Thom Yorke Teams With Modeselektor
The German electronic duo tease two new tracks featuring the Radiohead frontman.
This fall German electronic duo Modeselektor will return with their third album, Monkeytown, and members Gernot Bronsert and Sebastian Szary have scored a top collaborator for two tracks: Radiohead’s Thom Yorke. Full music has not yet been released, but Modeselektor have offered up 45-second preview streams of the collaboration. Hear them here.
Yorke has worked with Bronsert and Szary in the past: He contributed vocals to haunting glitch-pop track “White Flash” in 2007. And judging by these previews, the trio mine similar, dizzying electronic terrain. “Shipwreck” lays the Radiohead frontman’s unmistakable croon over a skittering, drum-and-bass-style groove, while the haunting “This” comes on like the score to the scariest German art-house movie ever.
Monkeytown, which also features collaborations with Anti Pop Consortium and Busdriver, is due out October 4 on the group’s Monkeytown Records.
