2+2=5 Radiohead - Introduction

Here's a little audio clip of some initial beats Radish worked out for the drums. It was just recorded with 1 stereo mic at our practice space which also doubles as my recording studio - how convenient.

The song is separated into 4 distinct parts:

-The first part is in 7/4. We decided to make the rhythm a bit more aggressive than the original.

-The second part has kind of a floaty feel. The New Loud incorporates a lot of electronic drumming, so, we thought this 2nd part would be a good place to showcase that. The electronic drum roll definitely ramps up the tension just as much or more so than the original.

-The third part is the explosive part. We needed something quite aggressive here so we chose this beat with a lot of cymbal crashes.

-The last part is rhythmically aggressive, but not in a rock sense so we'll scale back the crashing and have the rhythm be tighter here.
