Despite calls for the whisper-folk pair to make Øye’s house and techno background more apparent, Declaration of Dependence doubles down on hushed Scandinavian understatement. No drums, unless you count slapped fretboards or squeaking fingers: just two voices, two acoustic guitars, and occasional cello, viola, or one-finger piano plinks. Along with sharper songwriting focus, this go-for-broke softness makes for the most durable, rewarding Kings of Convenience album yet– a Pink Moon to past efforts’ Five Leaves Left. Barring a last-minute José González surprise, it’s also probably the best new full-length of its style you’ll hear this year.”
I finally got a chance to see Radiohead live at the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival on Friday. This was one of the best live shows that I’ve ever seen despite some audio problems.
Here are some video highlights. My camera was pretty shaky but the audio quality isn’t too bad.

Have you ever wondered what a reggae version of Radiohead’s “Let Down” would sound like? Surprisingly, not bad!
Yes, this has been out for a while and yes, mash-up’s jumped the shark a while ago, but I’m still enjoying this this one.
