Watch Birds of Bellwoods’ rootsy cover of Radiohead’s “Idioteque”

April 7, 2015

Last time we heard from Birds of Bellwoods they were blowing the NXNE radius clause wide open; after playing a charity show in Toronto, their festival slot was cancelled. But there’s more to them than the summer controversy they found themselves in the middle of, and soon they’ll release their second EP.

But before that, they’ll be playing shows in April and May. Today we’re excited to premiere the video for their roots-y cover of Radiohead’s “Idioteque,” a staple of their live show and a fitting taste of the kind of sound you can expect when you catch them live. And for Radioheads, a take on their mininalist classic like you’ve never heard before, complete with banjo, mandolin, acoustic guitar and double bass.

A collaboration with Current Sessions, you can watch the video below:


May 8th – Burdock Music Hall
May 26th – Hugh’s Room
