FEATURED: Atlas Sound
The last time we blogged about Atlas Sound, a.k.a. Bradford Cox from Deerhunter, he was writing Christmas songs with a certain uneasy malaise to them. Now, perhaps in hibernation, he’s taken up covering a few tunes for his blog. One of them is “Oh It’s Such a Shame” by Jay Reatard, whose Blood Visions was one of Bradford’s favorite records of last year, and (kind of funnily) “Unchained Melody” by the Righteous Brothers. Both take the original songs and filter them through Bradford’s signature fuzzy echoes and distorted guitars. It’s a tough call but “Unchained Meoldy” is our favorite: it’s always nice to hear a song that everyone knows stamped with the vision of another artist with such certainty.
