Atoms for Peace
"Judge Jury and Executioner"
The latest track from Amok, the forthcoming debut LP by Thom Yorke's other band, is a bubbling cyber-groove packed with antsy beats – as you might expect from a group that features two world-class percussionists (as well as Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass). But Yorke's swarming choral-style vocals take center stage, along with acoustic guitar and a delicious three-note bass line that sounds like a morph between Flea's instrument and Yorke's humming. Electronic music, in the right hands, can be a magical thing.
