atlas sound – let the blind lead those who can see but cannot feel (kranky)
bradford cox ended his year on a high, with the release of deerhunter‘s microcastle, the much lauded album that’s found its way to most year end lists by now. but let’s not forget how he started the year with a bang as well, with his solo effort under the atlas sound moniker. while cox’s more direct work has been fittingly channeled to deerhunter, atlas sound remains his personal solace, where every feeling is indulged and every idea entertained, no matter how scanty or odd. the end product, though, fits seamlessly like one long dream, vague yet unforgettable.
