Riff: Atoms for Peace – “Judge Jury Executioner”

Feb 25, 2013

I went for my usual walk/I went around the block/I just can’t talk or reason with my executioner

from judge jury executioner lyrics by atoms for peace

Yorke’s ability to combine a thin falsetto with an aggressive brand of lyricism, creates a credible and dynamic call to arms. The layers of percussion pin down his voice, but the ghostly moans in the backdrop help elevate it back to a heady space; [LISTEN].
