At the start of the week WNYC aired an interview between Hollywood actor and radio presenter Alec Baldwin and Atoms For Peace and Radiohead frontman, Thom Yorke.
In their hour-long conversation, Thom talks about his relationship with his bands, politics, stalking Ed Norton and how Atoms For Peace began as: “An excuse to go on a jolly to L.A. and hang out.”
Thom Yorke recently went into the studio with fellow Atoms For Peace band member Nigel Godrich, to create a mix for Dazed online.
Comprised almost entirely of unreleased solo, Atoms for Peace and Radiohead material, you can stream the results on Dazed Digital and below.
– Cycles MK 3 – Thom Yorke
– You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry (unfinished mix) – Atoms For Peace
– Mali: Kono, the Sacred Bird – Mali Musicians

So in the midst of yet more weird weather and the beginning of another year it feels right to put out a song called ….. Judge Jury and Executioner from Amok. It’s up on youtube here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r4tW3mhp9io – I hope you like it.
The flip side of the release is a tune called S.A.D.”
