Listen to Thom Yorke DJ Up to 5 New Thom Yorke (or Atoms for Peace) Songs
It takes a lot to get us to put away our beers and pull out our laptops on the weekend, but if there’s one man who can do it, it’s Mr. Thom Yorke. The Radiohead front man (and man whose posters act as my wallpaper) was doing a DJ set in LA as part of Beastie Boy Mike D’s curated music and arts festival at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles. How is that for an information filled sentenced?! Anyway, Thom and Radiohead producer Nigel Goderich DJ’ed a set at Transmission LA, and played 5 songs which might be songs from the upcoming Atoms for Peace album, which is Thom Yorke’s solo project with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. You can listen to the 5 tracks below, and admire the confidence it takes to play your own songs at a DJ set, especially new songs. Much like my cats, these songs don’t yet have names. Cheers to suprefan for the YouTube uploads. It’s unclear exactly how many songs were played, as they sort of blend into each other, as DJs are supposed to do to songs, but they have been uploaded in 5 parts.
