead's ninth long player combining art rock and psychedilc folk.A cursory glance at A Moon Shaped Pool may suggest a certain measure of indifference on the part of Radiohead. Its 11 songs are sequenced in alphabetical order -- a stunt befitting a Pixies concert or perhaps a Frank Black box set, not a proper album -- and many of these tunes are of an older vintage: the group began work on the opening "Burn the Witch" at the turn of the century, while the closing "True Love Waits" first appeared in concerts way back in 1995. These are the elements of a clearinghouse, but with Radiohead appearances are always deceiving. A Moon Shaped Pool doesn't play like an ill-considered collection of leftovers; it unfurls with understated ease, each silvery song shimmering into the next. The pulse rarely quickens and the arrangements seldom agitate, yet the album never quite feels monochromatic. Sly, dissonant strings grace some cuts, acoustic guitars provide a pastoral counterpoint to an electronic pulse, Thom Yorke's voice floats through the music, often functioning as nothing more than an element of a mix; what he's saying matters not as much as how he murmurs. Such subtle, shifting textures emphasize Radiohead's musicianship, a point underscored when this version of "True Love Waits" is compared to its 2001 incarnation. There, Yorke accompanied himself with a simple acoustic guitar and he seemed earnest and yearning, but here, supported by piano and strings, he sounds weary and weathered, a man who has lost his innocence. What he and Radiohead have gained, however, is some measure of maturity, and with this, their music has deepened. Certainly, sections of A Moon Shaped Pool contain an eerie, disconcerting glimmer, usually attained through power kept in reserve -- nothing stabs as hard as the sawing fanfare of "Burn the Witch," while the winding, intersecting guitars that conclude "Identikit" provide the noisiest element -- yet the album as a whole doesn't feel unsettling. Instead, there's a melancholic comfort to its ebb and flow, a gentle rocking motion that feels comforting; it's a tonic to the cloistered, scattered King of Limbs and even the sleek alienation of Kid A. Radiohead are recognizably the same band that made that pioneering piece of electronica-rock but they're older and wiser on A Moon Shaped Pool, deciding not to push at the borders of their sound but rather settle into the territory they've marked as their own. This may not result in a radical shift in sound but rather a welcome change in tone: for the first time Radiohead feel comfortable in their own skin. - allmusic.com

Den britischen Musiker und Filmkomponisten Jonathan "Jonny" Richard Guy Greenwood kennen die meistenals Mitglied von Radiohead. Hier ist er neben Thom Yorke maßgeblich für den Sound der Bandverantwortlich. Obwohl Greenwood einer der besten Gitarristen der Welt ist, besitzt er ein unstillbaresInteresse an Klangerzeugern aller Art, von Effektgeräten über Synthesizer bis hin zu exotischen Instrumentenwie dem Ondes Martenot. Diese Neugier spiegelt sich auch in dem rund 45-minütigen Soundtrack zumdokumentarischen Kunstfilm "Bodysong" aus dem Jahr 2003 wider. In diesem warf Regisseur Simon Pummeleinen avantgardistischen und sprecherfreien Blick auf das menschliche Leben. "Bodysong" vereint virtuoseKlangexperimente zwischen "Bitches Brew" und Philip Glass, DJ Shadow und Neoklassik, die mittraditionellen Songstrukturen wenig gemein haben. Greenwood spielte das Soundmaterial im Alleingang ein,weshalb das Werk allgemein als Soloalbum Greenwoods angesehen wird.

