Atoms For Peace : Judge, Jury And Executioner


Thom Yorke’s slow-brewing side project came together as a backing band for a 2009 tour of The Eraser. With Flea on bass and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich on guitar, Atoms For Peace have released the odd track on the internet while promising and promising a debut album. At last, the iceman cometh, with an album due out on February 25 and this very Radiohead-sounding single to promote it. Thom’s voice drifts ghostly through a lean landscape of glitch, then another layer of vocals kick in, his slithering, soulful falsetto with its usual bite and occasional melancholy. That voice is god. It has no equal.
