If you’ve been following along, Everything Ecstatic touted Amok by Atoms for Peace as the #1 album to look forward to in 2013. Welp ladies and gentlemen, the time has come. Here’s a hot off the press link to a stream of Amok:
Upon first listen, Thom Yorke and company are on to something in what Yorke describes as “a continuation of The Eraser” (Yorke’s solo project.) Note the intricate drum loops on ‘Dropped’ and the marvelous single ‘Default’ that was released earlier this year.
Also today, Yorke and Nigel Godrich participated in a Reddit ‘Ask Me Anything (AMA)’ and talked further about the album which is officially released next Monday, February 25th. Check it out for more details and answers to Redittor’s questions.
