Dance beats from Atoms in ‘AMOK’

As supergroups go, Atoms for Peace is a doozy: Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, longtime Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, drummer Joey Waronker (who has worked with Beck and R.E.M.), and Brazilian percussionist Mauro Refosco.

The story goes that they came together as a band to take Yorke’s solo album, “The Eraser,” on the road a few years ago. From freeform recording sessions in which they got wasted and listened to Fela Kuti emerged Atoms for Peace’s assured new debut record, “AMOK.”
