New Deerhunter Album Reportedly Coming Very Soon, Sounds Like INXS

Well, here’s some news to celebrate: there might be a new Deerhunter album soon! Last night, frontman Bradford Cox played an all-electronic set of seemingly new material at NXNE under his solo moniker Atlas Sound, described by one anonymous Redditor as “like a crazier Panda Bear.” That same anonymous Redditor talked to Cox after the… More »

This week Panda Bear (aka Noah Lennox, also of Animal Collective) will release the highly anticipated Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper, his fifth proper solo album.

Photos: Beach Goth 3 Fest Feat. Atlas Sound, Foxygen, DIIV, Alice Glass, & More

Orange County’s eclectic Beach Goth festival, organized by surf-rock weirdos the Growlers, returned for its third year on Saturday. The fest included a diverse lineup, some wandering Oompa Loompas, and — for some reason — an incredibly awkward Pauly Shore on hosting duty, who somehow managed to piss off Alice Glass enough that she reportedly… More »

Watch Divine Fits And Bradford Cox Cover The Ramones

When people talk about Divine Fits, they generally don’t complain that the band lacks for A-list indie-frontman star power — for most bands, Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner would be able to hold it down in that regard. But I don’t care if you’re CSNY, the Traveling Wilburys, or Twilight — when you’re in Atlanta… More »

Report & Photos From FYF Fest 2012

Ever since I was old enough to complain, my dad took great pleasure in the act of dragging my always-resistant ass to music festivals. A summer full of glorious music for him meant a summer full of unstifled groans from me. His taste in music back then — folk, folk, and nothing but folk –… More »

Bradford Cox Explains “Sharona”-Gate

At an Atlas Sound show in Minneapolis earlier this week, some heckler requested a cover of the Knack’s new wave nugget “My Sharona.” Frontman (and, for this tour, sole member) Bradford Cox responded by playing an hour-long cover of the song as a sort of absurdist joke. Reports of the show circulated quickly. And yesterday,… More »

Bradford Cox Covers “My Sharona” For An Hour In Concert

All hell broke loose during last night’s Atlas Sound show in Minneapolis when an audience member jokingly yelled “My Sharona,” referencing the Knack’s classic track, and Bradford Cox took him up on his suggestion. From the video description:

A drunk heckler jokingly shouted “MY SHARONA!” at the Cedar Cultural Center. Bradford responded, “Fuck… More »

Stream Atlas Sound Parallax

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:

Premature Evaluation: Atlas Sound Parallax

The latest solo record from one-man four-track recorder Bradford Cox is probably his most accessible release under the moniker, striking a pretty even balance between the hazier Atlas Sound material as well and Cox’s work in his more widely-known outfit Deerhunter. The songs on the record, for one, seem structurally tighter; songs like “Angel I… More »

The Creators Project @ DUMBO, Brooklyn, NY 10/15/11

Vice and Intel’s second annual Creators Project multimedia showcase moved to Brooklyn this year, opting for the open, scenic beauty of BK’s lush Brooklyn Heights neighborhood as opposed to the more cramped MILK Studios setup of last year. But, like last year, this year’s event showcased a broad spectrum of critically-respected musicians, both established (Florence… More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2011

Save a bit of humidity, it is an undeniably autumnal day in NYC. It’s gray, it is wet, and it feels positively gauche to jam to anything that would feel right at a beach. So to help to fill the void created by expunging “sunny music” from your daily playlist, and to show solidarity with… More »

Atlas Sound – “Modern Aquatic Nightsongs”

Bradford Cox has already allowed us to hear “Terra Incognita” and “Te Amo,” two of the songs from Parallax, the latest album from his Atlas Sound project. With the title of the third, “Modern Aquatic Nightsongs,” he seems to be inventing his very own genre. And the song, with its hazy lilt and its pillowy… More »

Atlas Sound – “Te Amo”
