Thom Yorke and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich followed in the footsteps of Barack Obama and Sigur Rós by sitting in on one of those Reddit AMA Q&As the other day (to promote their ‘other’ band Atoms For Peace), and gosh, was it illuminating.
First of all, Radiohead. Yorke said the band, who will in September begin making a new LP in earnest, have already been taping prototype tracks. In Jack White’s Nashville studio, no less. Typing (badly) via Reddit, Yorke and Godrich said: “We was at Jack White’s place… we now have two unfinished tracks, one of which is ‘Identikit’. It’s nice there, red and black and white and shit. Err, we work slower than him (understatement)”.
So, given it’ll be a while before that Radiohead LP is done, why not have a consolation prize in the shape of ‘Amok’, the new one by Atoms For Peace. It’s playing away on an infinite loop (well, one that’ll last until its 25 Feb release) via this link.
