I just read a review suggesting Default's chorus recalls Missy Elliott's Get Ur Freak On

Analyze, was that the name? I know the one in question, and it's one of my favourites on the Eraser.

He's certainly becoming more impressionistic. To me that's a very good thing; Codex is a gorgeous lyric, for example, as is Give up the Ghost.

Yeah, Codex has beautifully evocative lyrics, for me. The water's clear and innocent. Also dig the lyric in Separator. The Daily Mail has badass lyrics, and I wish it would have made the album proper. But maybe my favorite moment lyrically on KOL is in Lotus Flower:

We will shrink and we'll be quiet as mice
And while the cat is away
Do what we want


Love that shit. That's my jam. Those lines have popped into my head a lot over the last couple of years.

There are many Radiohead songs I can't make out the lyrics to. Lotus Flower is one of them. Give Up The Ghost and Separator both have terrific lyrics though.

Anyhoo, I hope Lotto Arena is too far for Niels to travel Atoms for Peace Announce Full Band Live Shows | News | Pitchfork

Just half an hour actually. Saw Bloc Party there.

Unfortunately I'm on holidays then, so it will be too far to travel.

At least there's a shot at an LA date that isn't Coachella.

I think amok is a very good effort. Like it's been said, it's more of a Thom solo album than anything...but it is still very good.

That's almost as good as the one Jive posts occasionally of the BDSM guy thrusting into the air.

Anyway, I really like Ingenue.

What in the hell could he have possibly been doing for that to have occurred?


I mean...besides the obvious.

It's from a fight this weekend. He'd been inadvertently kicked in the nuts. Apparently that's his fix.
