Radiohead Song of the Week??
The Gloaming (Softly Open Our Mouths in the Cold) off of Hail to the Thief.
Such an awesome song. Such an awesome word–gloaming. I don’t know what it means, but I know exactly how it sounds and how it feels–shadowy, dark, foreboding and lurking from point a to point b. The song warrants a listen for even non-Radiohead fans (which really, pretty much everyone should be by now in one way or another). Even if it’s just because it’s a great example of how much energy a song can capture with relatively simple choices.
Whatever. Just listen to the damn song, especially if you can find a decent live clip. Now I’m listening to “Silver Spring” anyway, because it’s been at least two weeks.
