Radiohead’s Thom Yorke Steps Out With Side Project Atoms For Peace

It’s been a little over a year since Radiohead released their latest record, The King of Limbs, uniting indie rockers and frat boys as only a band as widely adored as Radiohead can. Sure, the band just played a pair of shows at Coachella, but otherwise things have been quiet on the Radiohead front — or have they?

As fans might remember, the group’s frontman, Thom Yorke, played a short tour in 2010 with a group called Atoms for Peace, featuring the talents of Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich. And while that group has supposedly been working on an album, a more interesting nugget come in the form of a DJ set that Yorke and Godrich put on Friday night at a party Beastie Boy Mike D. threw in Los Angeles, according to At Ease

The duo played five new songs with Yorke on vocals, which the blog notes could be “tracks from the highly anticipated Atoms For Peace album.”

We’re not sure about that, but you can check out the cuts for yourself below.
