Music today has been the three singles and videos so far from The Smile (Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and Sons Of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner with Nigel Godrich at the controls). You’ll Never Work in Television Again, a lyric video with a slight difference, but only slight, The Smoke with 16mm film and the last one Skrting On The Surface has a video proper with Yorke symbolically returning coal to the coal face. I saw a video of their performance at Glastonbury and what I like about them is how they are less electronic, more organic, with weird time signatures, Yorke’s lovely voice, Greenwood’s inventive guitar and Skinner’s off-beat drumming. It seems Greenwood and Yorke play bass, guitars and keys between them. Interesting if you like Radiohead.
