“if people get it, they wouldn’t think it’s depressing. when people always say that fucking annoying thing about how my work’s so depressing, well it’s not because.. it’s just words, and i put the words to music which i think is an uplifting thing, otherwise there would be no point in doing this at all.”

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    I’ve never heard a version of “No Surprises” that didn’t completely break my heart.

    In a good way, of course.

    Lovely, thank you. I’ve had Lucky on repeat for the past week, it’ll be nice to have yet another version.

    Seriously, that’s exactly right.

    It would be interesting to go through time and talk to ‘fans’ of all of history’s giants – DaVinci, Shakespeare, Einstein, you name it. I bet you’d find the same ambivalence about them as you do with Radiohead with most people.

    Thom Yorke is a towering genius and it won’t be til we’re long gone that people will understand it.

    Thank you so much for posting these! But the last link doesn’t seem to be working anymore. I’m not sure if it’s just a temporary glitch but I thought I’d let you know.

    Saw Radiohead in Edinburgh last night. There are no words.
