Stereogum Releases Radiohead Tribute Album For OK Computer

 

By: Spacelab Research Staff
Stereogum has gone and put together a compilation of covers in the form of a tribute to Rediohead's OK Computer. It's titled Stereogum Presents... OKX: A Tribute To OK Computer. They asked a bunch of bands to cover one of the songs, compiling an alternate take on the album with a variety of contributors. The end result is almost as mystifying and paranoia-inducing as the original.

"OK houses a post-everything guitar rock made fleshy and skeletal with spiraling pop arrangements, arty progressions, and complexly ingenious/uncompromising recording techniques. As those of us haunted by its melodies know, OK Computer's often as important for its sound as for what the band wanted to say," said the site about the compilation.

The contributors include David Bazan, Doveman, Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble, John Vanderslice, Johnny Greenwood, Marissa Nadler, Mobius Band, Radiohead, Slaraffenland, The Decemberists, The Twilight Sad, Thom Yorke, and Vampire Weekend. Everybody did their own take on their chosen song, sometimes honoring the original in a true-to-form version, others splinter the original version of their song.
