    Default Who is the next Radiohead?

    I know this has been discussed already but I have been listening to a lot of Grizzly Bear lately and it has occurred to me that these guys could potentially be the “Next Radiohead”. I can’t think of any of the “new” bands out now that are making something like this and doing it in a pop song setting (3 to 5 minute pieces). So I had the idea of asking the board, who do you, think can/will be the next Radiohead?

    Another band I can say if perhaps The Animal Collective. I think the only thing that is holding AC back is maybe that they have tracks that seem to stretch on for days as opposed to the pop song setting that allows people to get into them quicker. If AC ever decides to move in that direction then we might have own new “Radiohead”.

    Your thought?

    Arcade Fire is interesting, but I can't see them maintaining things... It's possible. I would say Grizzly Bear. They have serious staying power and they are also appealing to pretty much everyone. I would love to see AC get big, but I just can't see it happening.

    I don't think Grizzly Bear are quite as accessible as Radiohead, to be honest. And I mean, Radiohead do some weird shit sometimes, but then there's Creep...

    EDIT:

    To be honest, I really don't think Arcade Fire will remain a single unit as long as Radiohead have. Even if they did keep up the output, I don't think they'll last indefinitely. I mean, I know for such a big band they have a curiously democratic dynamic, but I dunno. I just can't imagine that, at the very least, the middle seven will all stay put forever.

    No one has metioned Deerhunter yet?

    Actually, I vote Animal Collective.

    Arcade Fire are different... they're just not Radiohead.
    And I don't mean that in a negative way. They just occupy a separate space in the universe.

    Grizzly Bear, I love, but... Radiohead? I don't see it.

    Musically speaking, they have the same reflective-melancholy atmosphere to their music... though genre/stylistically its currently quite different.

    Maybe Radiohead will be the next Radiohead. Who better to be them than them?

    That's the thing though, isn't it? We can't just have "another Radiohead", because Radiohead have already been Radiohead. We'd need a band who doesn't sound like them, but has the same kind of impact.

    Animal Collective is amazing. They are my most listened to artist over the past year, since I began listening to them. Can't wait for the new album and the tour.

    I'm really getting into Deerhunter as of late, I see them being around for a long time.

    AC is most definitely not going to be the next Radiohead. Their sound isn't accessible enough for alot of people; not everyone can enjoy them.

    I love them. But they won't be on the same level as Radiohead.

    I think you missed the point actually. AC and Grizzly Bear DO NOT sound "like" Radiohead. What I mean by the "Next Radiohead" is a band that takes the mantle that Radiohead currently has. Being highly respected by their peers, puts out amazing records one after another, builds on becoming a fantastic live act and is overall accesible to a wider audience. After the next act emerges then people will ask "Who will be the next .... ?".

    Like I stated if they can move into a pop setting then they can probably achieve that.

    I'm surprised no one's mentioned them yet, but now that Jonathan Meiburg has left Okkervil River to focus on his band full time, I think Shearwater's got a shot to get absolutely massive. Their sound on some songs is very Radiohead-like, they keep their songs mostly under 5 minutes, are experimental, yet accessible and are just plain fantastic. Their new album hasn't gotten as much press as I would've thought, but seriously, go check out Rook right now if you haven't and let me know what you think.

    I just don't think Grizzly and Arcade are really as experimental as Radiohead, that's the difference I see... Radiohead didn't necessarily invent any new genres, but they did pretty much always push the envelope.

    That's why I vote Deerhunter and AC.

    Deerhunter just don't have enough out yet though, and their sound is quite "diverse" yet.

    Arcade Fire is the joy to Radiohead's sadness.

    YES that's it.

    funny...this quote from Pitchfork review of the new Deerhunter sums it up nicely...

    Like Trent Reznor, Cox is a classic outcast. But the real question is why Deerhunter aren't opening for Radiohead, as their friends in Liars and Grizzly Bear have done. Admirers and detractors of Deerhunter's 2007 breakout album, Cryptograms, all seemed to agree on one thing: Despite its status as an underground hit, it didn't explore totally new sounds. Radiohead didn't invent krautrock or avant-garde electronic music, either-- let alone UK post-punk, American alt-rock, or the Beatles. Instead, what they've done is use a stunning assortment of shrewd instrumental ideas to express contemporary anxiety and alienation, all in the form of pop songs, on albums conceived to be more than the sum of their parts. Deerhunter don't sound a lot like Radiohead, but they've absorbed the UK rock icons' outlook as fully as anybody.

    Probably the Arcade Fire. If the Shins had produced a massive, cross-radio alt. hit last year, they might had been a contender, but they didn't. So AF it is.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    Win's said a couple of times that The Bends was one of the things that made him want to make music. Can't decide was that in a "Jesus, this is depressing. I better write Wake Up or take drugs or something." kinda way.

    Although, let's face it, he's hardly all sprinkles and glitter himself, Win.
