While Death Cab and Annie Clark talk up their New Moon contributions, Thom Yorke has remained suspiciously mum. We can only assume he is a fan of vampires and of letting his music speak for itself. His “Hearing Damage” leaked this weekend, along with the rest of the OST, and as far as recent Thom solo recordings go (see “Horses“), it’s entirely accessible, with a swoon-worthy chorus over pulsing synths: “Your speakers are blowing/ Your ears are wrecking/ Your ears are damaged/ You wish you felt better/ You can do no wrong in my eyes.” Have a listen to that and more:
Thom Yorke – “Hearing Damage”
Bon Iver & St. Vincent – “Rosyln”
Grizzly Bear (Feat Victoria Legrand) – “Slow Life”
The Twilight Saga: New Moon soundtrack is out 10/20 via Atlantic.
