  • It definitely seems like Radiohead have something in plan for the 20th anniversary of their critically-acclaimed album OK Computer. Last week, rumors started bubbling when mysterious posters appeared across the world. Today, they band have tweeted a 29-second video to fan the flames: a young girl’s voice recites lyrics from an early draft of the song “Climbing Up the Walls.” Reddit users have theorized that there are “(approx) 21 full lines of code commented out video” and that maybe each line of code represents a day, and that something will happen on May 21st. Stay tuned, and check out a KEXP intern’s first listen to OK Computer here on the KEXP Blog. [ Consequence of Sound ]

  • Speaking of anniversaries, Soundgarden recently reissued their 1988 album Ultramega OK nearly 30 years after its original release. (Guitarist Kim Thayil talks to KEXP about it here.) And last night at Tampa’s Amalie Arena, the band dug out the album track “All Your Lies” for the first time since a 1992 show at New York’s Roseland Ballroom. Watch fan-shot footage of the performance below. The deluxe reissue of Ultramega OK is out via Sub Pop. [ Spin ]

  • Amber Coffman, formerly of Dirty Projectors, shares a fun new clip today for her single “No Coffee.” Watch as she dances through an office, proving she “needs no coffee” in this Wes Anderson-esque video. The song can be found on her debut solo album, City Of No Reply — produced by her former bandmate/boyfriend David Longstreth before their falling out. (More on that here.) The album hits stores June 2nd via Columbia Records. [ Stereogum ]

  • New York group Beach Fossils have also shared a new video, directed by frontman Dustin Payseur himself. Check out the track “Down the Line” below as Payseur walks through New York in this lo-fi clip. The new album, Somersault, is out June 2nd via Bayonet Records, and the band play Tuesday, July 11th at The Crocodile. [ Under the Radar ]
