New Radiohead

Grab your best headphones and crank it up. There's a bit of the Thorn remix of Siouxsie's 'Overground' in this, maybe also a touch of 'Once There Was A Hushpuppy' from the Beasts of The Southern Wild soundtrack. At any rate, me like (a mood-changer after a strange week of being in a post-Prince funk albeit with lots of good funk).

Strange how witches and witchcraft  are so much in the air right now after the near-triumph of The VVitch (2015).

Update: OK Computer was released in 1997 (the year of 'Bittersweet Symphony', 'Barbie Girl', Spice World, Homogenic, and also Titanic, LA Confidential, Boogie Nights, My Best Friend's Wedding, Starship Troopers), which is as far away from Now as Sgt Pepper and The Graduate and Belle de Jour were from 1986 (the year of Master of Puppets, Reign In Blood, True Blue, So, Graceland, The Queen Is Dead, Prince's Parade, and also Aliens, The Fly, Ferris Bueller, Platoon, Blue Velvet). IIRC, 1967 felt like eons ago in 1986. Does 1997 feel that far away to anyone now?
