Thom Yorke, the singer of the British rock band Radiohead, has been thrashing against a bleak and bloodless future for more than two decades. He has a reputation for seriousness, and he has committed a good portion of his musical career to airing dystopian fears: that we are all cogs in a horrifying late-capitalist techno machine, that whenever we choose to measure the fullness of a life by how productive it was, we’re really only judging how subservient a person has been to corporations. Sad emoji.
