‘Retarded Fren’, the previously-announced collaboration between Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood and underground rap god DOOM, is now streaming.

After the avalanche of Radiohead releases that 2011 almost found itself buried by, it’s refreshing to hear a track by the group’s members that’s a bit different – there’s no vocals from Yorke here; instead him and Greenwood shape a rickety background for DOOM that sounds partially inspired by their pal Four Tet. The muffled bassline doesn’t exactly hit, but DOOM’s on form as ever.

Lex Records will be releasing ‘Retarded Fren’ on their upcoming 10th anniversary compilation.
