From The Basement – Thom Yorke

Whilst searching around for a good quality version of Radiohead's new song Videotape, I came across a wonderful idea from Nigel Godrich, Radiohead's producer, to shoot a video podcast with several bands from London's Maida Vale studios. No studio audience, no presenter, just the artist's raw audio on stage shot in beautiful HD.

The price is a bit steep at £1.89 per song and £9.48 for a (6-song) show, which lasts around half an hour, but after watching the sample I decided to buy it and I couldn't be happier. Thom's performance of an acoustic version of Videotape is simply breathtaking, and I highly reccomend that everyone promptly goes out and pays out £2 on iTunes or 7digital to experience it, because he really is a bloody genius.


Show 1 also includes three tracks from The White Stripes and a jazz collaboration between one of the guys from Four Tet and some jazz musician I've never heard of.
