Most blogged artists: buzz over Radiohead's new tracks
Friday 22 April 2011
British band Radiohead is back in the blogs after releasing a seven-inch featuring two tracks, "Supercollider" and "The Butcher," to celebrate Record Store Day, April 16.
The band released the two tracks for free to fans who purchased their latest album, King of Limbs, via Radiohead's website. "They don't break any new ground or inspire much awe (as Radiohead songs are wont to do)," writes blogger The Dadada (thedadada.com) of the new songs. "This new cut is a worthy edition to the catalogue of one of history's greatest bands," reviews Tympanogram (tympanogram.com) of "Supercollider."
Clams Casino, producer for rappers Lil B, G-Side, and Soulja Boy, just released an instrumental mixtape that is making the rounds in the blogosphere. "With the brazen vocals stripped away, these static-drenched beats are smooth and impressively effective all on their own," writes Troys Noise (www.troysnoise.com).
