Thom Yorke’s new band

Thom Yorke is one man band. Nobody can doubt that. He did a really great job with his solo album The Eraser and now he is coming with a brand new band that will be called Atoms For Peace.

Atoms For Peace will be consisted by Thom Yorke, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Beck/R.E.M drummer Joey Waronker, percussionist/multi-instrumentalist Mauro Refosco and Red Hot Chilli Peppers bassist Flea. And yes the surprise was Flea. Is he telling us that Red Hot isn’t a band anymore? Who knows…

Atoms For Peace got’s their name by a speech and program spearheaded by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the 50s that set to promote peaceful nuclear energy and aided countries including Iran in their development of atomic power. It’s also the name of a track on Yorke’s solo bow, The Eraser.

Atoms For Peace are going to perform a series of live shows in America during April and the Flying Lotus will be the opening band. Shows include major cities such as New York, Boston, Chicago, Oakland and Santa Barbara. For Further details please follow this link.

You can also read more in Radiohead’s dead air space blog here.

Here are two of the Thom Yorke’s album The Eraser for you in case you can’t recall. The first one is called The Eraser in a XXXChange Remix, really different than the original version of The Eraser, and the second one is the Atoms For Peace song that we mentioned earlier.

Enjoy!

Roma vs Panathinaikos 25/02/2010

Απίστευτη η νίκη του Παναθηναϊκού, για να μη πω η “Νίνη” του Παναθηναϊκού, απέναντι στη Roma, που για ακόμα μια φορά, δεύτερη συνεχόμενη, δεν κατάφερε να κερδίσει τον Παναθηναϊκό, αυτή τη φορά μέσα στο Olimpico. Απο τις πιο θεαματικές προκρίσεις στην ιστορία του ευρωπαϊκού Παναθηναϊκού που πλέον περιμένει την Σταντάρ Λιέγης στις 11/03 στο ΟΑΚΑ για να βάλει τον πρώτο λήθο για τους 8 του Europa League. Στις 18/03 ο επαναλληπτικός για την πρόκριση στο Βέλγιο.

Ο Παναθηναϊκός βρέθηκε πίσω στο σκορ στην αρχή του 1ου ημιχρόνου αλλά δεν έχασε το κουράγιο του. Ο Νίνης ήταν αυτός που με ατομική ενέργεια κέρδισε το πέναλντυ στο 40′ και ο Cisse το έκανε goal. Ο Νίνης ήταν αυτός που με ατομική ενέργεια επείσης εγραψε το 1-2 στο 44′ με σουτ έξω απο την περιοχή και ο Νίνης ήταν αυτός που έκανε την ασσίστ στον Cisse  και σε τετ-α-τετ με τον τερματοφύλακα της Roma στο 45’+ έκανε το 1-3.

Το δεύτερο ημίχρονο ανήκε δικαιοματικά στη Roma. Πολλές αντεπιθέσεις, γρήγορο παιχνίδι, και απίστευτη πίεση ήταν τα χαρακτηριστικά της. Κατάφερε και μείωσε στο 67′ αλλα τίποτα παραπάνω. Τελικό σκορ, 2-3.

Αντρίκια πρόκρηση για τον Παναθηναϊκό και ένα πάρα πολύ καλό παιχνίδι και απο την Roma αλλά και απο τον ευρωπαίο Παναθηναϊκό.

Congrats Panathinaikos και πάμε στους 16 του Europa League.

Unkle, Unkle, Land

Unkle have already produced two great albums. The Never, Never, Land and the Psyence Fiction. They have collaborated with many artist, on numerous mix albums and now they are in the studio for their third that ‘s going to be called Where Did The Night Fall.

One sneak peek in their album before it reaches the stores is the song Natural Selection feating the Texan lid-flippers The Black Angels. Beautiful song, revealing the real Unkle once again.

Enjoy!

Have you heard of The Bundles?

Have you heard of The Bundles? Well, if you have, you’ll know how much time it took them to complete their first album.

They started with five songs which they manage to expand them into full band songs and after 8 years to put them in an album in Feb 2009. However, all these years weren’t lost years especially for the leader of the group Jeffry Lewis and his brother Jack and this can be seen by listening to the album. Great songs and great chemistry for these guys.

Here’s a sample of their work. We liked it and we are sharing…

Enjoy!

Joanna Newsom made the come back with a brand new triple vinyl album and she has already exclude herself from the masses.

Really good work and a very promising listening at home.

8 out of 10 for Joanna Newsom and her new album.
