atlas sound

Atlas Sound is the name of a musical solo project of Bradford James Cox, the lead singer of Atlanta four-piece Deerhunter. Cox was born in Athens, Georgia in 1982 and suffers from Marfan Syndrome.The singer plans on releasing an album in 2008, entitled "Let the Blind Lead Those Who Can See but Cannot Feel" on indie-label Kranky. Several demos have been released on his MySpace page, with Deerhunter guitarist and "best friend" Lockett Pundt appearing on guitar for the song "Cold As Ice".In explaining his reasoning for a solo project, Cox has stated, "It's just that I have ideas that I can't make work with a five piece rock band...there's kind of this palette of sounds that I use that I don't necessarily get to use with Deerhunter".Cox has noted his heroes to be Ricky Wilson from the B-52's and Laura Carter from Athens punk band the Bar-B-Q Killers. Cox is openly[citation needed] bisexual, but remains ambiguous regarding his sexuality in interviews.(from )

τεράστια γραφική μορφή ο Cox. Πάρα πολύ καλή και η πρόσφατη συνέντευξη που έδωσε στο pitchfork, ενδεικτικά:
Cox: "My cousin turned me onto punk rock when I was like nine. And then through punk rock I somehow got from the Stooges to Sonic Youth to Stereolab. I only listen to bands that have names that begin with "S". Swans..."
