Earlier in the year it was rumored that masked emcee DOOM (Formerly MF DOOM) was working with Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke on a collabortive album. It looks like that rumor may become true as we get our first taste (aside from Thom Yorke's remix of DOOM's Gazzillion Ear) of the latest collaboration from Radiohead's Thom Yorke & Jonny Greenwood and the man himself (no imposter) DOOM. Check out the track "Retarded Fren" from the upcoming compilation celebrating the tenth anniversary of Lex Records. Now can we get a new Madvillain record? Is that too much to ask?
Haruki Murakami's Norwegian Woodhas been turned into a feature length film, which in its self is something to get excited about. Then earlier in the year word got out than none other than Radiohead's Jonny Greenwood would score the Original soundtrack for the film. Back in March he performed an orchestral piece for the BBC with an Orchestra which was recorded for a broadcast on Radio 3. This was also when it was revealed that the score known as “Dogwood” at the time, would be used for theforthcoming film based on the previously mentioned novel, Norwegian Wood.
Last week the score (and film) got it's Japanese release and today you can take a listen to the least orchestral track on the score. It features some nice guitar work as well as some frantic finger work creating a heart felt piece as an end result. But, I wouldn't expect anything less from Jonny, as I know he is capable of great things when sat playing his guitar. The track is titled "Don't Read What Hasn't Been Baptized by Time" and you can hear it in full below.You can pick up the score over on the Japanese Amazon if you can't wait to get your hands on it. I'm looking forward to seeing the film upon it's release next year in the UK.
