Artist Adly Syairi Ramly created these damn cute LEGO version of iconic bands like The Beatles and The Pixies, custom painting the figures IRL, with no photoshop. The range of artists represented here is comically wide: any series that includes both ‘N Sync and Napalm Death is good by us. See some highlights in the gallery […]

New Radiohead stuff! The band released an app dubbed PolyFauna with little fanfare today, posting a typically minimal entry to their blog. Thom Yorke writes that the work, which was produced in collaboration with the British design house Universal Everything, “comes from an interest in early computer life-experiments and the imagined creatures of our subconscious.” […]

Ten years ago, SPIN’s Rob Harvilla played Radiohead’s Hail to The Thief for a group of fifth-grade students and asked them to draw their reactions to it. Yesterday, in commemoration of that album’s ten-year anniversary (make you feel old much?), he published those drawings. They are amazingly, amazingly dark, and a good reminder of just how strange […]

Amanda Ghassaei, the woman who brought you 3D-printed records, is back with yet another impressive alternative to vinyl: laser-cut maple and plywood. And not only do the wooden records look real pretty, they sound a hell of a lot better than their printed-plastic counterparts. But wood is still nowhere near bona fide vinyl, unfortunately.

Cool human being Jack Donaghy Alec Baldwin meets possibly even cooler human being Thom Yorke on the latest episode of Baldwin’s WYNC radio show, Here’s the Thing. In an epic hour-long interview, Baldwin and Yorke chat about all sorts of things, including Radiohead’s history, the two men’s liberal politics, and the grueling nature of being on tour. […]

In the video for “Ingenue,” from the Thom Yorke side project Atoms For Piece, our hero dons a snazzy three-piece suit and dances to his jittery heart’s content for four minutes alongside dancer Fukiko Takase. Garth Jennings, director of Son of Rambow and clips for countless other great musicians, just made the perfect Thom Yorke video. […]

Each week in Sample Wars, we’ll pit two songs which sample the same source material head-to-head against each other, to determine which one rocked the sample better. In this week’s installment we’re looking at Miles Davis’s “Miles Runs the Voodoo Down,” which inspired two modern legends in their own right: Radiohead and Madlib (via his group Lootpack). […]

At age 10, Willow Smith recorded the buoyant, world-beating pop-rap anthem “Whip My Hair.” Now, two years later, she’s already entered her serious-second-album phase with “Sugar and Spice,” a really sad song about not knowing who you are, which heavily samples Radiohead’s “Codex,” a really sad song about yearning for innocence (and probably also death?)

Composer Quinton Sung did an 8-bit encoding of Radiohead’s Ok Computer and Kid A and it’s by far the best thing we heard all morning. […]

If you’ve turned on your various media boxes at all in the past few days, you might have heard that a certain Radiohead has been playing in town this week. Indie-hysteria over tickets have crept to an  all time “eh” with plenty of people offering their first born, a fancy dinner and just about all […]
