Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Led by the adorably lazy-eyed Thom Yorke, Radiohead kicked off its first U.S. tour in four years last night at the American Airlines Arena.

Backed by an "earnestly excited and giddy" AAA crowd, the Oxfordshire group dropped a 23-song set on Miami that spanned the band's 20-plus-year history.

Sandwiched between "Nude" and "Lotus Flower," Radiohead debuted a new song during its main set, and one more during the encore between "Bodysnatchers" and ""Weird Fishes/Arpeggi."

Check out the previously unreleased tracks "Identikit" and "Weird Fishes/Arpeggi" after the jump.

"Identikit" is a pretty infectious number built around the type of electronic syncopation that Radiohead's perfected in recent years, borrowing elements from 2007's In Rainbows and last year's The King of Limbs.

Quite the opposite, "Cut in a Hole" is a lonely, vulnerable track peppered with piano notes and Thom Yorke's wallowing. While weird and dark, it still charms.