Die Elektro-Soul-Schwestern mit wunderschönem, politisch reflektiertem zweitenAlbum.Auf ihrem Debütalbum beschäftigten sich die beiden Zwillingsschwestern Lisa-Kaindé und Naomi Díaz nochmit ihrer Vergangenheit. "Ibeyi" brachte dem französisch-kubanischen Elektro-Soul-Duo 2015 viele Fans einund zog Kollaborationen mit prominenten Künstlern wie Beyoncé und Alvin Ailey nach sich. Dagegenpräsentiert sich "Ash" als aktuelles politisches Statement, das die beiden ganz im Hier und Jetzt zeigt.Themen sind unter anderem Polizeigewalt und Rassismus. Bei ihren Lyrics waren die Schwestern nieschüchtern, persönliche Wahrnehmungen und Erfahrungen sind der Gradmesser. Diesen geben sie aufEnglisch, Französisch, Yoruba und nun erstmals auch Spanisch einen Ausdruck. Dabei ist Naomi für diePercussion-Instrumente Cajón und Batá verantwortlich, Lisa spielt Piano und einige elektronischeKlangerzeuger. Sie übernimmt auch den Großteil des Leadgesangs. Hinzu kommen Gastmusiker wie ChillyGonzales, Meshell Ndegeocello, Kamasi Washington am Saxophon und die Rapperin Mala Rodríguez.Abgerundet wird das Ganze durch raffinierte Samples, zum Beispiel die meditativen Stimmen desFrauenchors Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares oder Auszüge einer Rede der ehemaligen First Lady MichelleObama. "Ash" wurde mit Richard Russell, dem Chef von XL, in dessen Studio produziert.

In gewisser Weise ein Triptychon: Jedenfalls scheint die künstlerische Entwicklung von Alejandro Ghersi, diemit seinem Debüt "Xen" 2014 begann und 2015 mit "Mutant" ihren Lauf nahm, 2017 durch dieVeröffentlichung von "Arca" einen Abschluss gefunden zu haben. Das dritte Album des in Venezuelageborenen und in London lebenden Künstlers ist die erste Veröffentlichung auf dem britischen Indie-LabelXL. Sie wurde von langen Spaziergängen über einen viktorianischen Friedhof im Abney Park inspiriert. DerFriedhof ist einer der größten Londons und ein Treffpunkt der Schwulenszene. Auf älteren Mixtapes hörteman Arca bereits rappen, nun hat er seinen Klangkosmos auch "offiziell" um die eigene Gesangsstimmeerweitert. Darin dürfte auch der Grund zu sehen sein, warum Arca seinen dritten Langspieler nach sich selbstbenannt hat. Schließlich ist dieser musikalisch und vor allem textlich extrem persönlich geworden. Spanischist die Sprache seiner Jugend und die Sprache, die ihn am meisten geprägt hat - im Positiven wie Negativen.Wie schon bei den beiden vorangegangen Werken stammt das Artwork von Jesse Kanda. Passenderweisegeht das Cover weg von der digitalen Abstraktion, hin zum Portrait. Es zeigt den Künstler als verwundetenMatador mit mechanischen Beinen und hölzernem Korsett.

For their third release in 13 months, Radiohead let loose a mini-album of live material culled from four European dates and slapped them together into their standard excellent packaging adorned with manic drawings, scribbles, and text excerpts. I Might Be Wrong: Live Recordings, originally scheduled as a single for "I Might Be Wrong," is precisely what the title implies, a compilation of recordings and not a live album at all. While it seems as though Radiohead could have made it into a cohesive album if they had wanted to, or at least made this one sound like it was one show, what listeners find here is an uneven and incoherent set of Kid A sessions material that is sometimes strong but sometimes uninspired. When strong, the band seems as if it's in command by adding new texture and content. "Like Spinning Plates," "Everything in Its Right Place," and "Idioteque" are revelatory and at times feel almost new. Meanwhile, the track "I Might Be Wrong" just doesn't match in sound quality to the others, as the bass is completely lost and the additional percussion is way upfront. There are some serious benefits to be reaped from this collection, though. For those unlucky enough to not have seen any of the world tour of 2001, it is a serious treat to hear these studio-crafted songs played live (which also proves Radiohead are still a powerful rock band). But the real gift here is the last track, "True Love Waits." As yet to find itself on any of their singles or albums but played live for a number of years, it's easily one of Thom Yorke's most morose songs, but it's also one of his most powerful. In the end, it's a matter of Radiohead making some strange plays with the material that was recorded during the Kid A sessions. While the initial release of Kid A seemed logical and insanely cohesive, subsequent releases of that material (Amnesiac, Live Recordings) are incomplete. It might have been wiser to release Amnesiac and some of the material from this release as a complete Kid A sessions package, rather than a couple of thrown-together releases. - allmusic.com

