News: Thom Yorke
The promise of new solo material from Thom Yorke and his backing band Atoms For Peace has been kicking around since last year. During Yorke’s time away from Radiohead, the singer worked on a full-fledged LP with the group that accompanied his solo tour, including bassist Flea, producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker, and percussionist Mauro Refosco. While there’s still no news on when the album’s coming out, a few of its songs were debuted last night in Los Angeles.
As Consequence of Sound reports, Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich performed a DJ set at Transmission LA: AV Club, a music and visual arts festival taking place at LA’s Museum of Contemporary Art. Among the songs played, some new songs featuring Yorke on vocals could definitely be heard, though it’s hard to discern how much of it is in a remixed format, and whether or not there are any samples of other artists within. Regardless of that, the new Atoms For Peace material sounds intriguing, and is divided into the five videos below:

While there’s no solid news on the release of an Atoms For Peace record, Radiohead continue to tour the US in support of The King of Limbs.
