“After Radiohead released their most recent record, The King of Limbs, back in February, L.A.‘s Robotanists assigned themselves with the arduous task of covering the whole album within 24 hours. Their interpretation of “Codex” is their best effort, swapping the filtered piano for an electric guitar and backed by Sarah Ellquist DeBlanke’s smooth vocals.”
Also on the list… Amanda Palmer, Gnarles Barkley, Vampire Weekend, John Mayer, John Vanderslice, Punch Brothers, Jamie Cullum, Regina Spektor, Mark Ronson, Gillian Welch, Ingrid Michaelson and more!

We also did an interview with PASTE back in February, where we talked about the making of our version of the King of Limbs, and what we thought of Radiohead’s.
In that interview, Daniel DeBlanke had this to say about “Codex”…
“The record is very dry in some ways. We wanted to make ours like lush, spacey, dreamier. There’s a lot more vocal harmony and swimming in reverb. For instrumentation, all the drum beats are playable live with…all that crazy nuance in that later half of the record. It’s all viable in a more organic way. I especially loved “Codex,” and I wanted to be able to do it completely live. Right now, we could go to the show—we have a residency this month in L.A., so we have another show on Monday—and we could go there and potentially play “Codex.” It’s just so beautiful.”
