SCOTCH MISTING IN THE NEW YEAR

My first act of cultural consumption in the New Year was watching “Scotch Mist,” Radiohead’s webcast/live session/fans-New-Year’s present, on one of the late, post-midnight Current TV rebroadcasts before falling asleep. A really great hour of TV with the five band members playing in their small studio shot with locked off webcams, some odd off-kilter interstitials and spastic animations, a slow-mo music video for “Nude,” and a stunning version of “Faust Arp” with just Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood singing/playing at magic hour in the outdoor hills. The complete show is embedded below. All the cuts are recommended, particularly, my favorite, “Reckoner,” and a great, extended, trance-like take on “Videotape.”
