Radiohead: U.S. Release/Webcast

Radiohead Release In Rainbows Stateside
Through TBD Records/ATO Records Group on 01/02/08

On January 2, 2008, TBD Records/ATO Records Group will release in North America the physical version of Radiohead's In Rainbows. Released in download format earlier this year, In Rainbows has already received tremendous acclaim in the press. British music magazine Q wrote "In Rainbows is a brilliant work" while Rolling Stone said the album "delivers an emotional punch that proves all other rock stars owe us an apology." New York magazine raved, "Radiohead has made their best music in years, maybe ever."

TBD/ATO are currently focusing on both "Bodysnatchers" and "Jigsaw Falling Into Place" as the North American radio singles. Produced by Nigel Godrich, In Rainbows is the band's seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2003's RIAA certified Platinum Hail to the Thief. More information about the album release and the band's touring plans to follow.

For further fun with Radiohead, please enjoy their "Thumbs Down" Webcast (below) from last Friday 11/09/2007. The live session includes some random weirdness, live performances of In Rainbows "Bodysnatchers," "Reckoner," "Faust ARP" and "Jigsaw Falling Into Place," as well as covers of New Order's "Ceremony" and the Smiths' "The Headmaster Ritual."

In addition to the live tracks Thom Yorke and the crew lay down a rather stellar DJ set including tracks from M.I.A., !!!, Fela Kuti, Bauhaus, Ray Charles, Iggy Pop, Kenny Rogers & the First Edition, Squarepusher, Iron & Wine, Captain Beefheart and much more.

Yes!!!! Even though I have the download I will still buy the "hard" copy. I love this band and every thing they have done. Weird Fishes, Reckoner, and all of it gets me going every time. I wish they would put out something every year or even more often!!!

"And I don't believe anyone that tells me that they can tell the difference between a 160 kbps mp3 and a wav file. You know its fucking audiophile elitist nonsense."

i don't consider myself an elitist at all BUT come on...if you can't tell the difference between a lower bitrate and a wav/flac file...especially when considering live recordings, you should get your ears checked

good video, thom yorke should spin fela kuti and captain beefheart more often. im glad this excellent album will be in stores for all those who didnt download/purchase the discbox to get a hold of, its one of those albums everyone should hear at least once.

roberto767 - HUGE difference between 128 to 160 to 320. Massive. 128 is less than FM quality. 160 is barely FM quality and you do not approach anything close to a CD till you go all the way to 256/320. If you can not tell, you really should have your ears checked. You may have something wrong.

320 to WAV is a bit touchier and really depends on the quality of the original.

Anyone know where this can be downloaded from? I could do with less of the DJ stuff.

Also listening to it. The commentator is a tool. He says that he didn't pay for In Rainbows, then again he didn't download it "but I imangine it's great". Eh???

As for my above audio quality point, if you listen to an iPod with the headphones they provide, it really doesn't matter what the encode rate is because their headphones totally suck. If you use them, ditch them ASAP for something else. I use Sure E3's (and E2's are good too), but pretty much any $20 headphones will be lots better than those turds Apple sell.

I tunes. u can get it there.

I listened to the whole thing recently.

Lots of floaty vocal ballads. They really all sound very similiar.

Still I am not terribly impressed, but I have not given up.

I am trying to understand why this band is so well liked. I do not get it yet.
