As I wrote nearly a year ago, Radiohead impresses me with their disciplined musicianship. I love the intricacy and precision they wield, and I almost feel like a better musician myself just for listening to them. When I sit down with my guitar afterwards I’m much more mindful of everything I play, less prone to sloppiness, less likely to try and muscle my way through something that almost always sounds better with finesse.
Now, one thing about Radiohead, for me, is that I’m not always in the mood for such moody music, but when I am I’m ecstatic for it, and today is definitely a Radiohead kind of Monday.
And so, without further ado…
