|The remix album of Radiohead's 'The King of Limbs" is one of the albums you can preview this week.|
The new Radiohead remix album called "TKOL RMX 1234567" heads up the new releases that are up for online streaming this week. It features songs from the band's most recent album, "The King of Limbs," remixed by artists including Caribou, Four Tet, SBTRKT, and more. I'm generally not a fan of remixes (they generally come across like novelty songs to me), but since it's Radiohead I'll be giving a listen. OK, probably a few.
Paste says that the band had released a series of vinyl singles over the summer, each featuring a few of the remixes, and it is now assembling them into one double-length album, to be released Oct. 10th. To celebrate the occasion, Radiohead is holding a record release party the next night in London, featuring Thom Yorke and other artists playing DJ. (The article says it will be streamed online.)
What other new albums are streaming online this week: "Beauty Queen Sister" by Indigo Girls, "Reverie" by Joe Henry, "People and Things" by Jack's Mannequin, and "Oh Fortune," the latest by rising Canadian singer-songwriter Dan Mangan.
There's also the promising-sounding collection "Batman: Arkham City - The Album"with tunes by some of my favorite groups of the last few years: the Duke Spirit, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, the Raveonettes, and the Boxer Rebellion, as well as Coheed & Cambria and Panic at the Disco.