Using the textured soundscapes of The Bends as a launching pad, Radiohead delivered another startlingly accomplished set of modern guitar rock with OK Computer. The anthemic guitar heroics present on Pablo Honey and even The Bends are nowhere to be heard here. Radiohead have stripped away many of the obvious elements of guitar rock, creating music that is subtle and textured yet still has the feeling of rock & roll. Even at its most adventurous -- such as the complex, multi-segmented "Paranoid Android" -- the band is tight, melodic, and muscular, and Thom Yorke's voice effortlessly shifts from a sweet falsetto to vicious snarls. It's a thoroughly astonishing demonstration of musical virtuosity and becomes even more impressive with repeated listens, which reveal subtleties like electronica rhythms, eerie keyboards, odd time signatures, and complex syncopations. Yet all of this would simply be showmanship if the songs weren't strong in themselves, and OK Computer is filled with moody masterpieces, from the shimmering "Subterranean Homesick Alien" and the sighing "Karma Police" to the gothic crawl of "Exit Music (For a Film)." OK Computer is the album that establishes Radiohead as one of the most inventive and rewarding guitar rock bands of the '90s. - allmusic.com

Release:1994 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
Pablo Honey in no way was adequate preparation for its epic, sprawling follow-up, The Bends. Building from the sweeping, three-guitar attack that punctuated the best moments of Pablo Honey, Radiohead create a grand and forceful sound that nevertheless resonates with anguish and despair -- it's cerebral anthemic rock. Occasionally, the album displays its influences, whether it's U2, Pink Floyd, R.E.M., or the Pixies, but Radiohead turn clichés inside out, making each song sound bracingly fresh. Thom Yorke's tortured lyrics give the album a melancholy undercurrent, as does the surging, textured music. But what makes The Bends so remarkable is that it marries such ambitious, and often challenging, instrumental soundscapes to songs that are at their cores hauntingly melodic and accessible. It makes the record compelling upon first listen, but it reveals new details with each listen, and soon it becomes apparent that with The Bends, Radiohead have reinvented anthemic rock. - allmusic.com

LP | 2015 | UK | Original (XL Recordings)

Release:2015 / UK – Original
Genre:Hip Hop
Somewhere between the cuteness of Shamir and the scariness of Mykki Blanco you will find New York’s Le1f, a ballet dancer-turned-producer-turned rapper. Although his out-ness is a big part of the appeal of this warped and edgy party album (“Fuck you, nigga, I fuck boys,” Le1f raps on Grace, Alek, Naomi, a tribute to black supermodels), the nod to riot grrrl in its title hints at far wider-ranging agendas within. The beauty of dark skin tones recurs on Swirl, an ode to interracial curiosity featuring Brazilian air horns, icy digitals and guest verses. T the more downbeat Cheap ponders the necessity of money over two warring chiptune hooks. In among the trap beats, buttery sonics and Autotune, Le1f does a particularly fine line in painful candour, conflating the rejection of would-be lovers with the wider humiliation of not being picked up by racist cab drivers. - The Guardian.

LP | 2008 | UK | Reissue (XL Recordings)

Release:2008 / UK – Reissue
Genre:Rock / Indie
A Modern Guilt reissue!Compared to the waves of grief on Sea Change, Modern Guilt trips easily, as this is a deft tapestry of drum loops, tape splices, and chugging guitars pitched halfway between new wave and Sonic Youth. This may not brood but it's impossible to deny its heaviness, either in its tone or its lyrics. Beck peppers Modern Guilt with allusions to jets, warheads, suicide, all manners of modern maladies, and if the words don't form coherent pictures, the lines that catch the ear create a vivid portrait of unease, a vibe that Danger Mouse mirrors with his densely wound yet spare production. As on his work with Albarn and the Black Keys, Danger Mouse doesn't impose his own aesthetic as much as he finds a way to make it fit with Beck's, so everything here feels familiar, whether it's the swinging '60s spy riff on "Gamma Ray," the rangy blues on "Soul of Man," the stiff shuffle of the title track, or the thick and gauzy "Chemtrails," which harks back to the sluggish, narcotic psychedelia of Mutations. Danger Mouse assists not only with execution but with focus, pulling in Modern Guilt at just over half an hour, which is frankly a relief after the unending sprawl of The Information and Guero. Its leanness is one of the greatest attributes of Modern Guilt, as every song stays as long as it needs to, then lingers behind in memory, leaving behind a collection of echoes and impressions. If anything, Modern Guilt may be just a little bit too transient, as it doesn't dig quite as deep as its subjects might suggest, but that's also par for the course for both Beck and Danger Mouse: they tend to prefer feel to form. Here, they deliver enough substance and style to make Modern Guilt an effective dosage of 21st century paranoia.

