New Radiohead Album!!!

Radiohead fans have something to be stoked about this weekend. Their new album "The King of Limbs" is releasing on Saturday!! Woohoo!! It's been way too long since "In Rainbows".

I'm curious why they didn't go with the same marketing model as In Rainbows though. If you guys will remember, it was a donation style/free music model where you paid whatever you wanted for the album. I understood that it worked very well for them $$ wise. Oh well, I'm glad to pay full price for any Radiohead production.

Here's a link where you can order the download:

I've got to get Thom York into binaural audio. Anyone have his email address?

Few events in popular culture give me butterflies these days like the anticipation of a new Radiohead album. I've already told the wife I'll need some time in my "man cave" on Saturday to properly experience TKOL for the first time.

Thom and Jonny especially would be naturals for binaural. Wish I had some contact info for them. I'd encourage them to record for release using it, too.

I agree on all points! Definitely worthy of a "Man Cave" escape. I find it amazing how they've set up their distribution model. They've built up a massive mailing list of dedicated fans eagerly awaiting to hand them money. They send out one announcement, and 3 days later pull in millions of dollars. Obviously the content has to continue to be solid, but clearly they're masters at that.
