Thom York's gig in Cambridge

On the 26th of February Thom Yorke took to the stage in Cambridge where i also played some new songs. I am of course always excited about new things from that part of the musical landscape, but I must admit the new songs sound a bit blend, but you also have to have in mind that I usually don't like Radiohead/Thom Yorke songs before after a while and I can all ready feel myself liking Lotus Flower and These Are My Twisted Words a lot more now than when I heard it for the first time. One of the people that added comments on the ateasweb, commented on the exact thing as I always think: These songs need to be "greenwoodified", meaning that we need Jonny Greenwood to have a go at them too and then they will turn out to the brilliant mix that is Radiohead. If these songs will even be part of Radiohead? Who knows what Thom will do with them. The new Radiohead album is said to be out in not too long, so very excited about that :D Right now the songs to me sound a little like things I have heard Thom Yorke do so many times before.. same chords, same way he plays them, same melodies.. It's good, don't get me wrong, but I need more than this. I was truly excited when I heard Airbag at the end of the set and all the beautiful melodies in it.. :) Of course, it also helps to listen to this version of These Are My Twisted Words compared to the one that was released a while ago. Then you can see what will happen to the others too.

Here is a link to the page where you can see videos from the concert :)

Those videos are really impressive - love the way he loops stuff and builds stuff up. Incredible songwriter.
