We don't think Thom Yorke likes doing pre-press to announce his albums. Sure, he likes the BitTorrent route he went with his new LP, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes," and he likes the idea of getting rid of middle men and giving artists the chance to make their own money from their art and craft, but I'm convinced he wants to avoid talking to music journalists every few years to talk shop. So we get an unexpected album, and we get a glitchy video of Thom with boxing gloves for the opening track "A Brain In A Bottle," and all is good.

Following a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and prior to one at Treasure Island Music Festival here in San Francisco, Thom Yorke's Atoms For Peace released a new video for the opening track of their album Amok, "Before Your Very Eyes." Watch Yorke crumble in a flowing stop motion river of, well, you sort of have to watch it for yourself...

Okay, we all in agreement that puppets and puppeteering is a little creepy? Of course, I'm going by the Thom Yorke / Modeselektor version of puppeteering, and this brilliantly bizarre video from FutureDeluxe and Andrew Jones for the track "This" that was a standout for us in 2012. Not sure if it is the puppet or puppeteer that takes over and goes beyond the call of reality in this one, but aroudn the 3 minute mark, the world takes a turn.
Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 23, 2011
The main reason that we bring this video onto our blog stems from when Juxtapoz was in LA on March 9th, we ran into said musician and friends and they all mentioned that said musician was going to be DJing at Low End Theory where Flying Lotus was also to be attending. And we thinking this was a regular occurence, decided not to attend. We should have. Watch the video after the jump . . .
