Radiohead continues to release non-album material, and I continue to snatch it up. Here are a couple of B-Sides and some remixes, which are pretty good.
Download>> Radiohead - Cuttooth.mp3
This B-Side is from the "Knives Out" UK Single #2. It has a somewhat weak intro, but that can mainly be attributed to being abandoned before it was mastered completely. It's a semi-rollicking jam-out with some interesting blends betwixed the piano and guitars. It's the first time we hear Thom Yorke use the words "I don't know why I feel so skinned alive." The next time her used these words was in the song "Myxamatosis" on the album "Hail to the Thief". It's a very interesting sound for Radiohead. I feel like it's a miture between Pablo Honey, The Bends, and Hail to the Thief, with very little OK Computer, Amnesiac or Kid A in it.

You'll find this song like something of an astral adventure. It's very light and airy. It's almost like teh whole song is a refrain. Interesting strings with Johnny on cello as well as others. Thom's voice is pretty spot on. This is pretty much the best recording of it available. The slightly poor quality is due to the acoustics in the room and the sound equipment.

This remix reminds me of Massive Attack's work a lot. It's very dark and ominous (as the songs title would make one think). It's got this creeping darkness thing working pretty well. This remix actually samples the original song more than it uses it as a base soundtrack, but it's good nonetheless. Fans of Massive Attack and maybe even Portishead will appreciate this one the most.

A strange electro-remix. It mostly keeps the slower pace of the original song (from Hail to the Thief), but certainly makes it sound like a totally different song. It sort of sounds like it was made for a videogame or a driving in the rain scene in a movie. I don't care for it so much, but I needed to have it. Maybe you will like it!
