Atlas Sound’s ‘Parallax’
Far from the intrepid sonic wandering on Deerhunter’s last album ”Halcyon Digest,” ”Parallax” - the new album from Atlas Sound, the solo project of frontman Bradford Cox - feels like a few days locked in a bedroom with the flu. There’s an old quilt thrown over the drums and guitars, and Cox’s bitter, mumbling vocals bend and stretch through canyons of warm echoes. It sounds like a recipe for a dozen buzz bands this year, but Atlas Sound transcends the fads.
