HDIF's Gig Of The Week
Thurs 26 - Radiohead at Roundhouse
These relatively intimate gigs for Radiohead sold out in an instant in March, which was to be expected, of course. What the ticket buyers for the shows didn't know was that the band were on the cusp of releasing one of the albums of their career, the superb "A Moon Shaped Pool". Radiohead's ninth long-player sees the group back themselves out of the corner they'd wandered into with their last album, and open up to all sort of musical possibilities - including, for possibly the first time in their career, playing some songs that don't sound too much like Radiohead at all. It's hard not to suspect the guiding hand of Jonny Greenwood in all of this, as many of the tracks have a vivid, cinematic quality to them, but in general the new record works because it sounds like a team effort. The lucky few will find out how that all translates live this week.
