Thom Yorke debutes some NEW SONGS in Cambridge

 Thanks to for the heads up and image.

Mr. Yorke played a few new songs the other night at a Green Party benefit in Cambridge at the Cambridge Corn Exchange.  With the recent acouncements that Thom Yorke's previously unnamed ???? band will now be called Atoms for Peace (consisting of Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, Flea and Nigel Godrich) and that Radiohead MIGHT have finished work on a full length new Radiohead LP . . . these are exciting times. 
We can only imagine if these songs will find their way onto a new Thom Yorke record, or are these stripped down versions of an already finished Radiohead LP?!  Let the rumor mill commence!

Wherever they end up, if anywhere at all, they are among the softer of Yorke/Radiohead's tunes.  Great use of pedal looping on the latter 2.  For videos of the songs, see

Enjoy the new tunes.

And, while you're at it, go buy some old tunes! Amazon has some super cheap deals on mp3 albums right now!

  1. In Rainstorms? lol... If this is true about a new LP - oh my! Here's my thumbs up to Amazon for mp3s as well. DRM free. Boo to iTunes files. Yay to Amazon!
