These Are My Twisted Words:
So here's a new song, called 'These Are My Twisted Words'.
We've been recording for a while, and this was one of the first we finished.
We're pretty proud of it.
There's other stuff in various states of completion, but this is one we've been practicing, and which we'll probably play at this summer's concerts. Hope you like it.

A recent post on Radiohead's blog about a free song. They also just released another song, but are charging one pound for it.
This follows their recent announcement that they're sort of over the whole "album" thing:
Radiohead Says No More Albums — Radiohead said in a magazine interview that it wouldn't release any more full-length albums, instead focusing on downloadable singles like its recently released "Harry Patch (In Memory Of)" and shorter EPs.
— Radiohead's Thom Yorke at a July 2008 concert in Amsterdam.
I think it might just be their way of branching out for the moment. I still embrace the full-length album as the pinnacle of human achievement in music, and I don't think it's going anywhere despite online streaming services, torrents, file sharing, or anything else. It's a whole thing, like a novel, like a movie. Maybe that's just my opinion.
[FYI: This is the first of hopefully many posts aided by the recently added "send to" function on Google Reader. Of course, I'm going to bounce over to Blogger real quick so I can preview it before I publish it... And... it's not perfect. Took some cleaning up. ]
