Progress Report: Here We Go Magic

Name: Here We Go Magic
Progress Report: Luke Temple opens up about the band’s serendipitous new Nigel Godrich-produced album

Sometimes life really is a lot like a romantic comedy. I’m thinking specifically of that Gwyneth Paltrow movie Sliding Doors (I apologize) or any number of Lifetime cable movies that explore that age-old… More »

Thom Yorke’s Secret Fuselage DJ Set Playlist

Glastonbury drew out all sorts of stars this year, including a day-of surprise set from Radiohead. But on the ultra-exclusive Radiohead tip, Thom and Nigel DJ’d “in a crashed aeroplane fuselage” with “friends” while Glasto still raged over yonder. (For the exact location of the wreckage that was Nigel and Thom’s DJ booth, Yorke helpfully… More »

Nigel Godrich – “Rumble” (Music From Scott Pilgrim)(Stereogum Premiere)

As mentioned, Edgar Wright’s Michael Cera-starring film adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Scott Pilgrim is out in August with Nigel Godrich serving as executive producer of the indie-friendly soundtrack (to which Beck contributed original songs as Scott Pilgrim’s Sex-Bob-Omb) and the composer of an original score that includes collaborations — Cornelius and Beck’s “Katayanagi Twi… More »

Atoms For Peace/Flying Lotus @ Roseland, NYC 4/5/10

Atoms For Peace took the stage at Roseland moments after my iPad (j/k) lit up with a NYTimes alert about the Pentagon’s new limits on when the U.S. can use nuclear weapons.
“For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance… More »

Thom Yorke Names His ???? Band Atoms For Peace, Announces Tour Dates

Turns out the Thom Yorke???? moniker was too self-aggrandizing even for Thom Yorke, bless him. Each of those question marks — Mauro Refosco, Joey Waronker, Flea, and Nigel Godrich — are now accounted for in the name Atoms For Peace, the official moniker for the newly christened Radiohead side-project Thom unveiled in Los Angeles, i… More »

Thom Yorke @ Orpheum, Los Angeles 10/5/09

And now Los Angeles can go back to paying attention to the real life. The weekend that saw Thom Yorke bare-chested and well-lit wrapped up last night at the Orpheum. The setlist was the same as the previous night’s show in the same room; photographer Andrew Youssef was the envy of everybody by making it… More »

Thom Yorke @ Orpheum, Los Angeles 10/4/09

Unlike Friday’s show at the Echoplex, Thom Yorke and his new crew’s Orpheum gig last night was not a “rehearsal.” What that seems to mean, in practical terms, was one big tradeoff (less bare Yorke chest/belly, more extensive stage lighting setup) and one setlist deviation in Sunday night’s addition of “Super Collider.” Photographer Andrew YoussefMore »

Thom Yorke @ Echoplex, Los Angeles 10/2/09

This was not the low-key warm-up gig (“total chaos … kind of a rehearsal”) Thom promised. Attendees of last night’s pre-Orpheum preview got a full (and by most (Twitter) accounts “awesome”) 90-minute set beginning with The Eraser played by Thom’s new group (Nigel Godrich, Flea, Joey Waronker, Mauro Refosco). This was followed by a solo… More »

Yesterday reader Dustin wrote in:Is this news? Last night at Beck?s show at the Echoplex in LA, Nigel Godrich played keyboards/laptop/whatchamacalits for the whole 90 minute set. Beck introduced him saying it was his first US stage performance, then Godrich shot back ?and my last.? The show was basically a laid-back, kinda sloppy, but really… More »

New Travis – “Big Chair”

The man who made Travis into something of a ’90s Brit phenomenon, producer extraordinaire Nigel Godrich, is back at the helm for the band’s forthcoming, fifth full-length. You’re allowed to have stopped paying attention after The Invisible Band (we did), but with Godrich and Brian Eno at the helm, that’s crumbelievable. Here’s the first single… More »
