Africa Hitech, the moniker under which Mark Pritchard and Steve Spacek record together, released their debut full length 93 Million Miles this past May on Warp. Considering both members have been making forward-thinking electronic music since the '90s, it makes sense that when they come together, they're able to create a genuine formula of old school UK garage and dubstep. Unlike some of the other artists we've seen reach back to the genre's roots, like Mount Kimbie and Zomby, Africa Hitech's material on 93 Million Miles begs to be blasted at late-night parties and clubs, yet still without the superficial excess of guys like Skrillex and Bassnectar. Check out an album sampler and the video for "Out In The Streets" below, and pick up the album from the Warp webstore.
Africa Hitech just finished up a European tour and will play NYC on November 10 at Le Poisson Rouge with Sepalcure and Mux Mool, who plays with Pictureplane tonight (10/11) and also has CMJ shows coming up. Tickets for the LPR show are on sale now. More dates TBA.
Mark Pritchard is also one of the contributors to the Radiohead remix album, TKOL RMX 1234567, which you can stream HERE. The release party for the album is streaming NOW on Radiohead's website and Boiler Room's website. You can also stream Mark's take on "Bloom" below.

DOWNLOAD: Lacrymosa - Good At Heart (RAC Maury Mix) (MP3)
"I love dance songs and I've always wanted to write one. I only play the piano, and I prefer writing classical piano music, so none of what I've written so far has crossed over to a danceable category. I don't end up finishing happy little ditties because I usually concentrate on the darker songs that tend to move me more than lighter songs do. I found out I'd be working with Andrew Maury at the same time that I found out he'd picked one of my darkest songs for a dance remix. I was pleased to discover that the remix presented the song to me in a new and true light. I suddenly sounded genuinely curious to understand a deeply disturbing moment in history from another point of view, which was what I really tried to explore when writing this song."Grab that song for free above! (or buy it at Family Records.) Go see Lacrymosa early tonight (10/3) at 7pm at Rockwood Music Hall.
- CAITLIN PASKO OF LACRYMOSA
Lacrymosa came out with a full length album on Family in 2010.
Check out a video of Lacrymosa covering Radiohead below...
I know you're sick of Radiohead posts, but, well, they keep doing things! (and anyway, more importantly, this post also contains Portishead!). But back to the point.... Radiohead just played two shows at Roseland Ballroom, appeared on SNL, and on The Colbert Report. They're also rumored to play for Occupy Wall Street today at 4 PM, though that might not happen. In addition to all of that, Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood will perform on Fallon on Monday (10/3). According to Radiohead At Ease, they'll be performing "Give Up The Ghost."
Speaking of Fallon, his week-long run of Pink Floyd covers (that started with the Shins) continued on Tuesday when Foo Fighters played "In The Flesh" with Roger Waters, on Wednesday when MGMT took on "Lucifer Sam" off of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn, with help from Bradford Cox who was dressed as Joey Ramone. Dierks Bentley did "Wish You Were Here" last night (9/29). You can watch all three videos below.
MGMT will also perform at The Guggenheim on November 10 and 11 as part of the 2011 Guggenheim International Gala. The 11/10 show is a private party, but the 11/11 show is a public event. Tickets go on sale Friday (10/14) with a member presale starting Thursday (10/13).
Portishead, who plays and curated ATP NJ this weekend, will appear on Fallon on Wednesday (10/5), two days after Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood do. Portishead play their second of two sold out shows at Hammerstein Ballroom the same night.

Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
"It appears that Radiohead will not be headed to Wall Street on Friday afternoon to perform for the protesters who have occupied Zuccotti Park for the past two weeks.Hmm. Who is telling the truth? Could they have planned to play, but backed out when they realized word got out? Could it not be "Radiohead", but something related? A Clive Deamer solo bongo set? We'll find out soon enough! Head to Wall St. at your own risk!
The band's representatives said in an email that there will be no show in support of the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrators. "We can officially confirm this is NOT happening," wrote Steve Martin of Nasty Little Man, the firm that represents Radiohead.
Rumors of a Radiohead appearance swirled around the Internet and Twitter earlier Friday, capped by an email from a spokesperson for the loosely organized protest movement shortly after midday announcing what he termed a "show in solidarity" at 4 p.m. Friday.
Radiohead @ Roseland last night (more by Bao Nguyen)
"The Occupy Wall Street protesters camped out in Lower Manhattan's Zuccotti Park are buzzing over a big secret musical guest scheduled to play this afternoon at around 4pm. We hear that it's Radiohead, who are in New York for a couple concerts.What would Stephen Colbert think?
It makes sense: Radiohead's lead singer Thom Yorke has a history of lefty anti-globalization protest. What do you think: Are the millionaires from Radiohead authentic enough to be the bards of revolution?" [Gawker]
UPDATE: Gothamist says that "A spokesperson for Occupy Wall Street confirms "Radiohead will play a surprise show today at four in the afternoon. Press conference at one in the afternoon."
UPDATE 2: Occupy Wall Street says it's happening on their own website!
UPDATE 3: Radiohead spokesperson says NOT TRUE.
UPDATE 4: Occupy Wall Street claims they were hoaxed!

