Thom Yorke – Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes
Grande Halle de la Villette,
Over the last ten years, Thom Yorke has started to emancipate from the Radiohead monster entity, with a solo career that has taken some interesting turns. After releasing a first album, The Eraser, under his own name, he translated his electronic leanings to the stage with Atoms for Peace. With Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes, his return to machine manipulations is proof that James Blake and SBTRKT owe a lot to Thom Yorke, who was already tinkering with electronics on Radiohead’s Kid A. Can the Thom Yorke equation be solved on stage? Maybe, but you will have to be there to help.
