On the topic of drummers putting out solo debuts, Philip Selway of Radiohead releases Familial in the States on August 31. But he's already streaming four tracks via SoundCloud. That's 40% of the album you can listen to 11 days early at 0% of the price!
So far it sounds like a wistful, twisted set of haunts, and on listening it's no surprise he's spent so many years in Radiohead. Even the vocals indicate Selway has listened to more than a fair share of Thom Yorke, short of the Thom Yorke ego. It's a little sweeter, almost lullaby-esque, much less cerebral or heady, but it keeps on with the minor keys and slow strums we know from, say, "Scatterbrain (As Dead As Leaves)" or even "Nude."
