DJ Spooky and Joshua Roman cover Radiohead’s Everything In Its Right Place

The Voice Project is an ambitious undertaking designed to bring attention and support to the child soldiers and women of war-ravaged Uganda through music. Specifically, The Voice Project has artists cover songs which are then recorded on video and documented here. Past artists contributing have included Andrew Bird, Joan As Police Woman, Billy Bragg, Mike Mills, and Peter Gabriel.

Recently, DJ Spooky and cellist Joshua Roman collaborated on a mournful version of Everything In Its Right Place. I’m generally not a fan of most Radiohead covers but this one is pretty impressive. Check it out below.

  • You know it’s a good cover when it makes you go back and re-listen to an entire album at 12:30 am on a school night, AND THAT CELLO! I will definitely check out Joshua Roman’s other stuff when I have the time.

  • gay

  • Found it very interesting. I love when string instruments are used to as a variation, addition, or accompaniment of an already brilliant song. Had my attention. I think I would play this in my car.

  • i dont think the dj elememnt is very impressive

  • I enjoy DJ Spooky’s work, but he didn’t seem to have much to do here. Obviously, he created the backing track for the cellist, but it’s basically just a clone of what’s on Kid A, with nothing new brought to the table. An odd choice….

  • really nice work guys!

  • What a load of crap!
    One guy presses play on his laptop and the other does karaoke on a cello. Whats the point?

  • Wonderful piece of “subtle” improvisation, DJ Spooky’s dj modestly compliments Joshua’s echoic Cello, haunting and beautiful. One of my favorite Radiohead’s covers. Will definitely check out both musicians and download this improvised piece.

    Thank you, Sean for posting. :-)

  • Oops! I meant to say “rendition” piece, not “improvised”. :P

  • Wow, how lame. Basically the album track minus all the vocals and sonic detail that make the track, with a cello playing the melody. What a brilliant re-imagining.

    Love the shots of DJ spooky doing absolutely nothing.

  • Yaaaawn.

  • @Geckorlz,

    Thom expressed their approach of Kid A is to use his vocal as the blend or extension of musical instruments, not in the sense of tradition vocal. So in that sense, this rendition replaces instruments, not vocal entirely. ;-)

  • I really like it. Especially because of what the covers for.
    Props :)

  • meh.
