Morning Music Notes – A Reflection of a Reflection Means Two Albums
Since SoundCloud decided to stop working every time I tried to link this to, I’m posting it about 18 hours later than I wanted to. Atoms for Peace made a mix for some friends of theirs for their runway show. Thom Yorke and the gang scraped together some unused bits of Atoms for Peace songs, featuring beats from band percussionist Mauro Refosco.
Bonus: Radiohead’s multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood (or Jonathan Greenwood esq as he’s called on SoundCloud) adds a mashed beat to the mix. The seemingly Incredible Hulk inspired track is named You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry Mush Mx. Check it out below and be inspired to buy some expensive and weird looking clothes.

Kanye West made a spur of the moment appearance of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon last night. He played Bound 2, the most ‘Kanye’ sounding track of new album Yeezus (in that it apes his classic sampling selection). The track also featured Charlie Wilson of the Roots (who just happen to be the house band of Jimmy Fallon). AND KANYE WORE THAT DRESS AGAIN! Check out the album closer below, and note that it’s for US audiences only, but about a minute after it told me that, it started playing for me here in Canada.
