Watch Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich get groovy in this Atoms for Peace live clip

If you weren’t able to make it to last week’s intimate Atoms for Peace show at New York’s Le Poisson Rouge — and odds are, you weren’t (even if you were awake at 1am, when the set started) — then we’ve got your back.

The clip below shows the Thom Yorke-headed group going at it live for 17+ minutes as they perform “Black Swan”  — a solo Yorke jam — and “Stuck Together Pieces,” off AfP’s debut album AmokAdditionally, the show also included some appropriately headtrippy live visuals courtesy of Tarik Barri.
