Last night Thom Yorke and producer Nigel Godrich hopped on stage at MOCA to DJ at the Mike D-curated festival Transmission L.A.. The duo played previously-unreleased songs from their supergroup Atoms For Peace during their set.

The supergroup is comprised of the duo, the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco, which formed in 2009 and has been on tour. The new songs played during the set could be material from the group's highly-anticipated debut LP, which is rumored to be released sometime this year, according to NME. Maybe tonight Radiohead's Artist Stanley Donwood will reveal some more details about the album (or show off some contenders for the cover) tonight at the opening of his exhibit "Lost Angeles."

You can listen to some of his set in the videos below (h/t Pitchfork)
