Where to start with Jonny?

Recommended Posts

I love the band but, honestly, I never took the time to listen closely to most of their solo stuff. I've heard The Eraser and Amok, but never really tried anything by Jonny.

 

So, where should I start? Is he much different from Kid A/Amnesiac Radiohead?

Bodysong is more jazzy / kraut rock / electronic / all over the place.

 

His score for Norwegian Wood, a pretty whatever movie, is great, moody and really pretty orchestral / string stuff if that's more your thing.

bodysong - classical/space jazz

 

there will be blood - classical

 

norwegian wood - classical with can songs too

 

the master - classical with 40s and 50s era songs

 

inherent vice - classical with rock and 1 more can song

bodysong does seem like the logical choice to start with, if not for moon trills being best first song to hear after being born(or conceived)

 

it was actually the first solo work from anyone in the band

 

i think its 2004

I've just listened to "Moon Trills" and it's very, very gorgeous. Very Jonny Greenwood, also. It was a nice surprise and a great recommendation.

 

His music for The Master is some of those most beautiful and moving things I've ever heard.

 

After what you've said, I'm also looking forward to listen to that OST. Thanks.
