Bradford with Deerhunter at Fun Fun Fun Fest (more by Tim Griffin)
"Left with huge amounts of material which [would] never leave his bedroom, Bradford Cox decided to simply release the tracks on his blog. Containing early versions of well known tracks, total rarities and covers the download series was a treasure trove for fans.Atlas Sound plays the NYC area twice SOON: 12/10 at Maxwell's and 12/11 at The Bell House. Bradford can also be found at at The Echo in LA on 12/3, and that's it for now - three shows total, though Deerhunter has some dates coming up in Japan and Australia.
However... Sony weren't pleased. Sending the songwriter a stern 'cease and desist' order the label demanded that Bradford Cox take down almost every track from the download series.
Infuriated, Bradford Cox complied with the order then simply re-loaded them.... "Apparently Sony Music Owns my bedroom," he complained. "I am re-uploading the files now."
A bizarre case, which just took a rather pleasing twist. Bradford Cox recently received an apology from the label, which has admitted that it was in the wrong... "The Bradford Cox tracks were mistakenly removed. We advised Mediafire that the titles were mistakenly taken down. We have communicated all of this to Bradford Cox and his manager." -[ClashMusic]
