I feel like there are so many remixes for the King of Limbs... yet I've never really wanted to listen to any of them.

Someone give me one TKOL remix to check out. Your favorite, or the best one, or whatever.

Every Jamie xx remix should have a Childish Gambino verse like his Adele remix.

Couldn't pick just one


The Four Tet remix of Separator is also particularly good.


^ This is a remix that was done using stems from multiple album tracks.

This is also old news. From November. But irregardless the Jamie XX remix that made it on the album is a 2 minute long joke of a remix. Subsequently 2 other remixes (which were created simultaneously, he isn't just sitting down and making more every 2 weeks) were released, one on an acetate 12" sold at an XL auction and the other on the digital-only release TKOL RMX 8. They're all alternate versions of each-other with different parts, lengths, and pacings. But they have all been out since November.

Young Turks, being a shitty trendy ass label like it is, just wants to repackage an old Jamie XX remix that isn't even that good. I agree it's starting to get a little out of control, but in it's favor, about 3/4ths of the remixes on the double CD are really, really good.

I think it should have just stopped with the 7 limited edition 12"s and digital release of those. No need to even do the compact disc version, too unimportant in this day and age. I really loved The King of Limbs though and hearing different interpretations of these songs is pretty cool.

I whole heartedly agree with everything you just said. The Jamie XX remixes I found to be very limp, but so many people have engaged with the whole band wagon system that they failed to acknowledge that his versions turned out to some of the worst to come from the whole project.

It album itself was clearly a project targeted at devout radiohead fans though, no need to even remember it in a years time. it is good, but the longevity of it is very suspect

Yup. I consider myself to be fairly obsessed so of course I was going to be stoked that they were releasing a 12" with 2-3 unheard remixes every 2 weeks. Any new Radiohead releases excite me. I feel like it was something Thom really wanted to do, so I'm glad it happened. The people who are freaking out about it and thinking that Radiohead's trying to rip them off are exactly the type of people who the project wasn't intended for.

The Caribou one is good.
