Thom Yorke - ANIMA

Record of the Week is ANIMAThom Yorke's solo return and a suitably ambitious new project incorporating sections made to soundtrack a film with Paul Thomas Anderson. ANIMA is tense and dense, it floats through sections of beats and tones and builds a palpable sense of anxiety. Full of his instantly recognisable musical signatures, with enough surprises to really keep up coming back. Produced with Nigel Godrich, It really is a work with no wasted gestures, quite stunning in fact.

+ Available NOW on a limited Indie Edition: Orange 140 gram double vinyl in a wide-spine single sleeve with an additional 10th track (Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming).

+ Available 2nd August on Deluxe Edition: A beautiful hardback book containing both the lyrics and many strange drawings done in pencil by Stanley Donwood & Dr Tchock. Orange 180 gram double vinyl with an additional 10th track (Ladies & Gentlemen, Thank You for Coming). Printed onto Italian Fedrigoni Special Brown material paper and section sewn, the book is made up with an exposed orange cloth spine and orange gilt edging and finished with Bodonian Binding.
