New Radiohead album available on Saturday

By David Malitz

radioheadRADIOHEAD! NEW ALBUM! SATURDAY! Deep breaths, deep breaths... (Kyle Gustafson/FTWP)

Usually the day after the Grammys is devoid of any music news that doesn't relate to the previous night's show. But as we well know, Radiohead doesn't adhere to any normal set of rules. Just like *that*, the band's new album, "The King of Limbs" will be available on Saturday. This Saturday. It will be the beloved band's first album since 2007's "In Rainbows," which was their first that was announced and self-released in very short order.

It is available for digital pre-order right now and is also available in something called the band is calling newspaper format -- two clear 10" vinyl records, a CD and "many large sheets of artwork, 625 tiny pieces of artwork and a full-colour piece of oxo-degradeable plastic to hold it all together."

OK then. Arcade who?

A) on the heels of a landmark moment for one band and movement, this is the definition of "stealing thunder"

B) Bonnaroo?

I don't understand the above comment. I assume you're referring to Arcade Fire? I wouldn't exactly call winning a Grammy a landmark moment for any "movement"--perhaps you're unaware that they've been selling out sheds for a number of years now?
