See Thom Yorke’s Atoms for Peace Preview New Tracks at PS1 DJ Set

Thom Yorke

Thom Yorke doing that dance Thom Yorke does, and Thom Yorke premiering new material. The Radiohead frontman’s DJ set this weekend with longtime producer Nigel Godrich under their Atoms for Peace banner boasted both of those unique appeals. Shortly after releasing Atoms for Peace single “Default” and scheduling the Flea-backed group’s debut album for next year via XL, Yorke and Godrich played several previously unreleased tracks on Saturday as part of MoMA’s PS1 Warm Up concert series in Queens, New York’s Long Island City neighborhood. While the fan footage leaves a bit to be desired, Yorke’s mix of in-person vocals and computer-assisted backing tracks appeared to meet his Atoms for Peace prescription for merging “electronic and live.” Watch video below via CoS, which points out the duo also sampled tracks by Azealia Banks, Talking Heads, and SBTRKT.
