New Radiohe_ad

In Rainbows, the long-awaited (by me, anyway) new album from Radiohead, just up for download direct from the band. You pay what you want for it, from 0 to £100. I paid £7.50, which is about $11, about what you’d pay on iTunes except that iTunes doesn’t take all but $1.50 of it.

That’s right, a major rock band self-distributing: no label or retailer in the middle, which has ’em quaking in their Alberto Guardianis, especially since it seems to be working.

My first pass through the album doesn’t disappoint (“Bodysnatchers” is a particular standout): if you love Radiohead, you’ll love it.

If you don’t, well, you better not click Her_e!
