Not long to go until Monkeytown, the much awaited new album from Modeselektor arrives, and one of the worst kept secrets about the release is that Radiohead front-man Thom Yorke is going to be making a guest appearance. A long time fan of the German duo, Yorke has been making overtures towards the speaker bothering bass community in recent years – he played at Flying Lotus’ Low End Theory last year, and the cast of re-mixers on Radiohead’s recent records show that Yorke has his finger firmly on the pulse of the underground.
Now you can hear the results of his two collaborative efforts on Monkeytown – ‘This’ and ‘Shipwreck’. We are not to sure if these links are officialy approved, or how long they will stay up for so go and listen quick here and here.
