Two New Radiohead Songs

Have you guys heard the two new Radiohead track that are floating around the internet?

The first is My Twisted Words. Sounds pretty good, with a "The Cure" sized intro before the vocal starts. Check it out below:



Then we have this tribute to Harry Patch, titled... well... Harry Patch. Harry was the last living British Solider to have fought in World War 1.



You can download These Are My Twisted Words for free right here at Radiohead official site, complete with artwork in a nice neat little .zip file.

Dexter Season 4

I don't talk about it much, but I have to confess, I absolutely love the show Dexter. Maybe it's my preoccupation with Lost discussion that has pushed my Dexter rants to the wayside, after all there is only so much room on my blog that I can dedicate to serialized TV. But since I just finished watching season 3 and season 4 is coming up quickly in the next few months.

Oh yeah, and John Lithgow has joined the cast as Dexter's serial killing rival. So stoked.



Michael C. Hall is a fantastic actor, right up there with Christina Bale when it comes to portraying heartless serial killers, and yet somehow he has managed, over the course of 3 seasons, to give Dexter a heart without making him any less believable.

College News Review

Check out the brand new review from CollegeNews.com of Behold! A Pale Horse by The Ghost And The Grace.

"'How Far You Go' has a backwater folk feel with its banjo-laden verses and low-pitched lyrics, but musically explodes its refrains with alternative rock while showcasing Anderson’s vocal prowess. 'Antlion' relaxes with its meandering banjo and laid-back vocals, leaving you satisfied and pacified. On 'Genetics,' the single from the album, Anderson takes the alternative genre’s best attributes and adds his own subtle folk topping."

Dylan's Christmas Is Coming

Today I finished up the writing fifteenth demo for the next full length Ghost And The Grace record and am debating whither or not to record a few more to choose from. While I consider my options, however, there is another project that I am going to dive into, which is The Ghost And The Grace Christmas record, or EP, or whatever. The funny thing about making Christmas records is that if you want to have it done in time for the holiday season then you need to start it really early when the sun is shining and Christmas is the last thing on your mind.

Apparently Bob Dylan has the same idea, because suddenly a bunch of people are posting around the net that the legend plans on releasing his first ever Christmas record this year. Some songs that have already been confirmed are "Must Be Santa", "I'll be Home for Christmas", "Here Comes Santa Claus" and "O Little Town of Bethlehem". The concept of this is actually pretty exciting for me, as I am always thrilled for more good Christmas music. I only hope that he goes the extra step of not just covering the classics but also adding to that ever expanding catalog of holiday tracks in existence.



Scott Marshall, an author who penned a book about Dylan, is quoted as saying "At first glance it may sound bizarre, but I don't think Dylan cares much about what his detractors might make of it". I don't get that at all, some of the best Christmas albums are folk records.

The Album As An Art Gallery

A late night / early morning discussion of how the album as an emotional journey is no longer a relevant metaphor.
