I’ve been a Radiohead fan since Creep. So, naturally, I’ve been interested to hear all of Thom Yorkes projects outside of Radiohead. But, I must admit that even though his debut solo album (Eraser) had its moments, I wasn’t completely a fan of his solo work until he released the Atoms for Peace project. For me, Atoms for Peace was the missing key that decoded his initial solo work. After Atoms for Peace, I was able to recognize the genius in his initial solo project.
With his latest release Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, Thom continues to confirm my assumption about him even more — this dude is living in the future. Again for this album, he chose to work with his longtime collaborator Nigel Goodrich. The album follows a formula similar to his previous albums by using an electronic atmospheric sound bed with Thom’s haunting vocals layered on top.
The album was released strictly online via BitTorrent without any major label backing.
