notes::Bradford Cox’s Atlas Sound release album on February 19th

On his debut album, Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, Bradford Cox a.k.a. Atlas Sound, of Grant Park – Atlanta, Georgia, and Deerhunter fame, has essentially made a bedroom album mixing and pasting together garage rock and ambient electronic influences previously explored with Deerhunter in a new context, with newly aquired recording techniques, mainly laptop-based, learned with guidance from kranky artist Nudge’s Brian Foote. Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel is a true solo album -sometimes down, sometimes charming and uplifting, but always honest. Bradford Cox is a true sonic alchemist, with the uncanny ability to take seemingly unrelated pieces, beats, sounds, and everything under the sun, and meld them into new and more enticing entities. Atlas Sound show us a world we thought was there, only we’d never seen it until now.
