Thom Yorke
The Eraser
Fans of Radiohead’s more recent work will feel right at home with frontman Thom Yorke’s debut solo disc. Though The Eraser is surprisingly accessible, it’s still a long way from a commercial recording. Technology continues to provide Yorke’s haunting vocals with an intricate tapestry of bleeps and boops, seamlessly interwoven with organic instrumentation that provides a clearing for the vocal track to bubble to the surface. Cuts such as “Black Swan” and “Atoms for Peace” show why Radiohead has been a critical darling while eschewing the commercial market. You’ll need to work your way into the heart of Yorke’s disc, but once there, be prepared to stay a while.
