Thom Yorke crunks out, looks for perfect beat (Lotus Flower, King of Limbs)

Okay, so this isn’t perfect, but it’s so nearly there it’s got to be worth doing. In the new Radiohead video for Lotus Flower on King of Limbs, Thom Yorke crunks out in his inimitable fashion. So I’m watching it and thinking, only a matter of time – days, maybe even hours, before someone cuts it to a different track or does a video mashup or whatever. I’m not geeky enough to do the whole thing. Just press play on the Praise You video (at bottom – it might have to open in a separate window), then when the music starts, press play on the Radiohead one (below, but mute it). When it works, it’s wicked.

It sort of stops working for a bit halfway through when Thom Yorke is singing slowly, but kicks in again hard at 4.21 when he really goes for some crazy moves just as Praise You has its last gasp.

Why not try a few myself/yourself? Got to be some other songs that fit better… works quite well with Weapon of Choice too.

Of course, you could just forget all that and enjoy the new Radiohead song, but hey.
