for those of us who have been to a thom yorke show and seen the anonymous marquee, we get how exciting this news is. he and his non-radiohead band members have named themselves, atoms for peace. atoms for peace was an eisenhower speech and program in the 50s with goals to peacefully produce nuclear energy and aid countries in the development of atomic power. atoms for peace is also a song on yorke’s solo album, eraser. now we can finally call mr. yorke, nigel godrich, joey waronker, mauro refoscoand, and flea something other than thom yorke’s band. in addition to playing coachella, they have schedule 8 shows in major u.s. cities for the month of april and flying lotus will open. weeeeerd.
major lazer annouced the release of their next ep, lazers never die, yesterday when the world wide web got hold of the track featuring m.i.a. and busy signal. and now pitchfork has confirmed the track list for the ep and non-other than mr. thom yorke will be remixing the track “jump up”. diplo + thom yorke = dancers and lovers of electronica rejoicing.
1 sound of siren [ft. m.i.a. and busy signal]
2 good enough [ft. collie buddz and lindi ortega]
3 can’t stop now (kicks like a mule remix) [ft. ms. banks]
4 bruk out (buraka som sistema mix)
5 jump up (thom yorke remix)
either thom yorke has a green thumb or an environmentalist friend running for british parliament. well, it’s both. he’ll be playing a solo benefit show in cambridge to help said friend, tony juniper, campaign. the two were both seen at the copenhagen climate change conference recently. how many more reasons do we need to love thom yorke? tickets go on sale tomorrow for the show on feb 25th.
cosmogramma is los angeles’ flying lotus’ fourthcoming album. it will be out may 4th and guess who’s making an appearance, non other than radiohead’s thom yorke. he’ll sing on a track called “… and the world laughs with you”. sweeeeet.
