LIVESound: Radiohead's The King of Limbs: Live From the Basement

Outside from a last-minute set at this year's Glastonbury, experimental alt-rock juggernauts, Radiohead, have laid low in terms of live performances since this year's "surprise" release of LP 8, The King of Limbs. Much like they did for In Rainbows, a new in-studio special produced by From the Basement and distributed by the BBC has Thom Yorke and company playing every track off the divisive new eighth album (plus a brand new song) in the small, intimate setting of -- where else? -- a basement. Producer and longtime friend of the band's, Nigel Godrich, fills his role as a the "sixth member" here, and this YouTube video even includes some nifty annotations to select which track out of the 55-minute long session you'd like to watch. If you're a television purist, The King of Limbs: Live From the Basement airs July 23rd here in the States on Palladia. Now, how about some tour dates, guys?...
