New Column: Climbing Up the Walls

This week in Tuesday Morning 3 A.M., I talk about Thom Yorke. And while it's great that Yorke is in a place where he can do whatever he wants, it's a shame that whatever he wants always turns out to be the same thing - twitchy, moody electro. Even when backed by Flea, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco, as he is on the debut from his new band, Atoms for Peace (above), he creates the same stuff, and it sounds the same way.

In contrast, there is Everything Everything, a new-ish British band learning the right lessons from Radiohead's golden age, and building on them. It's no surprise that I think their second album, Arc, leaves Atoms for Peace in the dust. To read more about why, click over to the main site, and then come back here to tell me what you think.
