The Rhythmic Surprise of Syncopation
Treat yourself to this ten minute explanation of syncopation, using the deceivingly complex rhythmic basis of Radiohead’s “Videotape” as its example. “Videotape” is my favorite of the Radiohead ‘dirge’ songs but what I didn’t realize is that it actually grooves at a very un-dirge-like 155 BPM.
Vox has been on fire with their videos for a while now. I watch them all. Check more of their output HERE.
