    Atoms for Peace – “What the Eyeballs Did”

    atoms for peace hot Top mp3s of the Week (11/2)

    There’s something eerily Cramp-ish about the B-side to the upcoming Atoms for Peace 12” (out November 19th via XL). Maybe it’s the track title, or Flea’s wobbly-yet-persistent bassline, or the fact that I’ve still got Halloween on my mind, but I swore Lux Interior was about to start howling about killer eyeballs. Then Thom Yorke’s wailing falsetto reminded me that poor Lux is no more (R.I.P.) and that this isn’t The Cramps. But that’s not to say “What the Eyeballs Did” is disappointing—because it’s not. Yorke is building off the skittish beats of The Eraser and letting his bandmates carve the soundscapes. Symphonic chords rise and fall to pulse off the aforementioned bassline—ostensibly the creative work of Nigel Godrich and Flea respectively. Yorke’s vocals are mostly indistinguishable, peeking out of the mix for a line or two before diving right back into the murk. -Jon Hadusek
