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.
