About Atlas Sound
Atlas Sound is the solo project of Deerhunter's Bradford Cox. Given that Deerhunter's take on indie rock is already plenty psychedelic, you might expect Atlas Sound to be either skeletal home recordings or something really freaky. Actually, it's sort of both, and neither. Based on stream-of-consciousness composition and lo-fi studio experimentation, Atlas Sound offers a strange -- if only because it works so well -- fusion of Cox's many musical loves: '60s pop, ambient loops, garage rock and even minimal techno. Atlas Sound's first album, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel appeared in 2008 on Kranky, home also to Deerhunter. In 2009, 4AD released Logos, a more song-oriented effort featuring contributions from Animal Collective's Noah Lennox and Stereolab's Laetitia Sadier.
