Of Seizures And Choreographers

I like Radiohead.

Maybe because Nigel Godrich takes them to a higher level? Maybe Jonny Greenwood even more? And so, when this morning’s coffee had an added flavor thanks to Lotus Flower, I realized I have no way to criticize this band anymore.

Is the new record breaking new ground after waiting almost 4 years? No. Is Thom still dancing like Ian Curtis’ ghost set on fire? Yes. Put that together and you get Lotus Flower — an atmospheric skitter through the Radiohead trench complete with Mr. Yorke’s stratospheric vocalizations.

When I looked at this video this morning there were 310 views. Now, over a half million. I guess they’re not really an acquired taste anymore?
