The Butcher by Radiohead

I was totally shocked to get an email (not personally) from Radiohead saying:

So here are two tracks for your listening pleasure: Supercollider and The Butcher. We released these as a limited edition 2 track 12inch vinyl to mark Independent Record Store Day last Saturday, April 16 … so in case you missed out and didn’t get a copy here they are.

So since Radiohead decided to share these tracks, I thought I’d share them with you. I’ve listened to these a couple times and I’m definitely more of a fan of The Butcher. I think Supercollider kind of sounds like something off of Hail to the Thief, which is ok, but not my personal favorite period. The Butcher sounds like something off of In Rainbows. It’s a really nice song, kinda’ dark and definitely rad sounding.

    Awesome, Thanks for sharing. I agree, The Butcher reminds me of the album In Rainbows. Nice track and I think it’s cool that they were representing Record Store Day.

    Sweet, thanks! Was just reading this from the US Record Store Day facebook:

    Both tracks are excellent! Kudos to Radiohead for making really good standalone singles, as well as really good albums. Not very bands do both well.
