OKX: A Tribute to OK Computer


Over the weekend I tagged a bridge which should be visible on Google earth the next time they refresh. Floating.

Just in case the rest of you didn't catch this tidbit across the tubes, here is a free (as in love) OK Computer tribute album from Stereogum. As one of my most beloved albums, I'm still quite surprised at how well it holds up through re-interpretation, deconstruction and recombination. From the 'Strung out on OK Computer' (string quartet cover) to the Easy Star All Stars dub interpretation - 'Radiodread', I love it all. So do try to enjoy this one. God loves his children. Yeah.

Killer. Marissa Nadler was my favorite. All great interpretations.

Why does OK Computer continue to blow my mind after all these years? I remember sitting in my room in shock on the very first spin. I couldn't do anything but listen.

I, of course, love OK--but I can't listen to it because I've wrung it nearly out. Now I can listen to it again.

The bridge is here:

and it still looks boring and nondescript and low rez cause google hasn't updated it.

Ah well. Don't let the milk float ride your brain.

Thanks for the link by the way. I've been listening to these gems ever since. Thanks for sweetening the pot which is my life.
