Radiohead is the most overrated band in the world.
Check out Pretty Lights and NIN to see what the forward thinkers are doing.
I would agree it’s an interesting time for music.I would contend that Trent Reznor has been doing just as good job if not better than Radiohead releasing music in this technological era. His approach has been to essentially open source his music via the Creative Commons License.
Would love to see Radiohead release their tracks to be remixesd in Garage Band or even an album for free.
They have already released two tracks in GarageBand format – Nude and Reckoner:
They’ve also open-sourced one of their music videos. It was recorded using LIDAR (lasers), and the data is available here.
I think Radiohead is an amazing band. Maybe it’s because I grew up on them–they were around during a lot of important stuff!–but I like pretty much everything they’ve done.
Thank you! Your remarks have been sent to Khoi.
