I'm listening to these guys at the moment.
It's a really good album. Their voices are lovely together and their songs are really well written.

I'm gonna throw out a couple of shameless plugs.
First, a band I discovered when they did the bumper music for "Justified" - Gangstagrass:


Second, one of my favorite love songs by one of my favorite artists:

I still maintain that Creep is one of the most beautiful melodies in any modern music. And its chord progression is still so simple.

Clearly she’s a talented singer! And she delivered heartfelt performance, which helps. I think with a little polish on the delivery from a coach or producer, that could be a legit commercial recording.

It's a pretty good song yeah. I still remember one year at Glastonbury festival (2003 apparently) Radiohead were headlining one of the days, and had been encouraging other performers to include Creep in their set. I'm not sure how many actually did, YouTube only seems to have Moby's take, and one from Damian Rice that's marked as 2004 but may or may not have been mislabelled.

I never went hard into Radiohead but what I have liked of theirs has generally been from around the Creep era.
It's been over 8 years, and this song still gives me tingles. Such a god damn amazing voice.


And when a cover of Baba Yetu (from Civilization IV) with her and Peter Hollins dropped I've never clicked on a YouTube video so fast in my life.

Radiohead used to be great. And then they started 'experimenting'. Which is fine on a drunken stag do when you're sharing a hotel room with a friend. But keep it out of the studio, Thom.

Glad you liked it!
It's not necessarily their artistic peak, but I like it as an intro for the band because it shows of what they're about, in a "you won't like the band if you don't enjoy this" kind of way.
When all is said and done, more is generally said than is done.
Ask me anything - no, really - but be warned: I will answer. If you didn't want to know... don't ask.
