It goes without saying: Radiohead‘s “Codex” remains one of the sharpest cuts off the group’s latest LP, The King of Limbs. Affecting, heart-wrenching, and isolated – three solid adjectives to describe one equally solid track. Apparently Joel Zimmerman, aka deadmau5, is a big fan of the tune, too. That could only explain why he spent so much time on a sample-less cover. Utilizing only computer effects, Zimmerman’s cover strips away Thom Yorke’s falsetto, and replaces it with some digital whistling. Surprisingly, it’s just as effective. Now, that doesn’t mean we’ll ever replace Yorke with a computer, but it’s reassuring to know the power of Radiohead has the ability to evolve beyond human capabilities.
