Does the world really need more Radiohead? Probably not. But one thing we could all use a little more of is the music of the Pablo Honeys, Seattle’s all-female Radiohead tribute band. In this five-piece (most members double as volunteers for Rain City Rock Camp for Girls), Thom Yorke’s androgynous whimper takes on a decidedly feminine tone thanks to Aileen Paron’s gossamer lead vocals, yet the songs themselves are performed faithfully close to the originals. From OK Computer to King of Limbs, these ladies have perfected the genre they call Radiohead—and it’s a little less creepy when they do it. pablohoneys.com
