I suppose he can be a bit all over the place live at times. A few months ago, he played two amazing shows in Austin though. The first night was performing material from Clear Moon & Ocean Roar with a full band and it sounded amazing. The second night was in a basement-type venue where he basically took anyone's requests and played a bunch of classic Microphones songs. He even played my request for Solar System and I got to talk to him for quite a bit afterwards. I thought he was a really cool guy myself.

Black Thought stepping in for the missing members was amazing.

Great record but I would love to have more songs with Amber on lead vocals.

It will be sad if Christopher shys away from playing these great Girls songs he's written at future shows.

I definitely hear the gap closing on the difference in sound between the two acts. Halcyon Digest did sound more like Atlas Sound with a few of the songs even seeming to be just Bradford by myself. Parallax nearly abandons all of the electronic leanings that I found to be a major aspect of what differentiated Atlas in the past from Deerhunter. Having said that, I think this is an amazing record and already one of the best of the year.
