Okay, this is a pretty smart and ambitious concept: an all reggae and dub remake of Radiohead’s OK Computer, entitled Radiodread (okay, the title is hokey) and overseen by producers in Easy Star All-Stars. This is the same team who released the Pink Floyd tribute, Dub Side of the Moon. I stumbled upon the new disc at Waterloo Records last night, and couldn’t stop listening. It’s a no-brainer project when you consider the signficant mid-tempo and pyschedelic vibe of Radiohead’s landmark album. The CD features track-for-track covers, including Toots and the Maytals taking on “Let Down” and a perfectly intoxicating “Karma Police” by Citizen Cope. Check it out.
