Show Review

After many hours of live music, it is always nice when a performer helps an audience wind down for the evening…which is what made this performance from Bradford Cox' Atlas Sound so very gratifying as it was happening. Headlining Friday's edition of the FADER Sideshow, Cox whipped up a relaxing collage of terrestrial vocals and hypnotic Fender guitar, all flowing handsomely through miles of metal boxes and twisted wires. Though his output is organic at its source, Cox guides his music by higher powered, synthetic undercurrents, creating something that is both empowering and otherworldly. - David Pitz

Artist Bio

Atlas Sound is the solo project of Bradford Cox, the striking and eccentric vocalist for experimental indie rockers Deerhunter. Cox was born in 1982 in Athens, GA, a town whose burgeoning music scene greatly influenced the singer. He identified with the B-52's while growing up, especially the late Ricky Wilson, and co-founded Deerhunter with drummer/keyboardist Moses Archuleta in 2001. Deerhunter released two full-length albums and an EP before taking a break in 2007, the bandmembers citing a desire to sort out their personal lives in the interim. Cox shifted his focus to Atlas Sound, having already issued a split 12" vinyl and a pair of EPs under the same moniker. Molding his sound from a wide range of influences -- including doo wop, electronica, and Elvis Presley -- Cox then set to work on Atlas Sound's full-length debut, Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See But Cannot Feel, which is slated for a 2008 release. – Andrew Leahey
