R.I.P. Klaus Dinger

“There were three great beats in the 70s. Fela Kuti’s Afrobeat, James Brown’s funk, and Klaus Dinger’s Neu! beat.”
-Brian Eno

Neu! – Crazy

How Ratatat make their ill beats.

My favorite Ratatat track, the harmonized gutiar and organ is so metal. It is also Thomas Bangalter’s favorite track by them which is why he spun it at the Louis Vuitton fashion show.
Ratatat – Lex

This Ratatat track reminds me of Neu!’s Michael Rother’s solo music meets The Fucking Champs.
Ratatat – Germany To Germany

The illest Ratatat remix.
Notorious B.I.G. – Party and Bullshit

Dr. Dre is finishing up his “final” album, Detox and is planning to release it June 2008. He apparently spent 72 hours straight making beats. He is now working on the new Eminem and plans to lift weights, make beats, and spend time with his family. OG.

Simian Mobile Disco’s new Vid for “Hustler”, it is MSTRKRFT’s Easy Love meets Aphex Twin’s Windowlicker. Sexy.

IN RAINBOWS!!!!

It is 1:10 AM EST, are you staying up all night to wait for the morning in the UK? I am! We all have waited way too long for a new Radiohead album, let us all rejoice!

1:28 AM – EMAIL with Download link!!! RADIOHEAD – IN RAINBOWS!!! Listening!!!

1:54 AM – 4 Tracks in, the basslines are amazing, Arpeggi is gorgeous, weaving guitars, solid drumming.

1:59 AM – All I Need – Is Questlove playing drums? Phil Selway has let the inner groovemeister out. Hypnotic grooves & a lot of glockenspiel.

2:02 AM – Faust Arp – Beatlesque. “Julia”

2:05 AM – Reckoner – whoa this does not sound anything like the older live version they use to play. So many vocal harmonies for a Radiohead album. The string arrangements are gorgeous.

2:10 AM – Neil Young would be proud of this album. I was hoping for more a of dub/reggae vibe after Jonny Greenwood said for 6 months straight all he listened to was the entire Trojan Records Catalog.

Jonny Greenwood Is the Controller

2:14 AM – Colin & Phil really shine on this album. I am impressed how tight they are. Jigsaw Falling Into Place is a prime example. Very motorik, Neu! sounding.

2:18 AM – In Rainbows comes to a close, Videotape. Wow Phil’s drumming.

Okay, time for this to all sink in. I shall give this another listen in the morning with fresh ears.
Cheers Radiohead.

Pitchfork’s extensive guide to In Rainbows, how hip.

Oh and look at the trend Radiohead started.
