Discografia do Radiohead na prateleira

radiohead-in-rainbows

O designer Simon James, da Standard Designs, resolveu homenagear sua banda favorita, o Radiohead, transformando cada canção de seus álbuns em um livro de uma coleção específica, reunindo as faixas em prateleiras de volumes que formam cada um dos discos da banda – e está vendendo, online, pôsteres de cada “coleção” (Pablo Honey, The Bends, OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows e The King of Limbs). Reuni todos aí embaixo, saca só:

Radiohead: The King of Limbs remixado

O Radiohead avisou que aquele remix feito pelo Caribou era só o primeiro em uma série de seis EPs do King of Limbs remixado. Interessante ver esses remixes como complementos digitais a um disco que, apesar da sonoridade eletrônica, é inteirinho tocado, com instrumentos de uma banda de rock tradicional. Desde a primeira leva que trouxe o do Caribou e do Jacques Greene o grupo já soltou mais duas baciadas de remixes, incluindo nomes como Nathan Fake, Harmonic 313, Lone, Pearson Sound, Mark Pritchard e Four Tet. Destaco o remix do último, para a minha faixa favorita do disco, “Separator”.

E olha o que mais chegou pelo correio…

O vinil do King of Limbs e a coleção de Dodgem Logic, do Alan Moore, chegaram no mesmo dia, antes das férias.

E vocês sabem como eu levo essas coincidências a sério.

Radiohead x Caribou

Dois dos melhores artistas da atualidade se colidem no remix que eu usei pra abrir o último Vida Fodona. Coisa fina.

Radiohead: The King of Limbs por dentro

E o designer oficial do Radiohead, Stanley Donwood abriu o pacote com a edição completa do King of Limbs para a Creative Review.

“In Rainbows was a great big, solid cardboard thing, if you were determined you could probably kill somebody with it, it was very heavy, and almost like a definitive statement,” he explains. By contrast, Donwood and the band wanted the King of Limbs artwork to express something less conclusive. “It’s not like the news stops when a newspaper comes out,” he continues. “It’s just ‘this is what’s happening today’. So this is released into the world on this day, and this is where this band are right now… it is a continuing thing.”

Tem até LSD!

Radiohead – “Feral”

É de fã, mas ficou foda.

Stanley Donwood e o newspaper album


Arte: Stanley Donwood

Donwood é o Radiohead-visual: ele que cuida de todo o design da banda desde The Bends, sempre contando com dicas dos integrantes do grupo, principalmente Thom Yorke. E ao abrir uma exposição em Londres na mesma semana em que o Radiohead lança seu novo disco, ele quase que pediu para ser entrevistado sobre o disco – mais especificamente sobre o conceito de “álbum-jornal” -, que foi o que o Independent fez:

Though it is a “new” development for music, the newspaper format is not a new direction for Donwood – papers are a constant of his career. His fascination with the medium began when he worked as a paper boy and found direction later in producing jokey newspapers for festivals.

From 2006, he found a more focused role for the format, using it to promote and explain his work. For example, for a 2010 San Francisco show he produced a special issue of his newspaper, Over Normal.

“I love the tactile nature of the newsprint,” says Donwood. “I love the history of Fleet Street (which featured in The Eraser’s art), the revolution that was moving type and how it meant that, for the first time, people were able to educate and inform themselves in an accessible way.”

In his commitment to the format, of which the new Radiohead LP is the latest manifestation, Donwood is part of a growing movement of boutique news-printing – small-run, micro-focused newspaper publications. The popularity is such that The Newspaper Club prints news for anything from school papers and wedding souvenirs to corporate clients such as Liberty and Wired. Also printing are artists capitalising on the romance of newsprint, and the author Dave Eggers, who started his own bespoke San Francisco Panorama – a 320-page broadsheet featuring art and writing from the likes of Michael Chabon.

People harking back to newsprint in a digital age does not surprise Donwood. For him, papers are archives in a way websites cannot be. “A newspaper is a snapshot; a physical record of how things are. If you turned the electricity off, digital records would all disappear, but newspapers have the physical reality, the longevity, and that’s brilliant.”

Bem dito, Stan.
