It still feels weird to call Atoms For Peace a super-group, considering the drop-off in stardom that happens after you mention Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea ... and then Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich and Joey Waronker, who has worked with R.E.M. and Beck but come on. Obviously, nothing Yorke does will ever be straight down the middle, and group's full-length debut "Amok" likely will continue the beeping friskiness of singles like "Default," whose title hopefully isn't a sign of talented artists working on autopilot.
