Radiohead

British invasion: Experimental superstars

True to the group’s unceasingly iconoclastic bent, Radiohead has once again rewritten the rules, having recently completed a triumphant tour with material it has yet to release, for a label that has yet to be named.

Having completed their contractual obligation to EMI, Radiohead’s members have been recording their seventh album as free agents. Working with longtime producer Nigel Godrich, the group has hinted that the disc might be self-released; and their recent live shows have indicated it might be their most earthy — accessible, even — offering in ages.

The New York Times called their new music “gripping” and “gorgeous” by turns, while leader Thom Yorke used the exposure to promote his own solo LP debut, “The Eraser.” The audacity of it all!

Even if their steadfast refusal to dumb down their work seems like a sure-fire way to punch a one-way ticket to cult-hero obscurity, somehow these unflaggingly experimental Brits have managed to maintain a foothold in the upper reaches of the rock-star continuum.
