The Download

A decade after its release, Radiohead’s technophobic opus still computes. While you’re waiting for the next cryptic message about LP7 to be posted on the band’s Dead Air Space site, hit up Stereogum for OKX: A Tribute to OK Computer, a free, digital-only album that includes newly recorded covers from indie heavyweights such as Pedro the Lion’s David Bazan, John Vanderslice, Cold War Kids and the Twilight Sad. To keep things on an even keel, comedian David Cross’ alter ego, Samson Dalanoga, graces the emo-heavy compilation with a rendition of “Fitter, Happier” that’s funny enough to crack a smile on even Thom Yorke’s solemn mug.
