Atlas Sound - Parallax

Last month, we posted “Terra Incognita,” the first single from the new Atlas Sound album Parallax. Now Bradford Cox has another new one for us: “Te Amo,” a pretty track that rides a strange, off-kilter beat. Grab it below.

Parallax is out 11/8 on 4AD.

  1. It reminds me of Afternoon Drive from his Bedroom Databank Vol 1, but this is way better.

  2. Anyone else getting Bjork vibe, at least in the vocal delivery?

      I thought it felt very reminiscent of Vespertine because of the flittery percussion, not so much the vocals, though.

  3. I don’t know enough Bjork to compare, really, but Bradford is really on top of it as of late. By as of late, I mean the past three or so years. Last Deerhunter album was perfect. Keep it up!

  4. I’m looking for a reference to make about the picture and words fail me.

    • The reference you are looking for is Jeff Buckley’s Grace LP cover. (This also goes for the opening arpeggio of the song, and Buckley’s title track.) Took me a minute, but there it is.

      • i was almost mad at this. immediately after seeing this post, i thought of Jeff Buckley. This guy pulls it off and it seems effortless. I’m impressed.

  5. He’s been sussing this one out for awhile in different settings. He plays a great solo version with loop pedals and acoustic guitar live, also as seen in Pitchfork’s Surveillance video series. Pretty much a perfect song.
