Milwaukee native WebsterX is sharing his KidX project, which is inspired by British alternative group Radiohead and their landmark album, Kid A. According to WebsterX’s SoundCloud page, the EP was partly inspired by the album’s themes — including darkness and depression — that have, in turn, found their way into the soundscapes of these three songs. Filled with refreshing sounds that are worthy of a listen or two — it’s ten minutes — KidX is both ambitious and exciting. Check out Milwaukee’s WebsterX take on the challenge of Radiohead’s Kid A on KidX after the jump.
