Phantogram are diving into 2017 with two new releases for fans- the first is a fresh take on their hit song “You Don’t Get Me High Anymore” from remix legend A-Trak, with an additional verse from SaveMoney Crew’s Joey Purp. The remix will be available for purchase and on all streaming services tomorrow but you can preview now via XXL.
While recently in Australia on tour, Phantogram recorded a cover of Radiohead’s “Weird Fishes”, in addition to their own song “Cruel World”, for Triple J radio, which aired today.

According to Pitchfork writer Jeremy Larson, “while lite orchestrations are nothing new for the band, A Moon Shaped Pool brings them to the fore of the songwriting, and Greenwood’s arrangements do more heavy lifting than on any other album.”
Paul Thomas Anderson has directed a second video for Radiohead’s A Moon Shaped Pool. The video for a stripped-down version of Present Tense, only features Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, and a Roland CR-78 drum machine from the late 70s, filmed on location in Tarzana, California. You can watch it below.

“Last year we were asked to write a theme tune for the Bond movie Spectre. Yes we were. It didn’t work out, but became something of our own, which we love very much. As the year closes we thought you might like to hear it. Merry Christmas. May the force be with you.” — Radiohead

LA based producer STINT returns today after his highly successful and totally unexpected rendition of Lana Del Rey’s “West Coast“. STINT is best known for his re-imagination’s of records, and in the sea of The Remix abyss he is leading his own way. While creating his own vibe and sound STINT manages to completely rework records in his favor, case and point his latest remix of Radiohead’s second single “Nude” off In Rainbows.
As Stint puts it, “Shit Man. Nude By Radiohead… What can you say?
It’s a very solitary track and a bit tragic. I wanted to mix to feel intimate. Almost every synth and drum is a manipulation of my voice and what I could find in the room on the day I made it. If all the elements sound real and exposed, I think it represents the lyrics… At least partly.”
