Radiohead - Lotus Flower

Might as well post this in case there is anyone on the planet who hasn’t heard it yet. Radiohead’s new album sees them going in the exact direction that I wanted them to, experimenting more with electronic sounds and more use of samples and loops. They’ve also gone in to more experimental territory with hooks and choruses being far less at the forefront than in earlier efforts. The comparison that seems to be being made is that of this and Cosmogramma by Flying Lotus (which was my favourite album of last year) but I’m not sure how far that comparison goes. Here’s Lotus Flower, the first single off of The King of Limbs, which is a pretty great example of the general sound of the album and a pretty great song in general. The video is also pretty noteworthy for obvious reasons.
