Airbag / How Am I Driving? EP

While there technically isn't any "new" music on this disc, it's been quite a bit more expensive to get your hands on it until this point. Previously, most of the songs on this EP were available only on import singles off their OK Computer album for about 10 bucks a pop. Luckily for the USA, Thom and the boys have put together this nicely priced 7-song offering (although it still doesn't compile nearly all of their expensive b-side imports) to tide us over until their next release.

If you've heard OK Computer, you already have a good idea of the direction this batch of songs is headed. The songs range from electronic sounding instrumentals ("Meeting In The Aisle"), to slowly building ("A Reminder") and noise rocking ("Palo Alto"). While it's not a lot of music (25 minutes), it does offer up a good batch of sonics from one of the best and most interesting bands out there today.
