Listened A Light for Attracting Attention, by The Smile from The Smile

The Smile will release their highly anticipated debut album A Light For Attracting Attention on 13 May, 2022 on XL Recordings.

The 13- track album was produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich and mastered by Bob Ludwig. Tracks feature strings by the London Contemporary Orchestra and a full brass section of contempoarary UK jazz players including Byron Wallen, Theon and Nathaniel Cross, Chelsea Carmichael, Robert Stillman and Jason Yarde.

The band, comprising Radioheadโ€™s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and Sons of Kemetโ€™s Tom Skinner, have previously released the singles You Will Never Work in Television Again, The Smoke, and Skrting On The Surface to critical acclaim.

There are some albums which gel straight away, while others take there time to sink in. It took a few listens to settle into this album. In the end, like Chris Deville, I was left wondering how this was not a Radiohead album.

The more I heard from A Light For Attracting Attention, the more the question gnawed at me: Why isnโ€™t this a Radiohead album?
