Radiohead released their eighth studio album to some fanfare earlier in 2011. Forthcoming is TKOL RMX 1234567, an two-CD remix album of content from The King of Limbs.

The pitfalls of remix albums are not that difficult to determine. Whether from artists rushing a remix to earn a quick buck and get their name seen, or from limitations and hurried timetables enforced; almost always remix albums come out inconsistent in their quality.

Suited to the remix treatment or not, Radiohead have at least turned the album over to a superb collection of electronic artists. With remixes by Caribou, Jamie xx, Four Tet, Jacques Greene, and Shed, the artists featured are both talented and well versed in the field of remixes. Featured below is a remix of Bloom by Blawan off the album, a fair departure away from the sound of the original.

Other remix I'm particularly digging is Jacques Greene's remix of Lotus Flower.

Luckily for me, all 7 parts are now out because I'm not Japanese and I really can't be arsed waiting until the 10th of Oct (and apparently, neither can Irving)

yeah, all of the remixes on this single were great. probably my favourite after Jacques Greene. Are the new one's any good? haven't bothered to listen yet.

my biggest qualm with this whole thing is that the artwork for the individual releases is awesome yet the art for the full release is terrible

Awesome, blawan rules. Had no idea this (the song or remix album) was a thing.

such a good album. my only real beef with it is that i don't like when they put two remixes of the same song right next to each other on the album.
