In 1999, five musicians entered a recording studio in Paris without a deadline. Their band was widely recognized as the best and most forward-thinking in rock, a rarefied status granting them the time, money, and space to make a masterpiece. But Radiohead didn’t want to make another rock record. Instead, they set out to create the future. This Isn’t Happening: Radiohead’s “Kid A” and the Beginning of the 21st Century chronicles how for more than a year, they battled writer’s block, intra-band disagreements, and crippling self-doubt, ultimately producing an album that was not only a complete departure from their prior guitar-based rock sound, it was the sound of a new era-and. What they created was Kid A. Deploying a mix of criticism, journalism, and personal memoir, Steven Hyden skillfully revisits this enigmatic, alluring LP and investigates the many ways in which Kid A shaped and foreshadowed our world.
There are few creative acts more mysterious and magical than writing a song. But what if the goal wasn’t so mysterious and was actually achievable for anyone who wants to experience more magic and creativity in their life? That’s something that anyone will be inspired to do after reading Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy’s book, How to Write One Song. The idea of becoming a capital-S songwriter can seem daunting, but approached as a focused, self-contained event, the mystery and fear subsides, and songwriting becomes an exciting pursuit. Tweedy’s book How to Write One Song brings readers into the intimate process of writing one song—lyrics, music, and putting it all together—and accesses the deep sense of wonder that remains at the heart of this curious, yet incredibly fulfilling, artistic act. But it’s equally about the importance of making creativity part of your life every day, and of experiencing the hope, inspiration, and joy available to anyone who’s willing to get started.

The Stylophone is played by tapping and sliding the connected stylus along the touch-sensitive metal surface. Each segment on the surface plays a different note, the same as different keys on a piano. But unlike the piano, it’s so simple to play that anyone can have a go – perfect for beginners! At less than 12cm wide, the Stylophone Retro Pocket Synth fits right in your coat pocket, rucksack, or handbag. Better still, it runs on three AA batteries, and features a built-in speaker and headphone socket – so you can play it everywhere you go.
Following in the tradition of Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Bruce Springsteen, Joni Mitchell is the latest legendary songwriter to open up her archives with Joni Mitchell Archives Vol 1: The Early Years.

This collection documents her early years covering folk standards and slowly transitioning into composing. It’s an essential listen for any fan. Which is to say, it’s an essential listen for anyone who knows her. This 5-CD collection contains over six hours of previously unreleased recordings, including 29 never-before-heard original songs. It also includes a 40-page booklet of unreleased photos and new liner notes derived from recent conversations between Mitchell and Cameron Crowe.
