Following up the big news yesterday that Thom Yorke changed the name of his side-project from ???? to Atoms For Peace (in other news, reports suggest he allegedly sneezed yesterday! Apparently it was transcendent.), we have something more tangible to bring to you today by way of some new material the primary Atomhead played at that “low key solo thing” in benefit for the Green Party last night. It was located at the Cambridge Corn Exchange, which is a great name for a music venue/corn hall. Speaking of great names: “The Daily Mail” (piano jam), “Mouse Dog Bird” (pretty acoustic tune with a loop supplying backing vocals), and “Give Up The Ghost” (ethereal acoustic tune with another loop) are the new jams he played last night, and they’re here for you to memorize in time for Coachella.
