Radiohead may have inspired more disparate musicians than any ”rock” group since the Beatles — they’ve been covered by jazzman Brad Mehldau, classical renegade Christopher O’Riley, and jam-blues ace Warren Haynes. Exit Music: Songs With Radio Heads set finds R&B, jazz, and electronic acts exploring Thom Yorke’s strange soul music and further exploding his band’s heady rhythms. It’s a mixed bag, but nothing is less than interesting, from Osunlade’s ecstatic electro-samba to Bilal’s sultry soul-jazz take on ”High and Dry.” Proves well-built songs can do many things.
