It’s become tradition for Deerhunter fans to expect a new Atlas Sound album to follow a Deerhunter album. Given the success of Deerhunter’s Halcyon Days who could begrudge Bradford Cox not wanting to strike while the muse is still hot and prep an entirely new (ie: non-blog leaked) release? Due out on 4AD on November 8 will be the third Atlas Sound album entitled Parallax, the follow-up to 2008′s Logos. No word as yet if this is Bradford alone or with special guests. The website for Parallax offers scant details, bar a scrolling landscape and genre-defining the album as ‘Science Fiction’. Well, alright then.

Well known for using his blog as a means to give away his music (even to his own chagrin, accidentally leaking an unfinished version of Atlas Sound’s Logos album months in advance), Deerhunter’s Bradford Cox seems to have trumped all previous attempts of goodwill and creative insight by releasing not one, but three separate collections of demos/works-in-progress and other miscellania. Released under his own Atlas Sound moniker, Cox has partaken in some early thanksgiving by giving fans something he’s called Bedroom Databank Vol’s 1-3.
Ah, Barcelona, your beaches are beautiful, your women are smoking jewels (literally), and this festival by the beach (really an explosion of concrete by the seaside) is clearly the diamond in the rough for the travelling roadshow of bands that litter the skies with one thing in mind – a paid holiday. With a selection of acts that suited this weary hack like a good pair of tight jeans and a band tee, Primavera was a stage to stage delight. The current crop of new band like The Drums, Surfer Blood and Dum Dum Girls rose up to meet the challenge of the ’90s alternative old guard of Pixies, Pavement and Superchunk.
Bradford Cox of Deerhunter makes us seem like we’re slavishly supportive of everything his hand touches, but we mean every word. Honest.
Deerhunter’s willowy singer-guitarist and stand-up comic in the making Bradford Cox entered the 2Ser studios to trade words with Static’s Chris Berkley about all things in the Deerhunter-verse.
I’d be surprised if the majority in attendance were familiar at all with Atlas Sound, but the crammed in masses of which Webcuts was one of the last to make the cut, were calling out requests that even Cox felt too obscure and unplayable.
Metric Webcuts often considers upping sticks and moving to Canada because of the great bands and music scene that Toronto has to offer, but frankly cold weather ain’t our thing and not only that, I once knocked myself out walking down an icy road. Suffice to say — it ain’t gonna happen. That said, we [...]
