Bands get touchy when you tell them that they remind you of another band. Not so for Minneapolis band The Teddy Holidays. The group has their own catalog of original songs, which are incredibly wonderful and catchy in their own right, but are known for expansive takes on the material of other bands ... More >>

Fifteen years ago on Saturday, Radiohead released a follow-up to The Bends -- which two years earlier had essentially cemented them as the new leaders of Brit Pop. Called OK Computer, the album almost single-handedly destroyed the Brit styling as we knew it. (The Spice Girls helped too.) The Bends w ... More >>
Radiohead certainly had the most pre-festival buzz for Saturday, but once we got there, we found there was so much more to be excited about. Be it the seeing the reclusive Jeff Mangum, the underrated fIREHOSE or closing out the evening with a ferris wheel ride with Radiohead as the soundtrack, our t ... More >>
RadioheadSprint Center, Kansas CitySunday, March 11, 2012With Radiohead continuing to ignore the Twin Cities for some unknown, annoying reason (14 years and counting), Kansas City was the closest the band would get during the first leg of their 2012 U.S. tour for The King Of Limbs. So, 18,000 ... More >>
Photo by Kevin WestenbergEarlier today, Radiohead announced the first batch of live dates for their 2012 U.S. tour, once again skipping the Twin Cities as they have every year since 1997. While the band are expected to announce further tour dates in the future, you have to wonder what exactly it' ... More >>
Back in February, Radiohead released King of Limbs to international befuddlement -- do we like this? can we? I do! me too! -- that had zero effect on my neighbors' ability to play the record nonstop for at least a month (not mad). It might have been what you'd call a 'grower,' a word that people ... More >>

This afternoon, at locations across Planet Earth, Radiohead's army of temp truck drivers will be delivering a not-affiliated-with-an-album, cheekily-named newspaper, The Universal Sigh. (Minneapolis will have papers at two distribution points tomorrow.) The carbon-neutral, hazily-defined project ... More >>
Leave it to Radiohead to do something this random: Next week, to coincide with the physical release of their new album, The King of Limbs, the band will distribute free copies of a Radiohead-produced newspaper titled The Universal Sigh to 60 different locations around the world. And, somewhat unb ... More >>
Radiohead's King Of Limbs was "quietly" released last Friday, and the world of music quickly mounted a critical offensive in the form of tweets, tumblings, feverishly-typed blogs, and YouTube memetics. It was a race to be the first to call it "sublimity in sonority" or "boring fucking drivel" or ... More >>
In the past decade, Minus the Bear has become akin to an indie-cult kool-aid; with the release of their fourth full-length album Omni, this under-the-radar band is now up in our faces, and apparently not going anywhere. They're no longer just holding down a subliminal group of fans, they've offic ... More >>
