Landing in conjunction with a Paul Thomas Anderson short film of the same name that features Yorke as its protagonist and includes 3 of the tracks here, ‘ANIMA’ is carefully plotted and crafted, just as we’d expect from Yorke. Filled with brooding, skittering electronic beats, it’s an album that doesn’t test convention but continues the steady growth of Yorke as an electronic musician. While there are more daring beat-makers out there, few incorporate vocals quite like Yorke. Throughout ‘ANIMA’ his vocals patch in and out, at times barely decipherable as they’re buried deep in the mix. Even when they’re categorically not there they somehow linger, echo and resonate even as tracks break into extended instrumental sections. This uncanny balance of lingering human presence is something Yorke has been perfecting since Radiohead’s ‘OK Computer’, and ‘ANIMA’ is a strong next step.
