Riff: Atoms for Peace -“Stuck Together Pieces”

Feb 25, 2013

You can have anything that you want/Except the thing you really want/Go back to where you came from/Go back to what you know

The afrorock influence is evident here, especially in the bassline. It’s a good sound for Yorke who seems comfortable navigating the space¬†between¬†the organic and electronic. Lyrically he takes aim at the fickle bonds that bind society, but by end he relinquishes the message to the rhythm; [LISTEN].
