Julian Lage Announces Tour Dates Including Village Vanguard Residency


Following the non-LP teaser “Santa Teresa”—hailed as “beautifully ambient” by NPR—Ed O’Brien of Radiohead has unveiled the first impression of his debut album under the moniker of EOB.

Written by O’Brien, “Brasil” is a near 9-minute epic that begins life as a plaintive ballad built on the bare bones of O’Brien’s voice and acoustic guitar before blooming into a grandiose motorik rave-up anchored by the rock solid drumming of Omar Hakim and a hypnotic bassline from O’Brien’s Radiohead bandmate Colin Greenwood. Produced by Flood (who also contributes System 700 synth) and mixed by Alan Moulder, the dimensions of “Brasil” are further expanded by engineer Adam “Cecil” Bartlett’s programming, David Okumu’s guitar playing, and recording engineer Richie Kennedy’s sampler programming.