Sie gelten als stilprägendste britische Band der 90er-Jahre und haben sich mit Alben wie "The Bends" und"OK Computer" in jede 90er-Jahre-Best-of-Liste gespielt. Die Rede ist natürlich von Radiohead. Die 1986 inOxford von Sänger Thom Yorke gegründete Band veröffentlicht mit "The King Of Limbs" ihr achtesStudioalbum. Die acht Stücke des Albums wurden erneut vom Erfolgsproduzenten und Quasi-BandmitgliedNigel Godrich betreut, der bereits "OK Computer" produzierte. Die Internetplattform "Laut.de" urteilte: "Mitjedem Durchlauf wächst der tiefe Schatten, den Radiohead mit ihrer zeitdiagnostischen Qualität samteigenbrötlerischen Veröffentlichungswillen auf die Musikindustrie geworfen haben, bis zur unbezwingbarenGröße heran."

Denver based Gila’s background as a jazz drummer as well as his involvement as one-half of hip hop duo Gorgeous Children has helped him approach electronic music from a different angle. “I'm stylistically indebted to hip hop and I think it's at the core of all my songs, but I'm equally interested in pulling inspiration from industrial sounds and nature” he explains. “When I set out to make a song, I let the textures and rhythms dictate what it should become, rather than pursuing a specific genre or style.” Taking inspiration from such a diverse range of places then has helped shape Gila’s music in to something denser, darker and otherworldly.

Radiohead's debut album, Pablo Honey, is a promising collection that blends U2's anthemic rock with long, atmospheric instrumental passages and an enthralling triple-guitar attack that is alternately gentle and bracingly noisy. The group has difficulty writing a set of songs that are as compelling as their sound, but when they do hit the mark -- such as on "Anyone Can Play Guitar," "Blow Out," and the self-loathing breakthrough single "Creep" -- the band achieves a rare power that is both visceral and intelligent. - allmusic.com

The next great British female vocalist? Holly Lapsley Fletcher makes a robust play for the crown with a startlingly poised debut album. Weaving ice-cool electronic production into her high-end torch songs, it’s still that rich, doleful croon that might just hand the 19-year-old a place at pop’s top table. “Hurt Me,” “Love Is Blind,” and “Silverlake” are your starting points: evocative and possessing giant, rousing choruses to thaw the iciest of dispositions.

The heaps of praise during 2000 surrounding 1999's Ágætis Byrjun brought surprisingly little attention to Sigur Rós' first record, released in 1997. Remaining available only through the band's Icelandic label, it took some effort to obtain, but those who did get a copy probably found it to be just as adventurous as Agætis. Though darker and more fractured than the string-laden nooks of the follow-up, it's just as sprawling and outright bombastic. It's remarkable that such a young band would be this experimental at this stage in their lifespan, but the sheer breadth gets to be an albatross. Poking fun at '70s prog rock is just as easy as shooting at cement gargoyles on a suburban rooftop, especially when you're an indie kid or a fan of post-rock. But Sigur Rós makes Yes look like the Minutemen. Whittled down to 40 minutes, Von would be considerably more effective than it already is. As a mood setter, the 10-minute opening track really takes about three minutes to do what it needs, and a few other spots seem to drag on for the sake of sucking time. That doesn't prevent Von from being impressive, veering from Gavin Bryars-style aquatic minimalism to My Bloody Valentine-style dream pop. Varying states of isolationist ambience run throughout, whether evoking unrest or tranquil rest. You can practically envision a stray headboard floating through the Sinking of the Titanic-type passages, and the lush "Myrkur" comes from a planet where MBV's Kevin Shields and Kitchens of Distinction's Julian Swales are accorded the level or worship that Earth gives to Hendrix and Clapton. And then there's that voice, one of the most distinctly unintelligible voices since the Cocteau Twins' Liz Fraser. Boy? Girl? One would be hard-pressed to guess without liner notes. Based on pure sound, Von is just as much of a treat as the acclaimed follow-up. - Andy Kellmann
