Vinyl Pull No. 8

Thom Yorke is one of my very favorite musicians, songwriters, and lyricists of all time. Kid A remains in my top ten album list on our app TriYou and it is a no brainer for me.

The only thing I might say is that I would boycott the H in his first name—I still struggle to spell it correctly. Just one letter can really throw me off. AND AGAIN, I’m off the subject, or better put have not even got to it yet.

The subject today is Thom Yorke’s Anima (his third solo offering, which I found displayed at Omega Music in Dayton Ohio—I was hugely surprised and very happy—somehow, I had forgotten it had even come out, so this was like a very grand gift for me, even though I had to pay for it.

I would consider it experimental even for Yorke, the last one that impressed me this way was Radiohead’s King of Limbs. I consider almost all of Yorke’s music ahead of its time, and this one sounds that way too as I listen right now.

I would like to experiment more, maybe I could start a daycare center called angel dust, featuring for a midafternoon snack of angel dust, of course, but that is for another time.

Right now, I just realized I think I might boycott the E in Yorke as well.

I really do love this album and am a little bit pissed it doesn’t get more recognition.

ALSO, there is an extended music video directed by Paul Thomas Anderson that you can watch on Netflix—another HUGE reason it should get more recognition. Below is a snippet from that.

Anima is very electronic as you can tell, and I have to admit that I was not nearly as open to this type of sound until Kid A blew me away the very first time I heard it. Now I wish there was more like it but there is only one Tom York—that doesn’t seem right.

There is only one Thom Yorke—he is also right about the H and the E.

One reason I decided to write about this today is that the single to The Smile’s upcoming album has just been released. If you have not heard the Smile is a side project with Radiohead’s Yorke and Greenwood produced by Nigel Goodrich and I think maybe Sylvester Stallone on drums, but you may want to look that up.

This makes me want to revisit Thom Yorke’s second solo album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes which I have not listened to nearly enough—you should so the same.
