See Thom Yorke Bop for Eighteen Raucous Minutes More
With Atoms for Peace partner Nigel Godrich, the duo do "Black Swan" and "Stuck Together Pieces" at New York's Le Poisson Rouge
Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich have been doing their “two turntables and a microphone” thing of late in order to get the word out about Atoms for Peace’s new album Amok. Their band has announced a solid run of live dates as well, but the footage emerging from the duo’s March DJ/production set at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge handily proves that the stripped-down set is nothing to scoff at. Last week, we shared eight glorious video minutes of the pair performing “Default,” but we can now do that one better.
Above, you’ll find nearly 18 minutes of Yorke and Godrich grooving through Amok’s “Black Swan” (honestly, we like it better than the original) and segueing into Yorke’s Rag & Bone runway composition, “Stuck Together Pieces.” The audio quality is excellent and the visuals leave little to be desired. Plus, the boys do much more than push buttons. Get into it above.
