LISTEN: Thom Yorke ‘Honey Pot’
ATOMS FOR PEACE bandmates THOM YORKE and NIGEL GODRICH performed an hour long DJ set on LA radio station KCRW. At the close of their set, they premiered a track of their own, ‘Honey Pot’.
After playing a variety of tracks that KCRW personality Jason Bentley deemed a “musical rollercoaster ride”, this final track actually turned out to be the product of a remixed ‘All I Need’ creation – the original track that is found on Radiohead‘s 2007 record In Rainbows.
So very different to the original ‘All I Need’, ‘Honey Pot’ plays with both the strong vocals of Thom Yorke, as well as his delicate vocal samples that loop throughout the track. Reverberation, distortion present themselves on occasion, whilst repetitive beats power all the way through, sometimes brushed by the fragility of a glistening glockenspiel.
Never actually knowing what to do with this distant version of the gloomy ‘All I Need’, Thom Yorke‘s ‘Honey Pot’ has only been heard via the radio station. Oh, and the Internet.
