Radiohead‘s promotion for A Moon Shaped Pool has seen them show off their cinephile side. Paul Thomas Anderson got the ball rolling with his music video for “Daydreaming,” while filmmakers like Richard Ayoade, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Ben Wheatley created video vignettes for Instagram for various songs on the album. And after a summer of touring, the band have returned to Anderson who has directed a simple, and quite lovely video for “Present Tense.”
Shot live in Tarzana, California, the video sees Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood and a Roland Cr-78 coming together for a stripped down version of “Present Tense.” It’s intimate stuff, the direction is unfussy, and the result is quite intimate.

After helming the music video for Radiohead’s “Daydreaming” earlier this year, Paul Thomas Anderson has collaborated with the band once again. PTA’s live video for “Present Tense” — which, like “Daydreaming,” is taken from the album “A Moon Shaped Pool” — is considerably more straightforward: It simply features Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood performing the song in question. Watch it below.
The footage was shot during a live performance in Tarzana, California last month. PTA is no stranger to music videos, having worked with Fiona Apple on multiple occasions, plus Jon Brion, Michael Penn and Aimee Man (whose music played a significant role in “Magnolia”). Several theaters across the country screened “Daydreaming” on 35mm earlier this year; PTA and the band sent a note to the Music Box in Chicago that read, “We’ve made a film, »

Is your brain still recovering from the deep-dive analysis into the broken, beating heart of Paul Thomas Anderson and Radiohead‘s video for “Daydreaming”? Well, now it’s time to not get too heavy and just keep it light (and keep it moving), for the Inherent Vice director has helmed a live video for”Present Tense,” another track from A Moon Shaped Pool
As the title will illustrate, it features just Thom Yorke, Jonny Greenwood, a CR78, and a few other instruments. Filmed on location in Tarzana, California on August 3rd in PTA’s garden (according to Nigel Godrich), it’s a no-frills video, but warmly captures a relaxed performance from the duo. Check it out below, along with the winner of their “Daydreaming” vignette contest, and a lovely recent photo of PTA hanging out with Edgar Wright in London — a place that will become quite familiar to him over the next year. »

Radiohead has finally announced the winner of their fan-made short film contest. Back in July, the English rock band asked fans to submit a vignette using a new one-minute version of their song “Daydreaming,” tied to the release of their album “A Mood Shaped Pool.”
The group shared the winning clip, a trippy and colorful animated video created by Tim Urlacher (who goes by the name Affinitia), on their Instagram account writing: “Finally, the winner of the vignette competition, thank you to everyone who took part. Our favorite is from Affinitia.”
Tom Yorke even called the vignette “extraordinary” on Twitter.
The vignette winner — extraordinary! https://t.co/guzyjH4lZo

There’s a new music video featuring the beautifully haunting vocals of Thom Yorke, but it’s not from Radiohead.
Yorke has collaborated with English electronic musician Mark Pritchard on the track “Beautiful People,” from Pritchard’s album “Under the Sun.” The music video, which premiered at Sundance’s Next Fest, ran on The Guardian on Thursday.
Directed by documentary filmmaker and cinematographer Michal Marczak, the video follows an unidentifiable person, whose head sometimes features a holograph of Yorke, walking around a strange land that doesn’t appear to be governed by the laws of physics. Marczak has directed three documentaries, including 2012’s “Fuck for Forest” about a bizarre charity that raises money for the environmental by selling home-made erotic movies online.
“Beautiful People” has nothing to do with Radiohead, which last year wrote a tune for the James Bond film “Spectre” that sadly didn’t end up being included in the film, »

Paul Thomas Anderson’s excellent video for Radiohead’s “Daydreaming” gets broken down in this video essay by Rishi Kaneria. While his analysis involves some questionable number crunching — and specifically the number 23, which calls to mind all kinds of conspiracy theories — it’s also a solid analysis of the easter eggs in the video that tell the story of the dissolution of Thom Yorke’s longterm relationship. »

“Like many great works of art, Radiohead‘s latest music video makes you struggle for its inner meaning,” Rishi Kaneria posits in his new video essay, “The Secrets of Daydreaming,” which dissects the band’s Paul Thomas Anderson-directed collaboration. “It’s a film that is stubbornly ambiguous and resolute at guarding its personal secrets. The first time you watch it, you get the sense that, like an iceberg, much of its weight lies beneath the surface. But if you were willing to take a pick-axe to its icy shell you will find that at its core, there is a warm, beating heart — even if that heart may be broken.”
The obvious visual metaphor is first presented, as the video represents the choices Thom Yorke has made in his life — never going back through the same door, ultimately searching for meaning, and ending up alone. More intriguingly, Kaneria argues that »

The download service continues to smarten up its act with this festival hit, which sees five directors make short films of each other’s dreams
Though its name has become synonymous with illegal downloading, BitTorrent is no more responsible for your little brother’s dodgy Game Of Thrones bootlegs than Tdk was for the home taping your mum did in the 80s. Still, things rarely go well for organisations closely associated with copyright infringement (just ask Napster), which might explain why the company is so keen to talk about BitTorrent Now, its collection of legally sanctioned download “bundles”.
Until now, the most successful bundles have been musical offerings from the likes of Thom Yorke, but finally it seems the film industry is waking up to the mainstream potential of a technology that helped 47 million people pirate Interstellar last year. This week, BitTorrent Now released a pay-what-you-want bundle containing the omnibus »

