Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes

Thom Yorke's surprise digital album Tomorrow's Modern Boxes was released on September 26, 2014. It was suspiciously absent from many critics' end of year wrap-ups. Tight in its construction and length, it would appear as though it was tailor made for the kind of online listeners feverish for constant content. It's not long enough to take your attention away from other release demanding your attention (under 40 mins in run time), it's not short enough to feel like a promotional warm-up pre-album release. While there is speculation on the numbers he may or may not have done, its worth considered consumption.
