Amoeba has entered into a partnership with L.A.’s Moheak Radio to provide the Amoeba Song of the Week every week for a recorded segment to air on Moheak’s online radio station.
This week it’s Atoms For Peace’s “Ingenue,” from the band’s debut album, AMOK. Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, drummer Joey Waronker and bassist Mauro Refosco create a dark, throbbing jam built on looping minor-key synthesizers, a programmed polyrhytmic beat and eerie, scratching sounds in the background. Yorke’s inimitable voice makes the proceedings feel more human, singing cryptically romantic lyrics over the band’s robotic head trip.
A bit about Amoeba’s Song of the Week: Every week we’ll provide a song hand-selected by our own staff to Moheak Radio for a recorded segment that will run four times a day (at around 8 a.m., 1 p.m., 5:45 p.m. and once overnight). Besides hearing what our expert staff is into, you’ll get the chance to win prizes from Amoeba Music. The giveaways will happen once a week with announcements at least once every four hours leading up to the giveaway, which will take place on Moheak’s Facebook page. Check it out, support local/online radio and win some prizes along the way.
