Atlas Sound - Let The Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel

This album is the first solo effort from the Deerhunter front man Bradford Cox, and its beautiful. If you have herd Deerhunter Cryptograms and the Florescent Grey EP you may already have an idea what this will sound like. It is however not as hardcore and abrasive as those two records. The Atlas Sound album has many of the same elements but over all a more shoegazing swooshy sound, kind of like a fuzzed out My Bloody Valentine but with added digital elements. There are many beautiful and mesmerising sound-scapes hear that envelop you in a huge sonic love fuzz. These moments merge seamlessly into pure fuzzed out lovesick songs and beautiful melodies. Over all it’s a joy and a real grower, highly recommended. For an excellent archive of demos and all things Atlas Sound and Deerhunter related head to:
