New Modeselektor (Feat. Thom Yorke) – “The White Flash”
Radiohead’s putting the finishing touches on LP7, and from the sound of things, Thom needs to get his IDM fix elsewhere. Enter Modeselektor (or MDSLKTR if you have to get all MSTRKRFT about it). The Berlin-based electronic outfit wooed Mr. Yorke and and Maxïmo Park to guest on its forthcoming record Happy Birthday, and the Thom track is a glitch or two away from his heady The Eraser days. “You have all the time in the world” is the verse/refrain/whatever-it-is-Thom-writes, paired with inevitably dystopic moans and an intellectual beat fit for his spastic stage boogie. RIYL Yorke solo. Or IYL Yorke at all, really — it’s awesome. Have a listen at Hype.
