When you are Radiohead, you don’t just release an album. Following the bow of their ninth record, A Moon Shaped Pool, in early May, the band commissioned a set of short video vignettes to go alongside a number of the songs.
Featuring Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster) directing Denis Levant, High-Rise‘s Ben Wheatley dragging a floating body across rocks, and Submarine director Richard Ayoade shooting what could’ve been a deleted scene from Trash Humpers, each present a distinct interpretation of the respective song.
They’ve now completed the vignettes, although they note that their latest is the final one in the “current series,” so perhaps we can expect another round soon, considering “Burn the Witch,” “Daydreaming,” “Decks Dark,” “Present Tense,” and “True Love Waits” aren’t represented here.
Check them all out in the order the songs appear on the album, followed by a full stream, below:

This week in Radiohead’s weekly Friday vignettes, the band released a short video of their song “Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor Rich Man Poor Man Beggar Man Thief.” (Whew, try saying that ten times fast.) The song is off their ninth studio album, “A Moon Shaped Pool,” and is the sixth video in a series of interpretations for each track.
The clip for “Tinker Tailer” is directed by English actor and writer Richard Ayoade, known for his role as Maurice Moss in “The It Crowd.” The eerie video is shot from the point of view of a driver at night, who runs into a group of strange people all dressed in black and carrying briefcases. As they look left and right and huddle up, an explosion is seen in the distance. Then a masked person comes out from the driver’s left view.

This past weekend we here in Washington DC got a lot of snow. Um… “A whole lot of snow”? …Okay, how about, “a metric ton of snow”? Ooh… “The fourth heaviest snowstorm dating to 1884.” There. I think that sums it up nicely.
Given this, I (not even kidding) have not left my home in five days (but I’m still sane! No really, I promise! The purple bunnies in my pantry told me so.) And of course, being a very practical person, since I knew the storm was coming I ensured I was well-stocked with all the necessary items beforehand. But then, around the end of Day 1, as the snowdrifts began inching into the two-foot range on my windowsills, I began to wonder what I would do to entertain myself if the power went out (taking with it, one might assume, the Internet).
“Ah-ha!” I said to myself. “I have »
