Default Thom Yorke's new album is out

Came out via bit torrent, gotta grab it tomorrow.

The pros and cons of selling an ‘album’ (his inverted commas, not mine) through BitTorrent are for someone else to get into, however. The hullaballoo over these guerrilla releases can often detract from the music itself, making it appear secondary to the circumstances of its release. The lacklustre ‘King of Limbs’ might have deserved that fate but ‘Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes’, thankfully, does not.

That said, it’s hardly love at first listen. ‘A Brain In A Bottle’ is a claustrophobic opener, boxing you in with oscillations of wobbly bass and the unsettling caw of what sounds like an electronic seagull. “Why hast thou forsaken us?” asks Yorke, and you can imagine the perennially-disappointed ‘OK Computer’ crowd throwing their hands up in exasperation and replying “You tell us.” Yet across repeat plays, the album’s charms begin to unfurl: ‘Guess Again!’ is built around a looping piano line that recalls ‘Pyramid Song’ and gives the listener the feeling of tumbling in slow-motion down the Penrose steps, amid ominous warnings that “as one door shuts, another opens”. On ‘Truth Ray’, meanwhile, the cold, inhuman aloofness of the music is offset by Yorke’s quietly-horrified murmurs of “Oh my god, oh my god,” and a melody which lingers like a restless spirit.

New album “Anima” is out, and is accompanied by a mildly Kate Bush ish, 15 minute film now on Netflix, also called “Anima”, the film is, as left of centre as you’d expect from him, which brings visuals to 3 of the album tracks, and has fairly incredible choregraphy to be fair, shot in Prague and Provence.

Liking it all so far
