The people at Noisey & Radiohead teamed up at Bonnarro to shoot this video for Daily Mail. This video is directed by Matt Ornstein.

I thought Kevin Tihista was George Harrison’s son. Now you’re telling me he’s not? George’s real son, Dhani, has been kicking around with his band, thenewno2 (pronounced “The new number two”) since 2006 but have kept touring to a minimum. So, if you’re not familiar with thenewno2, that’s understandable.
The band’s second album, thefearofmissingout, was released today and, this week only, you can download the CD for $5 from Amazon. If you take advantage of this offer, it’ll be the best $5 you spend this week.
The curse, if you will, of the Beatles kids who wound up performing music (well, at least Julian and Sean Lennon) is that they sound like their dad and the case can clearly be made that Dhani inherited his dad’s voice. But, musically, there is more Radiohead influence than Beatles, and that makes for one of my favorite releases of 2012 (which I can say after only listening to whole thing one time through so far!).
Radiohead added some US tour dates for the summer, including a welcome date at Cleveland’s Blossom on June 6 with Other Lives and Riverbend in Cincinnati June 5. Tickets for the new dates (in ital) go on sale Thursday.

Depending on whether you love or hate Thom Yorke, this video will make you feel more of THAT emotion.
ATO Records, the label started by Dave Matthews, has apparantly signed Radiohead for North American release. Shiv from WOXY got an email from the label about using songs on the station, and there’s a lot of articles popping up in the news.
Fader is releasing the Trent Reznor / Saul Williams collaboration The Inevitable Rise and Liberation of NiggyTardust! free of charge in DRM-free 192 kbps MP3 format. If you want a choice of formats, or you just want to directly support the artist, you can shell out $5. The album will be available for download November 1, but you can pre-order now.
In some ways this is awfully similar to the Radiohead model, with a few improvements. First of all, the higher baseline kpbs encoding is nice, but I really like the fact that if you pay, you can get the download in whatever format you’d like on up to FLAC.
Secondly, I don’t think this is physically coming out, so it won’t be viewed as a leveraging ploy / future CD-sales tactic. In fact it’ll probably give Williams more recognition than he’s (ever?) had. This is not just due to the sales model, since obviously Reznor’s involvement is pretty noteworthy … especially given his own recent outspoken disdain for the Major Label model of distributing music.
I’m liking these changing times.
