    Philip Selway to Appear on WNYC's "Soundcheck" Performing Songs from New EP and Solo Debut Album
    Kevin Westenberg

    Philip Selway, whose new digital EP, Running Blind, was released last month on Nonesuch Records, will be the guest on Soundcheck from NPR member station WNYC tomorrow afternoon. Selway will talk with host John Schaefer and perform songs from the new EP and his solo debut album, Familial, released on Nonesuch last year. Tune in on the radio at 93.9 FM in New York City at online around the world at wnyc.org. The show airs live Friday at 2 PM ET and again at 10 PM ET.

    When Selway wrote the songs that formed Familial, he kept back a handful that he felt worked best as a separate piece of work; these now comprise the new digital EP, Running Blind. The songs evolved during Selway’s live shows supporting Familial, and he subsequently returned to the studio to record them with his band. Running Blind includes those four songs plus a live session video of the title track. You can watch the video at nonesuch.com/media.

    To pick up a copy of Running Blind and Familial, head to the Nonesuch Store now. Orders of Familial on CD and vinyl include high-quality, 320 kbps MP3s at checkout.

    While in New York City, Selway will also work in a few gigs with his band, Radiohead. The group will play two shows at Roseland Ballroom next Wednesday and Thursday, September 28 and 29. Tickets go on sale at 10 AM ET this Monday, September 26, at ticketmaster.com. Also on Monday, Selway and the band will be featured on an special hour-long episode of The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. This weekend, they will be the musical guests on the season opener of Saturday Night Live, hosted by Alec Baldwin; tune in this Saturday, September 24, at 11:30 PM ET on NBC.

    David Byrne's American Utopia tour made its way to the UK for a week of sold-out shows, all met with rave reviews, starting with the NME's declaration: "The American Utopia tour may just be the best live show of all time." "An unforgettably unique, imaginative, and kaleidoscopically entrancing spectacle of music, dance, and theatre," exclaims the Telegraph. "This was something special." "One of the most mind-blowingly meticulous and awe-inspiring productions you could ever hope to see," says the Independent. "Perfection." "Daringly ambitious and full of joy," says the Evening Standard. "Mass exposure to his glorious, life-affirming American Utopia show alone would make the world a better place," says the Scotsman. "An extraordinary, ecstatic show."
