Lotus Flower Opens Up a Psychedelic World

Radiohead’s laidback ambient single, “Lotus Flower”  is an infectious journey though a psychedelic realm.  Maracas and layers of different sound effects coupled with Thom York’s falsetto crooning create a depth unique and true to the band’s former songs.  York writhes throughout an empty studio like Charlie Chaplin on Ecstacy in the minimalist music video for the single. But is there any other way to move to a song this catchy and bizarre?
