...Yorke warned into the mic:
This is a roundup. This is a low-flying panic attack…
The Most Important Band In the World from there proceeded to play the first half of their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, in sequence, and then moved onto another set of tracks from the middle part of their long and storied career, including Kid A's "The National Anthem" and The King of Limbs' "Lotus Flower". And while the audience remained attentive, consuming metric tons of Heineken and hand-rolled cigarettes between friendly chats, it wasn't until the lullaby tones of "No Surprises" from their landmark album OK Computer — the opus singularly most responsible for converting the masses here today — washed over the crowd that everyone truly engaged, and the entire concert shifted in mood. When the harpsichord notes ceased and Yorke thanked the crowd, it was his first acknowledgment of the sweaty ocean of humanity crammed before them. [Rolling Stone]
Radiohead continued their tour, hitting Barcelona's Primavera Sound yesterday (6/3). Their 20+ song set included plenty of their new album and a great mix of other stuff too. Check out their full setlist and videos of "Creep" and "Burn the Witch" below.
Yesterday Primavera also played host to The Avalanches, who are finally releasing a new album after a decade and a half. They played the new songs "Subway" and "Frankie Sinatra," and you can check out videos of those below too.
