Tag: Jonny Greenwood (1-2 of 2)

There's an unreleased Radiohead song in 'Inherent Vice' (sort of)

When Paul Thomas Anderson’s Inherent Vice opens Friday, it will include a bunch new recordings by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, who has a pretty successful side hustle writing for soundtracks, alongside classic tracks by Can and Neil Young. One of them is a previously unreleased Radiohead composition called “Spooks.”

Radiohead heads may recognize it as the uncharacteristically spunky number channeling ’60s surf rock via the Pixies’ Bossanova that the band played during a 2006 tour. With help from two members of the defunct Britpop outfit Supergrass, Greenwood has given the song a dramatic makeover, slowing it down to a Doors-y tempo and turning it into the psychedelic bed of sound to back up a spoken word passage by narrator Joanna Newsom.

You can check out Greenwood’s reworked version at Stereogum, and check out a fan video of the Radiohead original below.


Frank Ocean and 12 other great Radiohead covers

At last week’s Spotify press conference – the one where Lars Ulrich revealed that Metallica’s full discography would be made available on the streaming service — Frank Ocean took the stage for a brief performance.

In the introduction to his own track, “Voodoo,” Ocean covered Radiohead’s 1995 classic “Fake Plastic Trees” —  watch the video (courtesy of Oh No They Didn’t) after the jump.
