Today, Radiohead came out with the surprising news that their long awaited eighth album, The King of Limbs can be digitally bought and listened to Saturday, February 19th from this website. They bill it as “the first newspaper album” and there’s multiple ways to buy, with collector editions available at the website. Now that the LP’s coming, here’s hoping for a new tour announcement very soon.
Some one else coming out with plenty of new music this month is Chiddy Bang producer and beat-maker Xaphoon Jones. Last January he came out with the incredible Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Vol 1, with samples and mashups by MGMT, Bob Marley, Kanye West, Passion Pit, Biggie, and many more. You can grab it for free here.
This month, he plans to release the follow up, Xaphoon Jones Mixtape Volume 2. Here’s a demo sample that dropped a little while ago that’s rumored to be on the mixtape. It’s a ghostly dubstep remix of Radiohead’s Videotape off the In Rainbows album:
