Thom Yorke joined BBC presenter and international man of music Giles Peterson this weekend on Peterson’s Worldwide radio show. Yorke and Peterson played two hours of music, pulling heavily from Yorke’s interested in dubstep and other abstract beat music. New electronic star Floating Points got two tracks in the mix, along with rapers MF DOOM and Jay Electronica, jazz greats Sun-Ra and Charles Mingus.
tracklist, video and more after the jump.
Yorke also revealed some of his upcoming plans, telling Peterson:
“Radiohead is still doing stuff. In fact, we’re starting another session for a month in two days. And the Eraser band that I got together, we’re going to do something, hopefully in April, but I think that’s just more gigs. And then maybe that’ll lead somewhere, as well. There’s lots of stuff going on, but not enough coming out yet…My biggest trouble at the moment is trying to keep up, but I prefer it that way.”
Yorke will play Coachella with his “Eraser band,” billed as ?????? on the festival poster.
