Bradford Cox

Bradord Cox, aka Atlas Sound, has announced some Feb/Mar tour dates (smack dab in the middle of Deerhunter's 'hiatus'). He plays Mercury Lounge on February 23rd, and the next day at Music Hall of Williamsburg. More info, and all dates, below.....

Bradford Cox

Cox will be touring next February and March, with Kranky label-mates Valet and White Rainbow, in support of the Atlas Sound debut, Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel. On this album, Cox/Sound moves out of dank nightclubs filled with eternal existential drone punk, and relaxes at home in his Grant Park, Atlanta bedroom. And this is, essentially, a bedroom album, a collage, mixing the garage rock and ambient electronic influences previously explored with Deerhunter in a new context, with newly acquired recording techniques, mainly laptop-based, learned with guidance from Kranky artist Nudge's Brian Foote. The result is 14 songs of melancholy and mania.

since when does psychic tv get a credit for a young penned song?

It's an Atlas Sound cover (of Psychic TV's cover) of "Only Love Can Break Your Heart"

you can use an arrangement, but you can't cover a cover. and there are proper ways to give credit, if this is the case...which it's not, because it's not a new arrangement - it's a COVER.

i was hoping after deerhunter announced they were taking a break, i would never have to hear about brandon cox for quite some time.

you should totally add a opt out feature, for those of us who are sick of reading about deerhunter and dan deacon

I wish I was as ill as that guy so I could fit into my little sister's jeans.

The only question remains is whether I'm going to see him in Toronto or Brooklyn.

whoever has a good time at Mercury Lounge?

OK...Atlas Sound Mercury Lounge show reports please. Would Sunday's MHOW show be worth missing The Oscars for?
