The quarantine content continues to roll in...

As you burn through every episode of Tiger King, rewatch all of The Sopranos, mainline random episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm for the 7,000th time and hope that whatever's happening eventually comes to an end, you can take at least some solace in the fact that we're now getting served up some grade-A content that otherwise wouldn't be a part of our lives. Yes, of course, I'm talking about Radiohead rolling out a weekly live series in which they're excavating pro-shot and recorded full sets from their own private archives starting this week.

Announced via Instagram, the band shared they'll be kicking things off with Live From a Tent In Dublin - October 2000, which serves as one of the group's first shows following the release of their seminal LP, Kid A. As if this first gem isn't generous enough, the UK group also shared the news they'll be "releasing one a week until either the restrictions resulting from current situation are eased, or we run out of shows. Which will be first? No-one knows." Can't possibly put it more Radiohead than that.

Now that you have no choice whether or not you fancy a quiet night in, we hereby present the first of several LIVE SHOWS from the Radiohead Public Library now coming to Radiohead’s YouTube channel. Starting tomorrow (Thursday) at 10pm UK/2pm PT/5pm ET with Live From a Tent In Dublin - October 2000, we will be releasing one a week until either the restrictions resulting from current situation are eased, or we run out of shows. Which will be first? No-one knows. Link in bio.

This latest endeavour follows the launch of the Radiohead Public Library earlier this year which serves as a digital archive cataloging rare concert footage, playlists, and other mixed media dug out of the band's vaults. 

Of course if none of this sounds quite like your thing and you want to REALLY get weird with it, there's always the surprise dump of new Aphex Twin music we got this week (come on, even Kourtney Kardashian is into it these days).  

And if that still doesn't do it for you, here's a nice video of Hayley Williams covering Phoebe Bridgers because sometimes nice things are just nice. 

woke up today a lil heavy. didn’t know why, just some days are like that. but then realized i am inextricably connected to my friend @lindseybyrnes who’s sweet father just passed away. one of her favs is Phoebe Bridgers so this self-serenade is actually for her since i can’t hang with her or hug her tight. check on your friends and send them your love. just because we are all isolated right now doesn’t mean we aren’t as close. our connection to each other defies space and time. ps @_fake_nudes_ im sorry for butchering your beautiful guitar parts. and also, this is just a perfect song.
