The Gloaming (Radiohead cover)

February 13, 2008 12:24 PM

My friend Mel and I have started a musical project together, and since Radiohead is our biggest mutual influence, we decided to start by covering one of their songs.

Mel's on lead vocals; I do harmony. Hohner-Gruhn acoustic guitar, Fender American Standard Telecaster, Casio keyboard, Audio Technica microphone, Line6 TonePort UXII recording interface, and GarageBand. You can keep up with us at

This is great, thanks for posting it. I haven't been here too long, but there are definitely not enough female singers (and especially female harmonies!). I look forward to what else you guys put together.

For a while I did a my-voice-and-guitar version of this song. I was invariably surprised at how well it worked given the blippy nature of the original.

's all in the voice, I suspect.

PS: This is good. My only complaint would be that it is impossible to do the Twitchy Thom dance during the wordless parts (manifestly not true of the original/live version!).

NB: That's not really a complaint.
