Atlas Sound (aka Bradford Cox) played his annual winter shows in NYC this past weekend at The Bell House on Saturday (12/17) and Bowery Ballroom on Sunday (12/18) where he he played most of the recently released Parallax, a few older cuts and a Christmas song called “Artificial Snow.”

NYCTaper was there and you can download the complete show at his site. He wrote:

What elevated this Bowery show above the rest was not just the final polish on a finished and released album, but the near flawless level of proficiency with which Bradford performed. The Parallax numbers (nine of the twelve songs were played) were stretched out and allowed to breath, while Bradford developed looping tracks that were faithful to the album’s theme.

Bradford recently gave us his list of his ten favorite albums of 2011 and 20 older songs that he’s been into over the past year. Check that list out, along with more pics, videos, and the setlist from the Bowery Ballroom show, below…
