The King of Limbs (Pt. 1)
The Big Mates discuss Greensleeves, Muse, trees, and The King of Limbs by Radiohead.
Adam, Steve, and Lucas continue their deep dive into the career and discography of Radiohead by tackling their divisive eighth album The King of Limbs. They talk about the writing and recording process, the context surrounding the songs, and offer up analysis, opinions, and thoughts from three differing perspectives on music, from being deeply into analysis and music, to not caring for art or critique, and everything in between.
They touch on the the unorthodox method of recording, and how the band approached the record and explore how the album was released.
Why is this album so divisive? What color is music? What's this got to do with trees? Find out on this episode of What Is Music?
Our next episode is out on Monday March 6th and will continue the deep-dive into The King of Limbs.
