Radiohead disappeared from the interwebs Sunday, only to come back with a vengeance on Tuesday when they dropped “Burn The Witch” inducing mass hysteria.
I am not above the hysteria. I am enamored with this song.
Chalk it up to Greenwood’s minimalist orchestration, his collection of analog drum samples, or the peaks and valleys of Yorke’s crooning. I won’t be able to pick one. But, I did pick out the drum part and some samples that sound close(ish) to whatever black magic Greenwood is using.
I used all analog synth and drum machine samples for the beat. Download them here.
- Snare – Roland TR606
- Kick – Jomox Xbase 09
- Hi Hat – Teenage Engineering OP-1
Here’s the beat by itself and the transcription.
The Play Through
Here’s the play through. LP9 can’t get here fast enough.
