Radiohead Debuts a New Song at Intimate LA Concert

Posted By on Mon, Jan 25, 2010 at 11:38 AM

​ Last night in LA at the tiny Henry Fonda Theater, Radiohead performed a benefit show for Oxfam International. (Proceeds from the show will benefit the organization's efforts in Haiti.) Ex-RFT colleague Randy Roberts was at the show and gives a full play-by-play right here. Of note is that Radiohead also debuted a new song, "Lotus Flower," which is a stripped-back tune based around an insistent acoustic guitar and vocalist Thom Yorke's wailing falsetto. To my ears, it sounds like PJ Harvey's quietest moments. Is there awesome, clear video? Of course.
