So me and the lead songwriter in my band are crazy into Radiohead. Sometimes we find parts in our original music that might sound too much like a "radiohead thing" and we have to ditch it. Just for fun we put together a new song and threw out our "too close to radiohead" rule and I thought you guys might get a kick out of listening to this track...which is definitely TKOL influenced. I'd say its mostly the beat it's very supercollidery.

I can see what you mean re: the rhythm owing a lot to RH/Supercollider, but the song itself reminds me of someone else entirely. Can't quite think who right now - maybe Cold War Kids(?)... don't wanna insult you guys.

Anyway, I enjoyed it! :) Which one are you in the band pic?

I'm on the far right. But yeah I'm not offended by cold war kids. I'm only familiar with like one of their songs but I like it, so okay. Yeah it's definitely something different but when he brought it to me I thought it was very interesting to hear the whole tkol influence in the bass and percussion. He (my friend, songwriter) had been talking about how much he loves the tightness that colin and phil have together and then the next song he brings up is this one and I was like man thats the supercollider beat we can't use that! I play a real drum set so when we start working it out as a band it will become less of a rip off.

Use the Supercollider beat! Take some of Colins bass. People who care enough to actually have a go at you for it are over protective, bitching, often stuck up, smartass, little whining fanny boys/girls of Radiohead. Music is music. No one owns shit. It's not like there's anything original about anyones music anymore anyway. Even Radioheads.

Well yesterday we played real drums over the track along with the electronic beats and they do sound awesome together so maybe we will keep it. Thanks for listening.

I like it, it does sound King of Limbs-ish but that's not a bad thing.
Also love your band's name.

if you had not said supercollider before posting the link to the song, i would not have thought of it while listening to your band´s song...

sounds good.

it is hard not to have an electronic beat that is not similar to something else...i think it is safe to say that everyone influences everyone up to a certain degree (well, with obvious exceptions)...

its obviously a completely different song just right at the beginning when that beat starts i always think supercollider. we are a three piece band that has never recorded a song with electronic beats so to us its more of "a radiohead thing" than it is to a standard listener i guess

I don't know if any of you guys recall this thread...but I wanted to share the finished product of this song now that it's done almost a year later. Anyone who is reading this for the first time, my friend wrote a song that was sort of built around the supercollider rhythm. Maybe I'm a shameless promoter but I also think it's interesting to hear the radiohead influence in other music

The track is called "Curtain"

Sounds really good dude, I like how it builds up more near the end. Are you doing the vocals or is your friend?

I'm really glad my fellow radiohead fans like it. We just finished this album after working on it for many months. We are nobodies in the Nashville rock music scene right now but im hoping we can start flooding the town with these CDs and get more gigs and make a name for ourselves. Again, thanks so much for listening.

I would rather you have instrumental parts that sounds like Radiohead than to have a lead vocalist that sounds like Thom.     If you can pull off the ethereal beauty of RH sounds while adding your own unique signature, you're already a hundred steps ahead of most up-and-coming bands.
