Amanda Palmer Covers “No Surprises” by Radiohead
Sometimes known as Amanda F*cking Palmer, lead singer of the Dresden Dolls and more recently, half of the Evelyn Evelyn duo, launched an animated video covering one of Radiohead’s most successful songs, “No Surprises”.
This comes exactly one year after her release of the cover album EP called “Amanda Palmer Performs the Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele”.
The video is made with the help of an animation technique known as rotoscoping. Although invented nearly 100 years ago, the procedure gained mainstream popularity mostly in recent years due to Richard Linklater full-lenght feature films, “Waking Life” and “A Scanner Darkly”.
And for the Radiohead uneducated ones, here’s the original clip, needed to fully understand Amanda Palmer’s intentions:
