Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich Do A Reddit AmA

From Reddit:


Thom, why did you steal the H from Jonny’s name?


yes but he hasn’t spotted it’s gone yet.

I love that Reddit AmAs are a thing and that they command a large enough audience that celebrities do them regularly.

In other news, that new Atoms For Peace album is pretty neat. It’s got a decidedly more straight electronica feel to it than Radiohead, yet you can totally visualize Thom just spazzing out on stage to the music during a live set.

Listen To Two New Burial Songs With Four Tet And Thome Yorke

The Thome Yorke dubstep train continues on with two new songs from a new Burial 12″ EP featuring Four Tet and Yorke.

There are two songs making the rounds from a Floating Points + Four Tet Rinse.FM show a couple of days ago.


and Ego:

If you’re like me, your tastes may gravitate more to Ego which makes sense since the track is the “A-side” on the 12″ release. It’s a solid track, if not a bit predictable. Are we poised for dubstep to become the “chillwave” of 2011?


More Thom Yorke Videos From The Echoplex Show

Thanks to my retardedly slow internet, it’s taken me a few days to get my HD videos from last Friday’s Thom Yorke show at the Echoplex up.

For your enjoyment (more videos after the break):

Thom Yorke with New Band 10-02-09 @ Echoplex Los Angeles

thom yorke solo echoplex los angeles 10-02-09

Maybe years of concert going in Los Angeles have made me a jaded cynic, but I have to admit some trepidation when I intially heard that Thom Yorke would be playing the ~700 person capacity Echoplex in the heart of LA’s hipster haven.  Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been to several Radiohead shows across the country.  I’ve met and spoken with Thom himself.  I know firsthand how great of a stage performer this awkward looking Englishman can be.  It’s just that… well, solo albums from celebrated frontmen usually end up being a disappointing affair.  I wasn’t a huge fan of The Eraser, the album came off to me a bit flat and soulless.  Plus, how in the world could this new band work out?  Nigel I can understand, but Flea??  Is he going to come out on stage in nothing but a tube sock, and start slappin’ da bass I Love You Man style?  I was worried the show would degenerate into an 80 minute masturbatory jam session with famous musicians.

Fortunately, Thom and the boys proved I was a complete douche for even entertaining those thoughts.