Subverting the Unexpected
At the end of the 20th century, Bobcat Goldthwait’s legacy read like a cheap joke: He was a screaming comedian from the eighties best known as Zed in the “Police Academy” franchise who once tried at his hand at directing a movie (“Shakes the Clown”). Those achievements barely skimmed the surface of Goldthwait’s ability, as the ensuing years made clear, when Goldthwait completely transformed his career into one of the most provocative American filmmakers working today. With the microbudget “Sleeping Dogs Lie” (aka “Stay”), Goldthwait showed his potential to funnel taboo subject matters into oddly touching, relatable human dramas, a proclivity he kicked up to a whole new level with the subversive black comedy “World’s Greatest Dad,” which features Robin Williams in one of his all-time great roles.
Goldthwait has kept innovating, with each new movie offering a fresh perspective on the naive assumptions »

The deal comes at a time of renewed interest in the subject following the recent Panama Papers scandal.
Devilworks has also continued its move into documentaries with the acquisition of Tribeca premiere Killing Them Safely.
Look in certain corners nowadays and it starts to feel like Radiohead‘s taken over the world. Two excellent music videos and release of their new album, A Moon Shaped Pool, might be enough, no matter how desperately the latter is missing a hyphen. (That’s going to bother me until my dying day.) But now those going to the movies can see an aging, particularly moody Thom Yorke on the big screen — and 35mm! Further making a point of well-known celluloid fetishism, Paul Thomas Anderson sent several lucky theaters prints of his Radiohead collaboration, “Daydreaming,” which is becoming a customary pre-show entertainment.
New York’s Metrograph; Los Angeles’ New Beverly, Cinefamily, Aero, and Egyptian; Austin’s Alamo Ritz and South Lamar; and Chicago’s Music Box are screening the material in various forms. Metrograph will do so before all 35mm prints this week; two of the L.A. outfits »

Radiohead’s newest album, “A Moon Shaped Pool,” is quickly proving to be the rock equivalent of “Lemonade.” Thom Yorke’s band has released two daring music videos in the run up to this new release: “Burn The Witch — a stop-motion remake of the classic horror film “The Wicker Man” — and “Daydreaming,” a live-action short by “Inherent Vice” director Paul Thomas Anderson. Much like Beyonce’s collaboration with short film directors, Radiohead’s creations are being praised for treating music videos as a medium for bold cinematic expression. Now Anderson is taking his music video and sending it out as 35mm prints to repertory. »

Director Paul Thomas Anderson has been returning to his music video roots quite a bit lately, churning out not one but two new joints for Joanna Newsom in recent months, and he's now back behind the camera for Radiohead in support of their soon-to-street album. Read More: Watch: Paul Thomas Anderson Makes A Joanna Newsom Painting in 'Divers' Music Video The band has just released their music video for "Daydreaming," which features Anderson's directorial talents and frontman Thom Yorke taking center stage as a wandering leading man who, we can only presume, is doing some pretty serious daydreaming while strolling around a number of visually arresting locales (including a particularly confusing parking lot -- feel that, Thom!). What starts as a city-set jaunt eventually turns intimate, startling and more than a bit alienating, complete with a final twist that only leads to still more gorgeous imagery. It's already a PTA all-timer. »

And now they’re raising the stakes with a video directed by none other than Paul Thomas Anderson. “Daydream” features Thom Yorke walking through a variety […]

Over the weekend, Radiohead made waves in the rock world by suddenly erasing their entire Internet presence. Their Facebook page went blank. So did Thom Yorke’s Twitter feed. Their website gradually faded to white. What did it all mean? The answer was revealed Tuesday, when the band released an excellent stop-motion video for their new single, “Burn The Witch.” At a time when artistic music videos are getting attention thanks to Beyonce’s “Lemonade,” Radiohead picked the right time to unveil a video that takes a page from horror movie history. Directed by Chris Hopewell, the animated video is a toy-like. »

Radiohead has effectively deleted its presence on the Internet, scrubbing the band’s social media accounts of all postings. Radiohead Disappears From Social Media Radiohead has inexplicably removed all content from its social media pages, including all profile and cover photos, leaving the pages completely blank. Frontman Thom Yorke has wiped his Twitter page clean as well without […]

Radiohead whet fans’ appetites Sunday morning as the band’s official site gradually disappeared from view, the entire homepage fading into white. Part of an apparent publicity stunt, the band’s official Facebook and Twitter pages also got wiped of all previous content, and Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke’s Twitter feed also went blank. If ghosting fans weren’t enough, the band sent its UK followers a mysterious leaflet over the weekend that read, “Sing a song of sixpence that goes/ Burn the Witch/ We know where you live.” Also Read: Radiohead Says Rogue Rep Blabbed New Album Details Without »

Music royalty has died. Prince, the massively influential and superlatively talented musician and personality, has died at 57. As complicated and strange as mourning a celebrity's death has become in 2016, it's especially fraught in the case of Prince, who for years fought a strangely noble war to keep his music offline. Recently, with the removal of his music from all online streaming services except Tidal, it's become nearly impossible to share his music, as a gesture of mourning or otherwise. So this is by no means a complete list of the Purple One's iconic performances, it's just the best ones that you can find. »
