Thom Yorke recently put together a 25-minute DJ mix for XFM, and most of the tracks on it are songs that involve him in some way or another: a couple of tracks of other people remixing Radiohead, his remix of a John Matthias track, that sort of thing. And the big news on the mix is that it features a decent-sized chunk of a new Yorke solo track called “Twist.” It’s a terse bass-music joint with nothing in the way of actual singing from Yorke. His voice is chopped into shards, and it’s not pleasantly refracted the way it was on “Everything In Its Right Place.” Instead, it’s transformed into an itchy, insistent sound effect.
