Riff: Atoms For Peace – “Judge, Jury and Executioner”

Jan 21, 2013

Thin persecutors/Your twisted whispers/A horned reptile that is crawled upon the earth

from Judge, Jury and Executioner lyrics by Atoms For Peace

Glitchy beats, twangy acoustics and ghostly vocals, a typically cryptic musing on an emotional state and named after the provisional title for Hail To The Thief’s “Myxomatosis,” this Amok taster hints Thom Yorke’s supergroup might not be the big departure the inclusion of Flea would suggest.
