To celebrate the pioneering electronic music experimentation of Radiohead
and the roughly 15-and-a-half birthday of their pioneering pay-what-you want release of their album In Rainbows
please enjoy this pioneering (and surprisingly upbeat) pay-what-you-want release of In Rainbows covered using samples from N64 games (mostly Mario 64)

I think I would prefer it with an actual vocal part though. Like this is very admirable but I would be deep into it if it still had Thom singing over the top. I don't think there's any N64 sample that's not going to disappoint me when I'm waiting for the voice to come in on Nude.

It really is fantastic otherwise.

I mean yeah I guess I can try to appreciate it in an "I'm being trolled" way, but the thing is it just is genuinely gorgeous in a non-joke way except!

Wow this is exactly what I never knew I needed. Reminds me of this remix/cover/transmogrification of Nude that I’m very glad is still online. (previously)

Love that it keeps inching up the Bandcamp charts.

Oh hey, there’s a YouTube channel with a few more covers.
