Thom Yorke
[untitled new song]

Do you like delay pedals? Do you like Thom Yorke? Well, you’re in luck, because the above video features Yorke’s guitar and vocals processed through some delay delay delay delay… It debuted last night at New York’s Roseland Ballroom with Yorke’s new band, Atoms for Peace. The song’s as-yet untitled, according to At Ease.

Avi Buffalo

“What’s In It For?”

Avi Buffalo’s self-titled album is due April 27. Great, now I’m in the mood for B Dubs, and I hate that place.

Thee Oh Sees

“I Was Denied”

Thee Oh Sees’ new album is released May 11 via In The The Red. It’s called Warm Slime. Sure hope that album title wasn’t made up in the bedroom.

Phil Selway

“Running Blind”

Thanks to some intrepid Italian fans, we have some new music from Radiohead’s Phil Selway, with accompaniment by Lisa Germano and Sebastian Steinberg. The song’s called “Running Blind,” because, in a way, aren’t we all running blind? Check out many more clips at YouTube.

Chocolate Grinder Mix 30

“Jesus Built My Bicycle”

A cursory glance at the tracklisting for this edition of the Chocolate Grinder mix series should reveal to you that this has nothing to do with either Ministry or Hot Rods. Rather, this is a mix that remembers Jesus at his most hippy, drinking and laughing with his loin-clothed, sandal-clad brethren into the wee hours of the morning, cheers-ing to mercy and love. Here’s to warm hearts, open minds, and the effort to see that everyone has a good time for as long as possible. We’re all stuck here together, with only one planet and one life to call our own. Let’s make the best of it and give everyone on earth the opportunity to make the best of it themselves. Support fair trade, equal rights, and free hugs!