You already saw the setlist from Thursday night (and pictures and the setlist from Wednesday). Here are some pictures and videos from last night's Radiohead show (which was followed by a very late Thom Yorke DJ set at Westway). They continue below...
Radiohead @ Roseland Ballroom - 9/29/11 (photo by parkeryoung)
Not counting song order, the Radiohead setlist from last night (Thursday, 9/29) was almost identical to Wednesday's. I think the most notable difference is that Wednesday they played "Street Spirit" and Thursday got "Like Spinning Plates". Thursday also got 21 songs instead of just 20. Their extra was "Supercollider" which was just released this year on a single. Pictures
coming HERE. The full Thursday setlist below...

If you were there, how long did you wait to get inside to see Radiohead play their first of two shows at Roseland Ballroom in NYC last night? I arrived at 8:00 and made it in around 9:00. The line for will call check in (all tickets were will call) wrapped around the entire square block. The end of the line was all the way back at the venue, and had apparently been that way since doors opened. If you didn't have a ticket in advance, did you manage to get in? Lots of people were walking up and down the line with signs explaining why they deserved to get your extra if you had one.
Four Tet was on when I finally got through the doors, but without a good spot, and with all the loud crowd noise, it was hard to focus on the opener. Roseland was packed. Radiohead, complete with 2nd bald drummer, took the stage a bit after 10 and played till after midnight. The concert itself was as special as (any Radiohead fan) expected, but my highlight was definitely the second of two encores which did not seem planned. Nobody in the giant venue (relatively speaking) was ready for the band to leave after they finished with "Morning Mr. Magpie" from the new "King of Limbs" album. The club toyed with turning the house lights back on, house music came on, and the crew even seemed to be breaking down. It could have been an act to make an encore seem real for once. Regardless, it worked and the boys returned to the stage, now all dressed down and in black, to the loudest cheers yet. And this time they closed the night off right, with the one-two punch that was "Street Spirit" and "Nude."
Earlier in the set they played a bit of "The One I Love" which was a nice little tribute to the recently-departed R.E.M. The full setlist is below.
Though I can hardly understand Thom when he speaks, he seemed in a good mood. He asked if we saw the movie "Inside Job" and then I think he said something about nothing being different. He mentioned it was nice to not be sitting around a TV studio, a reference to the fact that their NYC vacation so far has included appearances on both SNL and the Colbert Report. The merch included special t-shirts made just for the shows (pics below).
Radiohead do it again at Roseland tonight (9/29). More pictures, some great videos, and the setlist from last night, below...
"hate me, but listening to the new Radiohead material reminds
me just how mainstream I really am." - Megumi Terui
"I've never even heard 'OK Computer', but anything by Radiohead doesn't make much sense to me. Everyone's going on about Radiohead pushing things forward, but the only thing they're famous for really is songs like 'Creep' innit?" - Liam Gallaghertoday in NYC

"Some ticket holders for this week's New York shows have chosen to re-sell one or both of their allocation on auction sites. Using a 2 ticket limit and will-call only access with ID, we have tried to ensure that more tickets go to the people who prefer to see the show than to cheat fellow fans with re-selling tickets at exorbitant prices.---
For those of you who have to pay over the face value of the ticket, PLEASE make sure that you are certain you can get into the show before parting with your money. A ticket is only valid with its matching credit card details and the ID of the purchaser, after which the ticket holder will be escorted straight through. "

