The debut LP from Thom Yorke’s new band Atoms For Peace — titled AMOK — is mere weeks away now. We’ve previously heard the blippy single ‘Default‘ and its groovy b-side ‘What the Eyeballs Did‘, and this week we get another taste of the album in the form of ‘Judge, Jury and Executioner’. This track sounds more like Radiohead than the previous releases, but this is certainly not a bad thing; in fact, it’s my favourite Yorke-related track since ‘Lotus Flower’. Flea’s bass playing is phenomenal without being overwhelming here, and my expectations are continuing to rise for this promising project.
AMOK is due January 28. Listen to ‘Judge, Jury and Executioner’ below (via Stereogum).
