Bradford James Cox is coming to your venue, Durham. Are you ready?
Atlas Soundis the solo project of the Deerhunter frontman. Atlas Sound is the solo moniker of Deerhunter frontman/provocateur Bradford Cox, so named since 1994, when a sixth-grade Bradford made recordings on a karaoke cassette machine bearing the words ‘Atlas Sound’. Though it was Cox’s earliest musical incarnation, it wasn’t until 2008 that the first Atlas Sound album emerged, Let The Blind Lead Those Who See But Cannot Feel. The genesis of the record can be traced back to those sixth-grade musical experiments; a time when he discovered through reading a Beck interview that his family’s disused karaoke machine could be used as a rudimentary multi-tracking device. As Cox’s tirelessly updated blog attests, with its caverns of freely available covers, demos and mixtapes, such recording processes are central to his music, colouring the intimate feel of Atlas Sound in a manner more apparent than when writing under the guise of Deerhunter. Pitchfork review of Atlas Sound's new album, Parallax What's being said about his new album Parallax "Profoundly beautiful." - Mojo 4/5 "A constantly shifting delight" - Pitchfork (Best New Music) "Parallax… further proves Cox's […] genius" - New York Times Magazine "He has created one of the most beautiful musical moments of the year." - Sunday Times "His sustained, idiosyncratic vision is as absorbing as a trip off-world should be." - Q 4/5 "One of those efforts that captivates by stealth. Listen long enough and you're completely hooked." - The Sun 4.5/5 "Cox renders his off-piste oddities with a lack of strain that's as inviting as it is alluringly idiosyncratic." - The Independent Atlas Sound on Facebook http://deerhuntertheband.blogspot.com/