"Just passed by the Radiohead line at Roseland & there is definitely a woman in that line with ACTUAL MENTAL ILLNESS. Weird scene." - Ahmad Bilal
Radiohead plays their first of two shows at Roseland Ballroom tonight (9/28) with Four Tet and friends. Tickets went on sale Monday morning and naturally sold out instantly. People are already in line to get in (see above), though I doubt they have been there as long as some waited to try and get in to SNL (or have they?).
Huffington Post wrote an article about how people are mad at not getting Radiohead tickets, and it included this statement from a Ticketmaster rep:
"There was tremendous demand for Radiohead's New York shows and in comparison, there were a relatively small number of tickets available. This is an example of where paperless ticketing -- currently restricted in New York -- could have created a great fan experience and ensured that all of the available tickets were purchased by real fans instead of some being scooped up by scalpers."- TicketmasterOne poor soul got some kind of confirmation but no tickets. He claims a Ticketmaster rep later told him, "I don't know why you didn't get them. Our servers were overloaded." Meanwhile, one jerk wants $1500 for a pair on eBay. Another on Craigslist will take you to make his ex-girlfriend jealous.
The above photo comes from Gothamist who also aggregated some funny scalper listings.
As you know, last night was the Colbert Report Radiohead special. All the videos, including web exclusives and interviews, below...
YouTube's KidATiki wrote on Friday:
After catching the Descendents at Roseland on Friday (9/23), I walked a couple blocks to NBC Studio to see if there were any people waiting to get stand-by tickets (which doesn't guarantee entry) for tomorrow's SNL season premier with Alex Baldwin/Radiohead......first couple people started camping on Thursday. Some dedication for these hardcore fans!And you thought getting tickets from your desk at 10am today was hard. Check out the video of the campers below...
Like he did at Glastonbury and in the Basement, and like he probably will twice this week at Roseland Ballroom in NYC (and on Colbert), drummer Clive Deamer joined Radiohead during their performance on Saturday Night Live last night (9/24). Said Radiohead drummer Phil Selway back in June, "no, you're not seeing double. The doppelganger drummers are myself and Clive Deamer. Clive has long been one of my favourite drummers and so I was really excited when he agreed to perform with us. Hope you like what we've all done." Clive's credits include recording with Portishead and Roni Size, and touring with Robert Plant. Check out the two SNL videos, and some clearer screencaps, below...
As always, sneaky Radiohead put some pre-sale tickets on their WASTE site without much or any notice. Those tickets appear to now be gone. Did you get any? If not, tickets for the two Roseland shows go on general sale Monday at 10am. KCRW is also offering a chance to win some. You need to sign up as a member.
OMD @ Terminal 5 in March (more by Dana (Distortion) Yavin)
As Tune-Yards starts her second of two NYC shows at LPR tonight (9/20), OMD will be beginning their first of two shows at Irving Plaza. And I don't know what is about right now and two-night stands, but Wedneday and Thursday have two Beirut shows (both shows with Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier) and two Opeth shows.Thursday and Friday bring two Wilco shows (tickets went back on sale today) and two Girls shows (who also play Other Music while they're here). Old school East Coast punks (sort of) Blondie (who cover Beirut on their new album) just played two shows at Highline Ballroom. Old school West Coast punks X begin a two night run at Irving Plaza soon, but not before the two Radiohead shows at Roseland Ballroom with Four Tet and friends go on sale, sell out and happen (though Radiohead does overlap with X's Maxwell's show). Megafaun also play two NYC shows next week, as do Mogwai with the Soft Moon. Jay-Z & Kanye West will spend
9/27 & 9/28 11/5 & 11/6 at the Izod Center in NJ. Portishead and Jeff Mangum help end September and begin October with two shows each as part of ATP in NJ. Portishead follow it up with two more shows at Hammerstein Ballroom. I think that's a good place to stop. What else?
I guessed right! Here's the press release:
Radiohead has confirmed two shows at New York City's Roseland Ballroom to take place September 28 and 29. Tickets will go on sale at 10:00 AM on September 26 at www.ticketmaster.com. There is a 2 ticket limit per household. All tickets will be available for pick up at will call the evening of the event beginning at 6:30 PM and entry into the venue is required immediately upon receipt. No tickets shall be distributed prior to the event.woo hoo!
In addition, Radiohead will appear on a very special one-hour episode of The Colbert Report featuring multiple songs and interview segments. And as previously announced, Radiohead will be musical guest on the September 24 season premiere of Saturday Night Live.
These TV performances and live shows are the band's first appearances in the U.S. since the release of its current album The King Of Limbs, which it made available digitally at www.Radiohead.com on February 18 and released to physical and digital retail via tbd Records on March 29.

Radiohead will guest on Comedy Central's Colbert Report on September 26th.SNL is the 24th
Apart from the band's appearance on Saturday Night Live, Radiohead will also be a guest on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. Not just as a musical guest, but Stephen Colbert will have the band on for an hour-long special. Radiohead will be playing four songs, some from The King Of Limbs, but also unreleased track The Daily Mail. An extra song will be made available online.
Stephen Colbert: "I look forward to meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors." [At Ease]
In related news, Thom Yorke played a surprise acoustic solo show in England last night (9/18), and he recently revealed a new so-so solo track on the radio called "The Twist". You can listen to the glitchy techno number, which was part of a 25 minute mix that you can also hear, below...
