Marvel at Thom Yorke’s Impeccable, Two-Hour BBC Mix


You don’t have to consider Radiohead’s “Paranoid Android” the best song of the past 15 years to appreciate Thom Yorke’s impeccable musical taste. The frontman for the ever-arty U.K. rockers commandeered BBC 6 on Saturday night to show off his broad-ranging record collection. The two-hour set includes alternate versions of remixes that appeared on Radiohead’s new two-disc remix album, TKOL RMX 1234567, plus an esoteric playlist of left-leaning, boundary-pushing, deeply tuneful selections by artists from Erykah Badu to Flying Lotus. Listen to the broadcast here, and check out the full track list below. Damn, Autechre into Wiley? Do you do weddings?
