Atlas Sound’s Parallax leaked last week and Bradford Cox’s latest solo venture got a quick Premature Evaluation size-up. Now, the record has hit the web in full alongside a track-by-track commentary from Cox at The New York Times Magazine website. Cox’s commentary is pretty notable, as it’s filled with stuff like:
The sound of winter in the practice space when all heat is sucked into the nonexistent, and isolated chords become skeletal and not cute.
Also, he mentions that MGMT’s Andrew VanWyndgarden played piano on “Mona Lisa.” Do with that fact what you will.
