Caribou/Jacques Greene Remixes – RADIOHEAD | Dead Air Space.

Great remixes of King of Limbs tracks. Wish I could find it on vinyl.

Radiohead debut a brand new song in their latest From The Basement recording session. Entitled Staircase, it features a jittery back beat from Phil Selway and guest artist Clive Deamer underneath a steady build of synths and simple staccato lyrics from Thom Yorke, ultimately ending in a head-bobbing jam with Yorke Ooh-ing and Johnny Greenwood supplying some very In Rainbows-esque guitar licks. I wouldn’t be surprised if this one winds up as a B side on a future single, since the band is already set to release a series of 12″ remixes from The King of Limbs throughout the rest of the year.

Their last Basement session, following 2007’s gorgeous In Rainbows, was a real treat and from the look and sound of this video, we’re in for some more sweet fan service.

So this happened…and it’s pretty awesome.

Meet Sarah Jarosz, 20 year old bluegrass prodigy. According to her wiki, Sarah first picked up a mandolin at age 10, was jamming with Ricky Skaggs by 15, and signed a record deal and released her debut album Song Up In Her Head in 2009 while still a senior in high school.

Her sophomore effort, Follow Me Down, dropped earlier this year and serves as further proof of Jarosz’s considerable talent for songwriting and skilled musicianship – more impressive still: she recorded it while still handling a full course load at the prestigious New England Conservatory of Music.

Follow Me Down is an excellent album well worth repeated listening, featuring 9 original songs written and performed by Jarosz (with a little help from the likes of Bela Fleck, Vince Gill, Darrell Scott, and Punch Brothers) and 2 covers: Ring Them Bells by Bob Dylan and The Tourist by Radiohead. Jarosz is quite the Radiohead fan and the track My Muse was inspired by (at least in part) the work of Oxford’s favorite sons.

Enjoy.

Pitchfork: Flying Lotus to Remix Radiohead?.

This match made in awesome is about to get even better, according to this rumor proliferated by Pitchfork.

Not sure if you’ve checked out any of FlyLo’s work, but Cosmogramma was definitely one of the best and most original albums of 2010. FlyLo’s music is dense and difficult, but at the same time incredibly listenable and ultimately rewarding.

Give it a try, ye thirsty fans of hip hop, trip hop, and electronica.
