My appetite was whet last week when I heard the lead single “Burn The Witch” on Spotify.   I was stoked the new album was to be released in a few days. When A Moon Shaped Pool arrived this past Sunday I was vexed:

  • It is not available on Spotify (yet Radiohead felt fine leveraging that medium for pre-release hype)
  • A crappy MP3 is overpriced at $11 – but at least it is available in 24 bit WAV for an extra $8 – God knows how long that will take to download – sorry I should be grateful
  • You can preorder the vinyl (arrival in “just” 5 weeks), but you can’t download the digital copy now (the LP comes with digital download card – but of course not 24 bit WAV)
  • You can preorder the special edition vinyl (arrives in September) and you will get the digital download now – for a mere $86.50

What kind of twisted fuck thought this up?  The same guy who came up with pay what you want 9 years ago?  Radiohead you are breaking my heart. This was supposed to be our year (seeing you live for the first time at Lollapalooza).  I am trying boys, but I am pissed.
