Radiohead – The Pyramid Song

When Radiohead holed up in the studio and came out with ‘Kid A’ in 2000, word was the band had done a ‘Talk Talk’, and were now a stadium level band peddling underground music. Some in the underground snorted with derision; and some did so without actually listening. Well, the band were deadly serious about what they were doing, and they did indeed manage to pull off a ‘Talk Talk’; drawing their own sound from their influences without aping them. This track is from the 2001 album they brought out after ‘Kid A’, an album that grew out of the massive bouts of recording sessions they had to release that massive curveball. ‘The Pyramid Song’ has an epic feel that still manages to sound subdued (not stadium epic, natch) and subtly shifting throughout.
