Radiohead Countdown Wallpaper: #7 of 7 In Rainbows

So here it is, the final wallpaper in the Radiohead Wallpaper Countdown.
This for the new album, In Rainbows, which I’m currently listening to in fact. I’m 4 songs in, and already in love with it.
The album so far sounds really lo-fi, and extremely jazzy. Thom Yorke’s vocals sound like a female, blues singer from the 40’s, and Phil’s drumming is completely jazz inspired. But at the same time, they’ve layered a lot of sounds, and samples into it.

I know I’m going to be listening to this obsessively for the new few weeks. I am so not disappointed, and was rather happy to give them my $10. If you were skeptical at all about this album, I’d say you have nothing to worry about.

As for the wallpaper above, it was pretty hard to come up with a wallpaper for an album I’d never heard. And though it looks pretty simple, there were a lot of weird things put into it. The background is a blown up picture of a diamond, with a rainbow gradient over it, then the mosaic filter, and darkened a ton. The bright colored rainbow page things are from a photo of a real rainbow, but obviously I tweaked the hell out of it. And the words came from something Thom posted on Dead Air Space, so I thought it was fitting to place it in there.

I hope everyone has enjoyed all of the wallpapers! I know next time I’m going to give myself a much larger head start, and not make each one of these each day I need to release them.
It’s going to be really nice to get back on a better sleeping pattern, haha…
