This month’s playlist includes the song above by Swedish rapper Yung Lean and FKA twigs. The song samples the 1987 song by Russian band Alyans (Альянс), На заре.

Radiohead- No Surprises

This song is from Radiohead’s third album, OK Computer, which was released in 1997. The video was directed by Grant Gee, who also followed the band on tour after the release of the album. The result was Meeting People is Easy, a combination music video/documentary from which the clip below is from. Thom Yorke’s struggles to hold his breath through numerous frustrating takes gives a new appreciation for the video’s visual success.

Radiohead are playing two shows in Los Angeles on 8/4 and 8/8 at The Shrine Auditorium.
